Healthy Nutella Cookie Dough

Servings: 3 cups
Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
Cookie dough spiked with Nutella.  That's also guilt-free.  It's sweet, it's fudgy, it's chocolatey, it's OH, SO, GOOD.


  • one 15oz can Black Beans (drained and rinsed well!**)
  • 132g (½ cup) Homemade Nutella
  • ¼ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ½ tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
  • 64g (2 scoops) Unflavored Whey Protein Powder
  • 20g (¼ cup) Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
  • 7 packets Natural Sweetener (stevia, Truvia, etc.)
  • pinch of Salt
  • 144g (1½ cups) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • cup Mini Dark Chocolate Chips (optional)


  • In a blender (I used my NutriBullet), add the beans, Nutella, almond milk, vanilla extract, and stevia extract.  Blend until completely smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender if necessary.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the protein powder, cocoa powder, sweetener, and salt.  Scrape the blended bean mixture on top and stir together until completely combined.
  • Fold in the oats (and optional chocolate chips, if using).
  • Cover with plastic wrap, refrigerate overnight, and serve the next day for the cookie dough texture, but you can totally eat some now because that's the "true" cookie dough-eating experience.

Recipe Notes

**After draining and rinsing, the beans should measure out as ~1½ cups.  Mine weighed 240g.
