This might be the most ridiculous edible “cookie dough” I’ve ever made…but desperate times called for desperate measures. It whipped up in under 10 minutes, used ingredients that are typically stocked in the pantry, and really, really hit the spot. It’s also:
You pickin up what I’m puttin down?
*Please note, I am not a fancy food blogger, I literally just snapped a few quick photos and thought “I have to share this with my friend!” and alas, here we are, sista girl. Enjoy!
I had a serious craving for something sweet and lately it’s been an obsession with cookie dough. (Same for you? Raise ya hand!)
Not like the store bought kind, like the healthy version of the edible kind.
But I was missing some of the main ingredients for my go-to recipe.
And I was not about to head to the store just to pick up almond butter (and also because I have a serious love connection with that stuff…I can easily eat a half a jar in one sitting, so until I can get better self control around it, it doesn’t come into my house!)
I needed to improvise.
Even though there’s a perfectly good grocery store literally within a 3 min walk from my apartment.
Call me stubborn if you want….you’d be right, I am 😂
So this quick whipped up recipe is actually a mix between two of my fav edible cookie dough recipes:
BOTH of these are DE-LISH.
I just made the cookie dough below on a whim with what I had. I think this recipe will stick around but with a few modifications next time:
It would have been a smidg better with a buttery flavor. Next time, I’m going to make it with ghee (or butter) instead of olive oil.
It also needed some salt. Ghee might help with that.
I’ll shamelessly admit I ate this entire thing in one sitting. The calories in this cookie dough add up to about 390 calories total. That’s pretty darn good compared to oh, say, half a tub of almond butter (at roughly 1330 calories). AND. This cookie dough is packed full of nutrients (and the three things I look for in a well rounded meal: protein, complex carbs/fiber, and healthy fats).
Okay, we’re getting to the recipe in just a sec. Just a few more helpful details about the ingredients and blender to use.
Here are the ingredients I used, and a bit of info on how to choose your own if you don’t want to use what I did:
Listen I’m just gonna be honest. This cookie dough may not be for everyone. If you’re a hummus lover (like me!), I’m fairly confident you’ll love it and it may even change your life.
So the ingredients in this cookie dough may surprise you, but it really hit the spot for me! Maybe it’s because I was dying (cue my dramatics) for a healthy sweet treat but you be the judge for yourself and let me know what you think!

It needs a buttery flavor, I think. Definitely keeping this on the list for my next sweet tooth!
