Gut Friendly No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge

Let’s be honest – who doesn’t secretly (OR openly) prefer the taste of fresh chocolate chip cookie dough over the actual baked cookies?!  I guess you can’t go wrong either way…

When it comes to food, especially foods like homemade chocolate chip cookies, it’s not just the about the yummy taste.  Almost everybody I know has some kind of sentimental memory or nostalgic meaning tied to chocolate chip cookie dough!

Why not give yourself the best of both worlds:  the decadent taste, aroma and experience of fresh cookie dough, minus the raw eggs and blood sugar rollercoaster?

Cookie dough personally reminds me of my childhood days, when I would make Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies from scratch with my Grammy and she would sneak me some raw cookie dough even though I “wasn’t allowed”.

This recipe is incredibly versatile and SO easy to whip up!  It can be made into fudge or eaten fresh out of the bowl as straight-up cookie dough.  It’s a great snack or dessert and goes splendidly with a glass of milk or milk substitute.  It can be a big hit to bring to your next party- I brought it as fudge to a New Year’s Eve party last year and it disappeared within the first hour!

A few other bonuses of this homemade cookie dough:

  • Low-glycemic and high in protein
  • Microbiome-friendly 
  • Original version features Collagen peptides which are a staple in my life because they are loaded with specific amino acids which are the perfect fuel for our intestinal cells!

Below is my personal favorite way to make this recipe, and I even included substitutions to meet your individual nutrition needs and preferences. 

Gut Friendly No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Fudge Recipe:

fudgeIngredients:

  • 1/2 cup cashew butter (can be replaced with natural peanut butter or melted coconut manna)
  • 1/2 cup Vital Proteins collagen peptides powder (if you are vegetarian/vegan, replace with vanilla protein powder of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup butter, ghee, Earth balance or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil 
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (can be replaced with raw honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt – optional
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup chocolate chips

 

Directions:

Cookie Dough:

  1. Combine the first two ingredients (nut butter and protein powder) in a food processor until completely blended.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients gradually, one at a time, EXCEPT the chocolate chips (if you are using chocolate chips).
  3. Continue to blend everything until it reaches a uniform “cookie dough” consistency.
  4. Transfer cookie dough from food processor to a bowl, and stir in chocolate chips….and wah-lah, you have fresh chocolate chip cookie dough!

Cookie Dough Fudge:

  1. Follow all the above steps.
  2. Take a small 9×5- or 8×8-inch pan (i.e. banana bread loaf pan or brownie pan) and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  3. Spread cookie dough evenly across the parchment paper, and cover with saran wrap.
  4. Store in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours, then slice into fudge!

Lasts in the fridge for 5-6 days or the freezer for 3-4 weeks 🙂

ENJOY!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the best in its field. Terrific blog!

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
