Chocolate chip cookie dough…on a diet.

Recently, I’ve come to the realization that I’m not getting any younger, and if I don’t start now, I’m going to get rounder with my eating/lack of exercise habits. So, in a whirlwind of motivation, inspiration, and disgust at my modest amount of baby-fat, I’ve picked back up with my strength training and cardio-intense workout habits of my college days. (And I’m — thankfully — starting to see results!)

Today, I had a glimmer of weakness: I was craving chocolate chips cookies something FIERCE.

2014 Workout-strong Meghan decided to make chocolate chip cookie dough…the healthy way 😉

^^^I know it doesn’t look like the most appetizing snack in the world, but it conquers my sweet tooth 😉

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/3 cup cashews

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla extract

Splash almond milk

1/4 cup cacao nibs

1 tbsp PB2 with premium chocolate

Blend chia + cashews in your food processor until it become a powder.

Add protein powder, honey, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth. Add almond milk sparingly until mixture forms dough-like consistency.

Scoop into mixing bowl and fold in cacao nibs and PB2.

Refrigerate 1 hour. Enjoy 🙂

(The chia will gel up and thicken your cookie dough, so don’t worry if it’s a bit runny!)
