Healthy Peanut Butter Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookie Dough

Servings: 6 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes



  • In a large bowl, stir together the oats, protein powder, erythritol, flour, and salt.
  • In a blender, puree together the beans, almond milk, peanut butter, molasses, butterscotch flavor, and stevia extract. Scoop over the dry ingredients and fold until incorporated.  For best texture, cover and refrigerate overnight, but you can serve it immediately with chopped peanuts or mini chocolate chips

Recipe Notes

Please please please please pleeeaaasee do not use storebought butterscotch chips. Every bag I've seen contains partially hydrogenated oils (dangerous/unhealthy fats similar to trans fats). Just trust me, this cookie dough is packed with butterscotch flavor, it doesn't even need those silly chips!

  1. Ohhhhh MYYYYYYY GAAAAWWWWWDDDDDD, I wish I was your neighboor! This sounds soo unbelieveably amazing I can’t even think straight! Curious ? – can the protein powder be left out? if so what would go in it’s place?

    • Jessica | Desserts With Benefits

      I haven’t tried this without protein powder but I’m positive it can be replaced with something else. You can try using ~4 tbs oat flour or maybe some more brown rice flour, just be sure to add 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and maybe some more erythritol because the protein powder is pre-sweetened. Just taste it as you go along 🙂 Hope you like it!

  2. my sweet god, it looks so delicious! *__*
    Now, i’m sure, I’m going to visit your blog veeery often. 🙂

  3. This looks great but, I absolutely HATE peanut butter. Is there any way the PB can be substituted with something else? Any suggestions? My stomach is grumbling now at the sight of this, but my taste buds won’t appreciate the peanut butter! 🙂

    • Pecan butter! Genius! =D Thank you so much for your help. And, I know, I’m weird like that… no peanut butter, no bananas, no weird textures. lol. 😉

      Whattt??? You don’t like PEANUT BUTTER?!? D:
      That’s okay 🙂 I’m sure any other nut butter will work as long as it’s a little on the liquidy side from being raw with no additives. You can try sunbutter (although though I heard it tastes like PB?), almond butter, cashew butter, walnut, pecan, etc… they have a whole bunch of nut butter flavors at Whole Foods and other grocery stores.
      The main focus is the butterscotch so I think it’ll still taste good no matter what nut butter is used. Enjoy!

  4. This looks so great! I am also a food-loving/trying to be healthy/college student! It’s so great to meet another! 🙂

    This recipe is based off of my basic Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, which was inspired by Spoonful of Sugar Free:
    I paired the chickpeas with oats, brown rice flour and PB, which makes the cookie dough a complete protein source, whereas each ingredient alone is an incomplete protein. I also added protein powder to increase protein content and add flavor and sweetness.

  6. I kind of find this a little funny. I mean people keep getting irritated, saying that you copied Katie’s recipe, but your recipes are actually really different…. Whatever.
    P.S. I cannot wait to try this!!!

    • Jessica | Desserts With Benefits

      Yes, I really did not mean to offend anyone, but every recipe I post where I don’t cite someone else, I thought of and made myself. Although chickpeas are a unique ingredient to use, it’s been done before (I’ve seen a blogger make a cookie-dough-like-thing using cannellini beans years ago).

      But, I do give Katie credit for being an awesome recipe-innovator, she’s amazing! 😀 I visited her site when she first started blogging and read every single one of her posts in one sitting. She’s a great writer (not to mention hilarious!)

    If you don’t want to use protein powder use milk powder, simple and still taste
