If I were on death row there would most definitely be chocolate included in my last meal. And a lot of it. It is THE craving I can’t seem to shake. But it is okay, because I’ve got this clean eating cookie dough recipe that I’m not even kidding you guys…it is as good as a REAL dessert. This is my go to ‘cheat’ snack, and you can actually feel good about it. Protein packed, healthy fats, and even some antioxidants from the chocolate chips (that IS why we eat chocolate, right?). Grab the few goodies you need, a spoon, and get ready to breathe easy. Cooke dough to the rescue!
Ingredients (1 serving)
- ½ cup plain Greek Yogurt (Fage 0% is my favorite)
- 1 Tablespoon nut butter (I use natural peanut butter usually, but almond is delish too!)
- DASH almond extract (You can use vanilla, but almond is totally key to a sweet nutty flavor)
- Chocolate chips (I usually use about 10 dark chips, but I’m going to leave the amount of chips up to you, like a good friend would do…)
Just stir all of the ingredients together until the nut butter is blended throughout. Dig in & enjoy!
Note: I prefer my Greek yogurt unsweetened, but if you like a little more sweetness, add a squeeze of honey or agave, or a splash of maple syrup!
Do you have any ‘taste so good I can’t believe it’s healthy” desserts? Please share!
