That’s right ya’ll. Come bask in the deliciousness.
After grazing on too much cookie dough ice cream recently, I knew there had to be a better way to maintain the greedy trend of shoving cookie dough down my throat without it being a death sentence to my waistline.
Then whaaalah! I came up with a homemade dough that has zero white refined sugar, less butter AND has ingredients that are good for you. The addition of coconut oil and coconut sugar, both with wonderful health benefits, proved to be fantastic substitutions.
This recipe comes very darn close to original dough — even approved by my picky hubs. Very tasty. Very satisfying. Delectable goodness, indeed.
GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS
- 1 cup + 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted but not hot
- 1/2 cup Stevia in the Raw baking blend (find it in the baking aisle)
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- approx 3/4 cups chocolate chips or more (milk chocolate or semi sweet — it’s your choice)
- approx 1/8 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder or more
- Cream together butter, coconut oil, Stevia, coconut sugar and vanilla extract.
- Add flour and cocoa powder to the mix and continue to blend until thoroughly mixed.
- Now throw in the chocolate chips and blend again.
- Eat in delicious scoops from the bowl, or chill in the fridge for approx 20 minutes before eating.
- To create “bites”, press mixture about 1-inch high into plastic container and freeze for approximately 30 minutes. Cut out the bite shapes before eating.
Important note: Although the frozen bites do make for a lovely presentation, be aware that they do not stay frozen for very long, so eat them right away! I actually prefer to eat the dough with a spoon right out the container in the fridge. That’s how I roll.
So tell me… you down with grazing on some homemade cookie dough?
