You all know I love cookie dough.
And I honestly don’t care that there are raw eggs and white flour in it.
Let me live my life. Mmmm-k? 😉
However, this Skinny Edible Cookie Dough for One doesn’t have eggs OR white flour in it.
So we can all rest assured that no one will be at risk of salmonella from this recipe. Ha!
By the way, does that really happen from cookie dough or are people just trying to stop all of us from living our lives?
Okay, back to this delicious, gluten free, and protein-packed recipe for one.
You will not find an easier and healthier edible cookie dough recipe out there!
The only dry ingredients in this recipe are plain protein powder and coconut flour. Yep that’s it!
As for the wet ingredients, it’s just unsweetened applesauce, vanilla extract, and almond (or butter) extract.
Plus, a spoonful of mini chocolate chips to finish it off! Done-o!
Mix these 6 ingredients together and let the coconut flour soak up the liquids for a few minutes. Once the healthy single serving cookie dough is the correct consistency, by all means, dig in!
If the finished dough is too dry or too wet, add small amounts of the appropriate ingredients to make the cookie dough just how you want it.
I use Ariix PureNourish Natural Flavor Protein Powder and love it for many reasons. It’s comprised of plant proteins, has pre- and probiotics, low glycemic (won’t raise your blood sugar), contains nothing artificial, and uses natural sweeteners from fruits and vegetables.
Depending on the protein powder you use, you may not need the vanilla or almond extract.
You may want to taste the edible chocolate chip cookie dough before adding the vanilla and almond extracts, just in case!
As for the sweetness of this recipe, you notice I don’t add additional sweetener.
My protein powder, though not that sweet, adds plenty of sweetness along with the chocolate chips for my taste.
However, everyone’s protein powder is different and everyone’s palates are different.
If you try a couple little tastes of the dough and find it needs to be sweeter, add a little honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar.
There are only 166 calories and will still be low calorie with the addition of a sweetener.
Stevia is a great option too if you fancy it!
Alright, I have rattled on long enough.
Let’s get you baking…errrr scratch that….eating this easy edible chocolate chip cookie dough!

Skinny Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough for One
- small bowl
- 2 Tbsp unflavored vegan protein powder
- 2 Tbsp coconut flour
- 5 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp almond (or butter) extract
- 1 Tbsp mini chocolate chips dairy free
- Mix all ingredients together in bowl. Let dough sit for a few minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the liquid. If the dough is too wet, add a little more protein powder or coconut flour. If the dough is too dry, add a little more applesauce.
Hello! I tried making this recipe. I can see the merit in it. I think it was just a bit too much apple sauce to give it a cookie dough consistency and flavour. I doubled the dry and kept the apple sauce at 5 tbsp and it was much, much better. So either half the apple sauce or double everything else!
Overall, a great low calorie, high protein dessert!
Hi Ashley! Thanks so much for trying this recipe and sharing what worked best for you. I love it when you make a recipe your own by adjusting quantities or using substitutions! Happy snacking. 🙂
I really wanted to love this, but all I can taste is the applesauce and chocolate chips. Any suggestions?
Oh shoot, that doesn’t sound tasty. Bleh! Shawna, I really appreciate your honesty. My guess is the type of protein powder used did not lend well to the recipe. Perhaps adding more vanilla and almond extract will help. Or try a vanilla protein powder and eliminate the extracts all together. This recipe can be tricky because we all have different protein powders that taste completely different. Maybe the consistency was off too? Let me know if I can help further because this snack/dessert can be so yummy!
hello, can i use a non-flavored protein powder?
Hi! Absolutely! The protein powder I typically use is unflavored, that is why I add vanilla and almond extract. I hope you enjoy it. Happy snacking!
