Choc Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls

I was eating cookie dough last week while baking cookies, who am I kidding, very few cookies actually made it in the oven. I don’t know why I bother, the dough just tastes so damn good, raw cookies are the way of the future…. Or dough straight from the food processor. I can see you judging again, stop it and go try it, it’s delicious. Add some protein and voila, could just about be considered breakfast food. This is loaded with healthy fats, no sugar, high in protein ANNNNDD it’s cookie dough!!! If that doesn’t just about make you pee with excitement I seriously don’t know how to help you. You will probably have to go join those weirdos that DON’T LIKE MANGOS.

1 cup protein powder (vanilla or flavorless)
2 tbs chia seeds
1 cup coconut butter
1 cup nut butter
1 egg (vegans use flax-egg alternative)
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbs lucuma powder (optional)
Stevia to taste (or 1/4 cup raw honey/maple syrup)
1/4 cup raw cacao nibs or dark choc chips

This is so easy it’s stupid. I probably don’t even need to tell you but I will because I am nice & I want to share the cookie-dough love. Get your food processor out, add everything except the cacao nibs and blend to combine. Taste it. If it needs more stevia, add some & re-blitz. Add cacao nibs, pulse briefly to combine. You are ready to roll. I rolled mine in some extra chia seeds & cacao nibs, coconut would be good too or you can just leave them as they are. If you are feeling totally lazy you could just press it into a dish, let it set & eat it like fudge……mmmmmm fudge. I keep mine in the freezer but the fridge will be just fine.

    What’s the difference between coconut butter and coconut oil? Thanks!

  4. Hi Emma, coconut oil is the oil extracted from the cold pressing of coconut flesh. Coconut butter is the coconut flesh puréed into a butter, oil & all. There is a recipe on how to make coconut butter on the blog if you have a high speed food processor 🙂

    I’m just wondering i’ve looked everywhere for coconut butter and almond butter but i keep getting told that coconut butter is just the same as the butter when the oil hardens and almond butter is just almond spread is this true? Also i cant wait to try these yummie treats!! Thanks (:

  6. That is completely untrue Zoe! How ridiculous. That is like saying that peanut butter & peanut oil are the same thing which they are clearly NOT! How frustrating for you. Where do you live? If you have a good food processor you could make either of those things yourself (recipe on the blog). Coconut butter & almond butter are the actual coconut & almond processed to turn that whole lots into a butter, just like peanut butter (without the added $hit). Coconut oil & almond oil are the oil that is extracted from those things through cold pressing. The flesh is then discarded.

    Hi. I’m new to the healthy food world and I’m loving your blog. Im just wondering if I have to use protein powder or not? If I do what one do you recommend?

  10. Hi Brooke! Welcome & thanks for stopping by the blog. You don’t have to use protein powder, you can substitute for almond meal or coconut flour instead. I use a flavorless grassfed whey protein usually.
