If you’ve been following my blog for some time you’ll know I like dough and batter and under baked stuff. Actually I’d rather eat the dough than the cookies. And I like the batter better than the cake. And when it comes to baking buns or loaves I always end up eating at least one bun worth of dough. Yes, it’s that bad.
With that being said it is no wonder I went so happy when I found a recipe on healthy cookie dough on Pinterest a long time ago. Dough for breakfast?! Yes please! But I really didn’t like the recipe. It didn’t taste like cookies dough at all. I’ve tried a couple of other recipes on healthy cookie dough since, but neither of them were good. It was impossible to find one which actually tasted like cookie dough.
You know what all the recipes had in common? Chickpeas. As much as I love chickpeas I have to say that they do no good for cookie dough. I don’t know if I do anything wrong, but I could always taste the chickpeas and the dough got a king of “sharp” taste I didn’t like.
So I decided to develop a recipe on healthy cookie dough which actually tasted like cookie dough. This is the result.
I’ve tested them one some of my best friends and they really liked them (; One of them said she thought they had a slight taste of marzipan, and she’s actually right. But mostly they taste like cookie dough – the hint of marzipan isn’t very strong.
BTW – I’m going to Barcelona tomorrow! On a study trip with my high school – everyone in DK goes on a study trip in the second year of high school (read about the school system here – it’s way different from others). I have been in Barcelona before, but I seriously love that city and can’t wait to go back. It is gonna be so nice. I’ll be posting pics on Instagram :)
This recipe uses brown sugar. I know this isn’t exactly healthy. I would actually have used coconut sugar, but we didn’t have any left. Feel free to sub coconut sugar or palm sugar for brown sugar.
