Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I should start off my saying welcome and I’m glad you’re here!  Desserts with Benefits is a healthy dessert recipe blog that revolves around health, balance and an active, balanced lifestyle…  with some healthified cookies, cakes and brownies snuck in between  :)

I believe that desserts can and should be eaten every day without feeling guilty or weighed down (hey, sweet tooth, did I get your attention?).  That is why this blog exists.  As a (dessert-obsessed) university student earning her bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Sciences, I feel it is my duty to share the knowledge I have gained and provide recipes that any dietician would be enthused to eat.

Sweet confections with nutritional benefits?  Yes, please!

So go ahead, have that sweet treat on a daily basis without worrying about excess calories, unhealthy fats, sugar, cholesterol, etc.  The recipes you find here don’t taste healthy at all, but trust me, they are.  They taste just as sweet, rich and decadent as something you’d find at a bakery, perfect for those who strive to be healthy but don’t want to give up dessert in order to do so.

And that brings me to this Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough recipe.  It is safe to eat raw (no eggs, unlike the stuff you’d find at the grocery store), it is 100% whole grain (no all purpose flour here!), and is low in sugar and high in fiber and protein (so you avoid the sugar-rush and sugar-crash).  This is the perfect recipe to launch the new blog, Desserts with Benefits — a name that signifies exactly what it states:  desserts with health benefits!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Cookie dough is a sweet tooth’s classic comfort food.  Just like how savory-lovers will eat mac and cheese or mashed potatoes, us dessert-lovers will head straight to the fridge with a spoon and a smile.

What makes us crave this unbaked treat?  Is it the endless supply of sugar?  The refined flour?  Or is it the abundance of butter that brings it all together?  It’s all of that, and more.  When something so unhealthy is put into a convenient little container, all we see as a consumer is the pretty logo and a background scattered with innocent mini chocolate chips.  I should know, I used to eat cookie dough by the tub…  the Costco-sized tub (yes, it’s embarrassing!), so I know firsthand how good that stuff tastes.  But I turned a new leaf and am learning the ins and outs of nutrition.  I now know that the ingredients used by those cookie dough companies sure aren’t “innocent” in any sense of the word.  I know firsthand how bad that stuff is for the human body.  We aren’t made to consume such dangerous ingredients like hydrogenated oils, refined-to-the-bone white sugar and processed flour, we are made to eat natural foods, like this cookie dough!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Looks delicious, right?  Well, it is!  This all-natural cookie dough tastes just as sweet, just as buttery, and just as unhealthy as any storebought cookie dough, except this cookie dough is good for you…  this cookie dough has health benefits!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Eating nutritionally balanced sweets has given me, my family, my friends and hundreds of thousands of readers a new perspective on the word, “dessert.”

Dessert can now be healthy.

Dessert can now be guilt-free.

Dessert can now be beneficial to you as a whole…  mind, body and soul!

One of my favorite ways to healthify desserts is to make them low in sugar or even sugar free.  This is made easy by using stevia extract, a safe and natural sweetener that contains no sugar and no calories.  Sounds a lot like Splenda and aspartame right?  It’s not!  This extract is plant-derived and has changed the way I bake and eat sweets for the better.  I hope it can do the same for you too.  After someone introduced me to stevia, I fell in love.  I cut diet soda (filled with dangerous aspartame) and artificial sweeteners (like manmade Splenda, Sweet n Low, Equal, etc.) from my diet, cold turkey!  I have been using this natural product for years and love it more and more each and every time I use it.  That is why I am giving away a 4-oz bottle of stevia extract to THREE people.  Yes, three.

  61. dessertswithbenefits: February 1, 2013

    You say “chockohlawtay” like how you would say “chocolate” in Spanish: chalk-OH-law-tay… weird, I know! I made it up in Spanish class in middle school with my friends. It was about time for a change :)

  62. Joyce: January 31, 2013

    I like your new name much better… Really like what you do here; keep it up! :)

  63. Jordan D: February 1, 2013

    This recipe sounds awesome. Would oat flour, whole wheat flour, or coconut flour be an appropriate substitute for the brown rice flour? Love the giveaway, too!

  64. dessertswithbenefits: February 1, 2013

    I would suggest oat flour, since I’ve used that as a replacement before, but WW flour might work as well. I wouldn’t recommend coconut flour since it absorbs too much liquid. Hope you like the recipe!

    It was such a pleasant surprise when I saw the new blog heading. I’m also a college student trying to eat as healthy as I can. It’s not always easy when I can only eat from the dining commons! I would totally make this cookie dough right now if I had some protein powder, I’ve been meaning to get some more but it’s just too expensive for me right now.

  102. Rose: February 3, 2013

    I didn’t know Stevia came in a drop bottle! It would be fun to incorporate this in new dishes.

    LOVE the new site! I’ve been following you on Pinterest since late summer!!! I appreciate all of the Healthy recipes for sweets. I do have 1 question. I am allergic to oats and many of your recipes call for oat flour…do you have suggestions for a healthy substitute? Thanks.

  115. dessertswithbenefits: February 4, 2013

    All flours work differently, especially gluten free flours, but I would recommend substituting the oat flour with brown rice flour or sorghum flour :)

  120. Jenny D: February 4, 2013

    I love this idea! While I do enjoy all the dessert hummus recipes and using garbanzo beans or white beans sometimes I just want something more simple.

    I did make this but pretty much used all different ingredients. Used Hazelnut butter, coconut flour, coconut sweetener and whey powder. Because of the whey its probably not the same texture just as in some of your other recipes, but I am already aware of that and the flavor is still great :) It is still similar to a cookie dough texture, just a little more sticky.

    Thanks again for always using weighted measurements. I use my scale more than I use measuring utensils which really helps things be more accurate!

  145. Sara: February 9, 2013

    Just made a couple tablespoons of this(with a little more protein powder and omitted the flour)with unsweetened carob chips and it tastes so sweet and delicious! Thanks so much for the great idea!

  146. Alaine @ My GF DF Living: February 11, 2013

    This looks great! I just found your website and I am in love. New obsession!

  147. Marjory McKean: February 14, 2013

    I’m really intrigued by Stevia, it looks like in the UK it is easiest to get in a powder format, so would it still be the same quantity. If I was looking to replace sugar in recipes how much stevia should I use?

    Hi Marjory! Here is a great stevia conversion chart:

    First of all, that cookie dough looks incredible and yummy and totally not good for you even though it is.

    Second, would you mind sharing a bit about the process of switching from blogger (that’s what you were on, right?) to your new blog? I’m hoping to switch from my blogger blog to a new self hosted domain, but I’m feeling a bit lost. I love your new site, so any tips would be very welcome.

  150. dessertswithbenefits: February 16, 2013

    Thanks Ruta! I hired a web developer who did all that for me, since I am not the most technologically advanced young adult out there lol.
    I would suggest googling whatever questions you have for a step-by-step process or just going to the blogger help page :)

  151. Morton Henrichsen: February 18, 2013

    I simply want to tell you that I am just new to blogs and really loved you’re blog site. More than likely I’m planning to bookmark your site . You amazingly have outstanding stories. Kudos for sharing your blog.

  152. Lucia: February 22, 2013

    This looks amazing, but also very expensive to make and the ingredients are impossible to find living in South America. Sorry.

  154. Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli: March 10, 2013

    Oh my gosh, this looks AMAZING!! I thought for sure when I
    saw the picture on Foodgawker that it was just another chickpea
    “cookie” dip…I love that it’s packed full of protein! I’ve GOT to
    try this! Thanks for posting!

  155. Morgan: April 15, 2013

    It would be really helpful and I think much appreciated by lots of people if you could put some nutrition facts with your recipes! Like calories, fat, protein :) thanks for the recipe!! I am definitely subscribing to your blog! Ballerina in training here so this will sure come handy! :)

  156. Sam: July 31, 2013

    Would it be fine to make this with any ole protein powder?

  157. dessertswithbenefits: July 31, 2013

    I’m afraid brown rice protein powder reacts very differently than whey, egg and casein protein powders. Vegan protein powders tend to absorb more water than whey/egg/casein. For some reason, whey tends to get really gooey and sticky?
    While I have not tried it, I think soy protein powder and hemp protein powder might work to replace the rice protein.

  158. Stef: August 25, 2013

    I’m looking for BAKED Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Do you have one?

  159. Felisha: February 3, 2014

    How many calories is this?.

  160. dessertswithbenefits: February 3, 2014

    The entire recipe should have 1160 calories (really depends on the products you use though). The recipe makes 2.5 cups of cookie dough so a 1/2 cup serving will have 230 calories.
    But we should always remember, what matters is healthy, nutritious foods. More so than calories!
    Enjoy the recipe :)

  161. Glenna: February 12, 2014

    my oldest son was born with disabilities due to intake of artificial sweeteners, so now I avoid them all together, for his health, my own and my other children. How much sugar would you suggest using where you use stevia?

  162. dessertswithbenefits: February 13, 2014

    I am so sorry to hear that, Glenna. My thoughts and prayers are with you! <3 From what you said in your comment by keeping your family healthy, I'm sure you are a fantastic mother :)
    I just thought I'd let you know that stevia is not an artificial sweetener. The stevia linked to in the recipe is made with organic stevia (so no pesky chemicals or pesticides)!
    Of course, I understand if you would rather skip it. Just know that granulated sugar is sprayed heavily with chemicals and is a genetically modified crop. Please use organic sugar or an unprocessed sugar, such as sucanat or coconut sugar.
    1 tsp of stevia extract has the sweetness of 1 cup of sugar. Because of the sheer bulk of 1 cup of sweetener, you may want to increase the almond milk by about 1/4 cup (use more or less if needed)
    Hope you like the healthy cookie dough!

  163. dessertswithbenefits: March 7, 2014

    I have a GF Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe here:

    I am working on a new and improved recipe, though… one that tastes/feels like TollHouse! But that’s hard to make healthy, gluten free and vegan without trans fats, butter, sugar, bleached flour, blah :( I hope this recipe will suffice :)

  164. Anjel: March 29, 2014


    Can I use any kind of vanilla protein powder or does it have to be the one specified?


  165. dessertswithbenefits: March 29, 2014

    Some people have had success with other vegan protein powders (such as Vega and hemp) :)
    Sadly, whey, casein and egg protein powders don’t work :(

  166. Jacqui Filak: July 2, 2014

    I love these recipes. I want to feed my son and myself healthy foods. I do the best I can. My issue is with all the healthy sweet recipes I see, call for almond butters and milks or other nut related ingredients. My two year old has a severe nut allergy and peanut allergy. Are there any options out there for me?????

  167. dessertswithbenefits: July 3, 2014

    Jacqui Filak-
    Awww thanks so much Jacqui! Congrats on feeding your son and yourself healthy foods, seriously. With all the sodas, candies and chips available these days, people like you are hard to come across sometimes!
    If your son has nut allergies, I would recommend using seed butters. Tahini (sesame seed), sunflower seed butter, pumpkin seed butter and non-GMO soy butter can replace peanut butter without sacrificing taste. If those aren’t options for his allergies either, you can try using canned garbanzo beans that have been pureed in a blender or food processor.
    To replace the almond milk, you can try using non-GMO soy milk or organic dairy milk :)
    I hope these substitutions work out for you, and if not, let me know and I can do some more research to help you find some good allergy-free replacements!

  168. JW: September 9, 2014

    Finally gave this a try…it was AMAZING!! I substituted most of the ingredients for my own stuff but this is the first one I’ve come across that actually tastes like cookie dough. Fantastic! I’ve got a giant batch of it in my fridge now and can’t wait to eat more of it (although I’m being responsible and taking my time…especially since I’ve cooked and baked a ton of things this past week and need to step back for the next 2-3 weeks and not touch anything but the microwave lol). I’m definitely going to try making those fudgy brownies and putting this stuff on top for the days where I’ve been extra active and can afford a higher calorie dessert. In the meantime, using a tablespoon or two with fruit for dessert or snack is perfect. Great work on these recipes; thank you!

  169. dessertswithbenefits: September 9, 2014

    I’m glad you like the recipe!!
    I never have enough patience to eat this cookie dough with fruit, I just go all in. Face first 😉
    Thanks for trying it out!

  170. Cheyenne: September 9, 2014

    I just made this, had to do a few substitutions based off of what I had on hand… Used coconut flour and regular whey protein instead of the brown rice, and didn’t have any stevia but I had agave nectar and it still turned out amazing!!! Thank you!

  171. dessertswithbenefits: September 10, 2014

    I’m glad those substitutions worked out for you! I never would’ve thought that whey protein would work here, but I guess with the coconut flour it helped with the texture.
    Thanks for letting me know how it turned out!

  172. Ella: January 13, 2015

    This looks amazing!
    Just wondering if you have a nutritional table for it?
    Regards! :)

  173. Ella-
    I didn’t make a nutrition label for this recipe but a 1/2 cup serving should have:
    -230 calories
    -12g fat
    -23g protein
    The numbers really depend on the exact products you use though. Hope this helps Ella! :)

  174. Sbl: March 3, 2015

    Hi, I’m doing a school project on baking and how it connects with chemistry. I went through a few recipes on your sight and they were great, I would love to get your input on this matter as a nutritional scientist. Your input would really help me when writing my paper or constructing my experiment. Thank you.
