  1. In a medium-sized serving bowl, add the Step 1 ingredients and stir
  2. Add the Step 2 ingredients and stir again. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge overnight. Enjoy first thing in the morning!


*I used 5 stevia packets (really sweet, even for me, so I recommend 2-4), but erythritol, xylitol or sucanat would be great here!

Feel free to sprinkle on some mini chocolate chips and/or chopped hazelnuts.

    I have everything on the ingredients list except protein powder. Can I just leave that out or should I substitute something?

  4. Digigirl: May 4, 2012

    Thanks Jessica. I’ll give it a try!

    The protein powder provides sweetness and a creamy texture, so if you omit it you will most likely have to add more sweetener, cocoa powder (1-2 tbs) and flax (maybe just 1 tbs). You can give it a tiny taste the night before and make any adjustments from there.
    Hope this works! :)

    Hey there,

    I just wanted to let you know that Ive been following your blog for quite a while now making most of your cookie dough dip recipes and loving them all. I made this and your oatmeal raisin dessert oats recipes last week and they were soooo good. I can honestly say that they were the best of all of the recipes Ive tried from you. I could not believe that what I was eating was actually good for me. It tasted sooooo delish and sinful! ;) So, what I wanted to say is: THANK YOU and keep up the good work! :)
    I dont use protein powder, so I subbed in a mix of rice flour, cocoa powder and a tiny bit of a sugar sub to make up for it.


  7. Loula-
    I’m so glad you like the recipe! And thanks for sharing your protein powder substitute, a lot of people ask for that :)
