I’m sure someone out there is wondering what the nutrition stats are for this recipe.  I mean, these brownies are super decadent and they look and taste like they have about 2,392 calories each.

My recipe is nutritionally balanced with a good amount of healthy fats (no butter here!), complex carbohydrates, filling fiber, and satiating protein.  Other recipes are unbalanced, most of the time with 25g+ of unhealthy fats, barely any protein, and nearly A ¼ CUP OF SUGAR PER BROWNIE!!!  That blows my mind.

With my healthy Cookie Dough Brownies you can enjoy a sweet, decadent-tasting dessert and feel satisfied after one serving because the fat, fiber and protein will keep you full for hours.  Unlike the other recipe, where one brownie leads to another…  and another…  and another  (trust me, I’ve had my fair share of sugar-induced comas before!)

  1. I cannot handle all your yummy blondie and brownie recipes – it’s not fair! Such a severe distraction to my studies, you know…

  2. What a neat idea! I want to make these brownies very soon!

  3. oh. my. god. Thrilled to have discovered your blog! I was just about to quit sugar cold turkey- I’m a total addict. But it sounds like I could replace the processed sugary foods I eat with fiber-filling and healthy fat snacks instead! You saved me, I love sweets and am happy for my tongue to rediscover what really tastes good.

    • Awww thanks SO much Rosie!! You just made my day… more like my weekend, actually 😀
      I find it easier to “quit” things cold turkey too. Plus, it’s easier to do so when you get to fill up on sweet fruits, healthy veggies and secretly healthy desserts 😉 You really get to taste how food is supposed to taste… and it’s awesome!!
      Hope you like the recipes.

    I am so excited to see a HEALTHY recipe that has both cookie and brownie. I will be making this in the near future, as I like to bake. Thank you so much for sharing!

  5. I will be making these on Monday! I seriously can’t wait. Jessica you are a godsend!! I recently stopped eating gluten, dairy, sugar and soy so your recipes are FANTASTIC. Kudos to you for being so creative 🙂

  6. I have to make this!
    It looks sooooo delicious …
    Combining the two most awesome things is just a ticket to heaven.
    I only have one question,
    Can you omit the protein powder in the cookie dough? Or replace it with something else?
