Single Serving Cookie Dough

First the wheel was invented, then the light bulb, and now this.

Cookie Dough 11

Clearly I have a lot of history to brush up on before next year, but this single serving cookie dough has been my saving grace.  Have you ever wanted to eat a giant bowl of cookie dough? I know, only all the time.

But alas! If only we could enjoy a ridiculously large portion of this forbidden cookie dough fruit without gaining 20 pounds and catching some rare disease and disappointing our mothers!

Well get ready for your life to change because NOW YOU CAN. It’s 85 calories, 3 minutes to make, and 1176% miraculous.

But how? Didn’t your mother say that traditional cookie dough was bad? A mother knows these things. She was right about not eating beans on a date and she is right about this. Luckily, we’re both right.

Just think that we used to ride around with square wheels, bump into things if we didn’t light a candle to get our midnight snack, and catch salmonella from said cookie dough midnight snack because my mother has never been wrong. (Everyone nod! She might be reading this!) This delicious, vegan, and completely safe-to-eat cookie dough has changed my life, and hopefully it will change yours too.

Start with putting some coconut flour in the cutest little jar you can find.

Cookie Dough 1

Add in some vanilla, sweetener, and applesauce (or banana… or butter mwahaha).

Cookie Dough 2

And stir it up so everything gets all cozy. Feel free to add more or less sweetener, but this will require taste testing. I know, it’s tough. The struggle is real.

Cookie Dough 3

Now stir in the almond milk ONE TABLESPOON AT A TIME. Sorry for shouting, but this seems to be the secret to taming the otherwise wild coconut flour.

Cookie Dough 4

Three tablespoons of almond milk gave me perfect cookie dough, but you may want to stop at two.

Cookie Dough 5

Get out the chocolate chips. Be still my heart.

Cookie Dough 6

Remember that you’re using these super healthy stevia chocolate chips and give yourself permission to accidentally spill too many of them. Right into the cookie dough. Oops.

Cookie Dough 7

Stir up the cookie dough and think about how darn easy that was.

Cookie Dough 8

Stop thinking and eat.

    Not a huge fan of coconut flour (everything I do with it comes out with this weird spongy-grainy texture), but I will give this a shot!

  2. Joyce says

    Can I use cow’s milk (whole milk) instead of Almond Milk?
    You are fabulous!…Really look forward to your easy-peasy yummy recipes. I, too, find coconut flour gives “mealy” texture…but its so healthy. I think the more I eat it, the more I will like it.

  3. Kayla says

    Just tried this today! I’m kinda…meh on it. Maybe I had too much of high expectations. I think it’s just missing the “granular” mouthfeel that regular cookie dough tends to provide, and I think the coconut flour is too fine to provide that. Do you have any recommendations to add that granular “feeling” – even if it comes with extra calories? Tastes pretty darn close, though! It’s just the “feel” that feels off to me.

    • says

      Hi Kayla! Thanks for giving this a try. Hmm. Did you use erythritol/sugar or stevia? Using a granular sweetener may help get that feeling. I know coconut flour has its own texture that takes some getting used to. Good luck!

    • Erik says

      If calories don’t matter to you then use granular sugar or you can use granular erythritol to cut out those calories. You can use coconut sugar if you’d prefer to avoid the white stuff. You’d probably want to use butter instead of the banana or applesauce if it ends up too sweet depending on how much extra granular sweetener you use to get the texture you want.

      Though you might be able to get some extra graininess out of home-made apple sauce as well.

        Thank you for the solicitous suggestions, Erik! Hopefully these will help Kayla to fully enjoy this cookie dough:-)

    This was amazing! I followed this to a T and used banana instead of applesauce and just a little drop of liquid stevia to sweeten it. It ended up being 130 calories with the banana, but totally worth it. <3

  5. says

    I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest and immediately got up and made it right away. It is so good! And easy too! I’m eating it as I write this :)

  6. says

    Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum! Oh my goodness – you’ve done it again Kelly! Your make my list of to-make recipes sooooo long. Ah well it’s ok, now I can make lots of desserts without having tons of calories, fat, and sugar … score! :) Keep ’em coming.

    1176% miraculous? Lol, yes!

    You are such a talented blogger. I look up to you so much -. What an inspiration for a young teen blogger! Love you girl!

  7. Shari says

    This is genius! I totally just inhaled this. YUM! Next time I’m going to omit the chocolate chips, stir in a tablespoon of rolled oats, a few raisins and some cinnamon to make oatmeal raisin cookie dough! The base can really be a blank slate! Thanks for your creativity!

  8. Jamini says

    I just made this! I substituted pumpkin for the applesauce/ banana, added cinnamon, and used maple syrup. It was awesome!!!

  9. Jennah says

    I have made this both ways with applesauce and banana and I really didn’t enjoy it either way. I wish it had more of an actual cookie dough texture. I am big on textures in food and I just didn’t like the mushiness of this one. Love the concept and it looks really good!

  10. Jennifer says

    Can you use whole wheat flour? I don’t have any coconut flour but I want to try this right away! Would you use the same amount of whole wheat flour or would you need to use more?

    • Dulcie de Kock says

      I’m so glad you’re eager to try this recipe, Jennifer! However, coconut flour is so wonderfully unique that I would not recommend subbing anything else for it! But if you wanted to give the wheat flour a whirl while you wait for an opportunity to purchase the flour, I’m sure it wouldn’t hurt :-)

    This was ahhhmazing! Exactly what I was looking for. Definitely have a post-dinner sweet tooth and have been making a Greek yogurt peanut butter cookie dough I found on Pinterest. But I eat so much Greek yogurt to begin with, I was hoping to find something else. I used an overripe banana, cut the sweetener, and added coarse ground sea salt…perfection.

  12. Kristen says

    I love this! I didn’t use chocolate chips, but I used a little more honey. It turned into the best breakfast ever! I am going to have this every morning. Thank you for sharing! Btw, perfect after a winter morning run.

    • Dulcie de Kock says

      Thanks for stirring up this cookie dough, Kristen! I’m glad that you enjoyed it enough to make it a part of your morning routine:-)

    • Dulcie de Kock says

      Thanks for commenting, Alicia! Sadly, the properties that make coconut flour so magical are also what makes it nearly impossible(while still being edible) to substitute. You could try using almond flour, but there’s no guarantees! If you happen to find a fix that works; please let us know:-)
