Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

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 name, 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!

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!
