A cookie dough SO GOOD that you can eat without worrying because it is egg free. You can also be guilt free because it is protein packed, gluten free, and refined sugar free too!
Sometimes I want a warm cookie. But sometimes I just want to enjoy the dough straight from the jar. I know I can’t be alone in this right? This dough gives you a great option! Not only is this cookie dough safer, it is also so much healthier than edible cookie doughs you will gind in the store. What it does NOT have: gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar, or oil. What is DOES have: a great source of plant based protein as well as fiber, plus a ton of chocolate chips and a whole lot of great flavor. Now doesn’t that sounds like a win-win??

Yes this is vegan, and yes it is full of protein. A lot of people have the misconception that it is hard to get protein on a vegan diet. But that is not the case! There are many options out there, and this utilizes on of my favorites: chickpeas. One cup of chickpeas contains a whopping 14.5 grams of protein. And this is just the tip of the iceburg on the nutritional benefits you get from these guys. Click here to read more on the nutritional facts and benefits chickpeas provide.
And then I decided to add one of my favorite plant based proteins. It is from a company called Nuzest and if you haven’t heard of them you are going to want to. They have a bunch of fun flavors but for this one I kept it simple and used their vanilla. It added the perfect touch.
