My good mate Dave (who has a new member in his family- Go stop by and demand him to name him Arman congratulate him!) sparked the most intense craving a few weeks ago when he shared this amazing Oreo Cheesecake recipe. 

I already told him in his post (you can see it in the comments section!) but growing up, my all time favorite cake/cheesecake was the Oreo cheesecake. My mum’s best friend Catherine (Hi Aunty Catherine! Yes, I am taking care of myself and drinking water with lemon upon waking……) has a sister whom is an amazing pastry and dessert chef. She was head chef at the Sheraton Hotel back in Melbourne and on random occasions, would gift Catherine with leftover desserts.

Catherine and my mum used to work together on the same floor (that’s how they became friends). Whenever Catherine’s sister gave her leftovers from the restaurant, she’d always share it with my mum, probably in an attempt to fatten her up. Mum would always enjoy some of whatever Catherine gave her, but would always keep some for Niki and me to share that night. 

I remember the first time mum brought home a slice of the oreo cheesecake and I asked her if someone had thrown dirt in it. After telling me off for making such a rude statement, she informed me my favorite cookie (oreos) were crushed up and blended with the cheesecake filling to produce this decadent dessert. I remember scoffing down an entire slice of it before greedily asking Niki to share hers with me. Being the fussy cow fussy person she is, simply hearing ‘cheese’ and ‘cake’ in the same sentence put her off.

WINNING. 

Ever since then, Catherine would always share a slice or three of the oreo cheesecake whenever her sister had leftovers from the restaurant. After Dave shared his post, he sparked an intense craving for not the actual cheesecake but for oreo cookies. I didn’t have oreo cookies on hand BUT I did have the basics for this cake batter for one. In moments like these, quick thinking and some creativity came into play. I whipped up a batch of my 4 Ingredient paleo ‘nutella’ cookies, adapted the cake batter dip to make it more ‘creamy’ tasting and a thicker texture and added crushed up ‘nutella’ cookies in it. Enter- Healthy Cookies and Cream Dip for one.

This healthy cookies and cream dip for one is a texture lover’s dream- Smooth, creamy dip mixed with chunks of cookie pieces. While it may look sinful, it’s actually ridiculously healthy and can totally be a suitable breakfast option! It’s packed full of fiber, healthy fats and thanks to the mashed banana, and added dose of creaminess (and fruit!). If you end up using my four ingredient paleo nutella cookies as the ‘cookies’ in it, this recipe is completely gluten free, vegan, paleo, dairy free and refined sugar free! 

Hack! For an even thicker texture (and for staying power!), PLEASE add a scoop of vanilla protein powder to it. As mentioned in previous posts, I recommend this paleo protein powder, this vegan protein powder and this  casein protein powder.

Ingredients

  • 1/2- 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce OR 1 small/medium mashed banana
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder of choice I tried a paleo blend, a vegan blend and a casein blend*
  • 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice**
  • 1 T coconut flour Can sub for gluten free oat flour if not strictly paleo
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1-2 Paleo 'nutella' cookie crushed (or chocolate cookies of choice)
  • 2 T nut butter of choice I used almond butter
  • 1 T pure maple syrup can sub for another sticky sweetener
  • Dairy free milk***

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, combine your applesauce/mashed banana with the protein powder, coconut flour, granulated sweetener of choice and sea salt and mix well.
  • In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt your nut butter with maple syrup until combined. Stir in the vanilla extract and pour into the dry mixture and mix well until fully combined. If batter is still too crumbly, using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk until a very firm batter is formed. If batter is too thin, add a dash more flour. Stir through your crushed cookies of choice until fully mixed in.
  • Transfer to a bowl and top with extra crushed cookies if desired and enjoy!

Notes

* Protein powder is optional but if you do omit, add an extra tablespoon or two of flour.
** I didn't use any sweetener as my protein powder was sweetened
If you freeze the recipe, it's best to thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

  1. No cheesecake for me – not a fan at all – but I’ll take this any day. My favourite way to enjoy Cookies and Cream so far has been the aptly named ice cream flavour from our local Italian-owned scoop store. Where do I apply to become a taste teser for all of your healthy dips ;)??

  2. You have a huge sweet tooth, I think! How about some quick one serving healthy soups? Or quick and easy take-out type recipes, or one serving copy-cats?????

  3. Cookies and cream dip for breakfast…what a treat! Amazing that it is so healthy too, so you don’t even have to feel like you’re indulging!

  4. Thank you so much for the shoutout, Arman! Little Robbie (uh, I mean little Arman) is doing quite well. Dad would be doing much, much better if he had some of this dip though! It looks awesome, and I just want to faceplant that bowl. That is allowed, right? 🙂

  5. OMG that looks so good. I only got into cheesecake a couple of years ago, and now it’s my favourite type of cake. What a waste of the first quarter of my life.

  6. My favorite cake is probably carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I love cream cheese frosting, but honestly do not like cheese cake. GASP I KNOW RIGHT?! If I had to choose I would probably say peanut butter cheesecake just because it masks the cheese flavor =P

  7. Oooh I love cheesecake. Especially original NY cheesecake. I like some of the flavored ones, but honestly good ol’ plain cheesecake is my favorite.

    As for cookies and cream, it’s always been a favorite of mine. I went through a pretty serious oreo phase several years ago, so this dip is looking prettttty good.

  8. 1. Spoon found now give me this dip. 2. I can’t even understand the “no Oreos on hand” remark. What? 3. My fave cheesecake ever is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough at Cheesecake Factory, Try it!

  9. HOW. How do you keep on coming up with ideas like this!?
    Niki is just like my mom. Mom would say, “cheese is supposed to be on pasta, not in cake.” More for my brother and me!
    Carrot cake all. the. way. Still absolutely dying to make your recipe for that. 🙂

  10. Hands down, CHOCOLATE. But, if you add peanut butter or put peanut butter in a cake, that will be my favorite too! I’ve also taken a liking for pies–pumpkin to be specific! I’m sure that you have similar cake dip recipes on your blog, too! I’ll definitely look into this one!

  11. Hi Arman!
    This looks insanely delicious!!!
    But I’m curious as to what Paleo protein powder you used? (I thought that protein powders were off limits).
    And what is a Paleo Nutella cookie? Where do you find them???

      1. Thank you so much!!! I appreciate it… I’ve been wanting a protein powder so bad. And I should have read your story more in depth, because it clearly says for the Nutella cookie recipe click here..(sorry) ? I was just too excited over the ice cream!!! Lol… I can’t wait to try it!!!
