Edible Cookie Dough is all the rage now! They even have some gluten free version at the famous, DO chain if you haven’t checked it out yet!
I’ve seen paleo versions of this using almond flour, which is awesome, but I can’t eat raw almond flour because of the nut’s oils. I can’t eat raw almonds either because I get a really itchy mouth!
This particular edible cookie dough recipe is my absolute favorite because it incorporates plain GELATIN, which does amazing things for our bodies! You have probably heard about the benefits of gelatin (which is mostly made up of collagen and water) for your hair and nails. Gelatin and collagen are also protein packed (they are animal products, so this recipe is not vegan!) and do really intensive work healing your gut. When it is soup season outside, I get tons of gelatin from my bone broths, which base all my soups and chilis, but for summer time (and pregnancy!) I can’t think of a better way to consume this gelatin super food 🙂
Edible Paleo Cookie Dough Recipe
You will need a mixer, 5 minutes and….
1 packet of unflavored gelatin
2 cups of cashew butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup maple syrup or coconut sugar
1/4 cup almond or coconut milk
1 cup of Chocolate chips
- Combine the first 5 ingredients and blend or mix until totally incorporated and creamy intensity
- Stir in chips (or other add ins!) by hand
- Refrigerate and eat by the the spoonful for snacks!
This edible cookie dough definitely has a nutty flavor from all the cashew butter, BUT the consistency is SO perfect and the sweetness and chocolate are so well balanced, that your brain is really fooled into feeling like you’re eating raw cookie dough! Enjoy this protein packed snack!
