“Whenever you post these single serve dessert like recipes, you remind me of a single girl watching the notebook with a tub of ice cream”.

Thanks, Niki. I’m glad these recipes spark such thoughts in your mind. 

Not sure where such a correlation has come from, but I’d like to disagree- Mainly because I’ve never seen that movie. My sister tried to convince me to watch it, but I couldn’t get the thought of Regina George out of my head.

Confession time. 

I mentioned a few weeks ago that my sweet tooth has been prevalent lately. Up until then, I’d definitely have enjoyed more savory style breakfasts (and lunches too!)– Eggs with toast, potatoes with cheese (remember that phase?!) and even dinner leftovers. I can confidently say that for the last 2 months, my sweet tooth has taken precedence and nothing I can do will tame it. As much as I want to say my savory tooth has returned, it hasn’t. In fact, my sweet tooth has gotten more and more powerful and it doesn’t look like it’s stopping anytime soon.

I don’t think it’s a bad thing that I crave sweet stuff first thing in the morning, it’s just a matter of confusion. I don’t *THINK* I’ve made any changes in my diet or typical lifestyle to credit this newfound craving. I don’t *THINK* I’m missing out on any particular nutrients or anything which would have my body screaming for the saccharine. I don’t *THINK* it’s part of a (delayed) quarter life crisis.

How do I combat this?

Make sweet breakfasts. 

You’ve probably noticed a VERY similar trend on the blog this year- Sweet Breakfasts.

This, my friends, is due (in most parts) to my ever growing sweet tooth and it’s need to be satisfied. I’ve been having sweet breakfasts for the last few weeks that it’s been a great time to experiment with recipes for the blog…..and eat it straight after. While oatmeal and even brownies have been great on rotation, I felt like throwing something else in the mix- Cookie dough. Healthy edible cookie dough. Healthy edible cookie dough….for breakfast. 

Oh, and for one.

This healthy edible breakfast cookie dough is the definition of dessert for breakfast and you’d be fooled into thinking it was the real deal. The taste and texture resembles real cookie dough but has none of the typical ingredients- No butter, flour, sugar or oil! It’s a balanced meal (or hearty snack!) which hits all the main food groups- Protein, healthy fats and slow releasing carbohydrates. It takes barely any time to prep (5 minutes!) and if your anything like me, make a double portion the night before (seeing as it’s single serve!)– Evening snack and breakfast the next morning! It’s also perfectly suitable for those following a vegan, gluten free, dairy free and paleo lifestyle!

HACK! Want to make this completely sugar free? You betcha it’s possible. Because I use a sweetened protein powder (I recommend these ones- Paleo | Vegan | Casein), I omit the optional pure maple syrup. I actually even prefer this texture and my amazing test tester can attest to it (Hint- I messaged her the night before for her to make for her breakfast!)

Make this healthy edible breakfast cookie dough for one and please- Someone find my savory tooth. I miss my eggs and toast.

….Until tomorrow morning when my sweet tooth will dictate something else.

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup coconut flour (Can sub for gluten free oats/oat flour- See notes below)*
  2. 1 scoop vanilla protein powder**
  3. pinch sea salt
  4. 2 T nut butter of choice (I used smooth cashew butter but peanut/almond works great!)
  5. 1 T maple syrup (optional)
  6. 1 T- 1/4 cup dairy free milk of choice***
  7. Handful of dairy free chocolate chips (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  2. Stir through the nut butter of choice and maple syrup (if using it) until a very crumbly mixture remains.
  3. Using a tablespoon at a time, add the dairy free milk of choice until a VERY thick batter is formed- Stir through chocolate chips and refrigerate overnight/for 30 minutes or enjoy immediately.
Notes
  1. * I recommend using coconut flour it works with oats/oat flour too- You'll need to decrease the dairy free milk considerably.
  2. ** This is optional but highly recommended- If you omit, you'll need to decrease the dairy free milk and ensure you add 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice.
  3. ** Depending on the protein powder you use and the flour, you may need more- Adjust accordingly.
  4. This is best made the night before to really firm up but tastes delicious as is. It is freezer friendly too!

You don't need to blend or process all ingredients, but they lend a smoother texture- Although I do like my banana chunks in them These brownies are not super sweet, as the protein powders used all had sweetener in them. Adjust accordingly if you'd like a very sweet brownie. Brownies are best kept and enjoyed refrigerated- They are also freezer friendly

  1. I’m a little bit savory, little bit sweet breakfast person. When I was a kid, it was all about the chocolate croissant with the hot chocolate. Then I went really savory–eggs with salsa, that sort of thing. Now I’m pretty predictable–I have my english muffin or oats with jam and nut butter before I workout and yogurt and something carby after. I think I just like not having to think about it.aka lazy

  2. You know me, I’m all about the savory breakfasts, especially when eggs, potatoes and cheese are involved.

    I saw the cutest little single serving mini bowls at Target yesterday. They were adorable and would work perfectly for your single serve sweet breakfasts.

  3. Well I already had breakfast, which sort of sucks, but since this is kind of a protein cookie dough, I can totally have this for my post-lift snack right? Cause it’s already in the fridge chilling for later…..

  4. I am a fan of this hands-down! The next batch is already chilling in the fridge for tomorrow…if Stefan doesn’t get his greedy fingers on it first 😉

    1. P.S. I have read (aka most probably seen on TV) that apparently taste changes every 10 years or so. I used to have a huuuuuuge sweet tooth but since round about two years I tend to crave all things savory more.

  5. I ALWAYS have sweet breakfasts when I’m cooking at home, but once in a while, I like to make eggs! However, lately I’ve been loving curry for breakfast because it’s so warm and there’s so much you can put in it!
    I can imagine how delicious this cookie dough would be if you microwaved it a little bit. Just ooooooozing and steaming from your spoon!

  6. I’ve always been a lover of sweet things for breakfast, but recently I’ve been craving all the savoury things. I think it’s cuz I don’t eat anything but sweets when I’m recipe testing and my body is finally starting to revolt haha

  7. Hi Arman! Sorry you had the flu and am glad you’re (hopefully) up and creating again. I just discovered your blog at the end of last year, 2015. You have an amazing talent. I look forward to reading everything you put out and the pics are great too. Puppy looks cute in your hoodie! Will begin trying your recipes soon and thank you for putting such thought and detail into your work. It really is an enjoyable read!

  8. All right, I know what’s my breakfast tomorrow! AMAZING!
    Just one question: Ist T tsp or tbsp? 😀
    Thanks for sharing your creativity with food 🙂

  9. I have more of a salty tooth than sweet but I gotta admit, all of your sweets stuff always make me drool! Love that many of them are just for a single serving so I can’t get too outta control.

  10. You are my new hero. This recipe and your blog are everything I need in my life right now. lol Trying this tonight after the kids go to sleep.
