• Wicked Good Raw Cookie Dough

    September 10, 2013

    Remember when I blogged about the Monster Cookie Dough Dip the other day? I mean, honestly, how could you forget? That stuff looked amazing! I couldn’t get it out of my mind, so I whipped up my own version over the weekend, and, I must say, it’s wicked good!

    Wicked Good Raw Cookie Dough

    In comparison, my recipe isn’t necessarily healthy, but I cut calories and fat (and gluten) where I could. I used almond meal instead of all-purpose flour, cinnamon cream cheese wedges from The Laughing Cow instead of regular cream cheese, and nixed the brown sugar and rolled oats all together.

    The end result was incredible. In-credible. Seriously, it was so delicious, I ate the entire batch myself in just three days—eating little spoonfuls here and there until it was gone. People, this stuff is dangerous, but, man, it’s good! I hope you try this recipe and love it as much I as do!

    Wicked Good Raw Cookie Dough

    Ingredients:

    Directions:

    1. Combine cream cheese wedges, almond butter, almond meal, powered sugar, butter, coconut oil, and vanilla extract in a food processor or blend by hand. (My food processor just kicked the bucket, so I mixed everything by hand.)
    2. Once the dough is blended, stir in the M&Ms and chocolate chips by hand.
    3. Refrigerate dough for at least an hour before serving. You want the coconut oil to harden up, so the dough gets nice and thick. (I’d suggest leaving it in the fridge overnight.)
    4. Grab a spoon and enjoy!

    OMGoodness, I almost wish I didn’t see this. I saw the other recipe, and when I noticed that it wasn’t gluten free, I closed the screen and went about my way. Now that I know you’ve made it, I cannot resist. I’m headed to the store for the ingredients. Thanks!!!!!

    I love anything cookie dough flavored. I wonder if the cheese spread could be replaced with anything since I’m lactose intolerant.

    Holy moly. When you mentioned how delicious you thought the original recipe looked I was hoping that you’d go for a remake!!

    The cheese wedges contain modified food starch, which can sometimes be made with wheat. Can you confirm with Laughing Cow that this is safe before I try it? I didn’t see anywhere on the site that the cheeses were gluten free.

    Once I know it’s safe, I’m planning on making and devouring this!!!

    Sorry, I’m not sure, but feel free to drop The Laughing Cow an email. They’ll be able to tell you for sure! https://www.thelaughingcow.com/contact-us/

    I just found this on The Laughing Cow FAQ page:

    Are your products gluten free?

    During the cheese production process we do not add gluten or any ingredients that are known to contain gluten. However, ingredients and products change on a consistent basis so it is always advisable to read the ingredients on each product before enjoying.

    I can’t find the cinnamon laughing cow anywhere!! All your recipes make me so jealous. Any ideas of where I can get it in NYC?

    Tina September 10, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    I’m not sure about NYC, but I’ve found them at Target. I think there’s one in NYC, right? There’s also a store locator on The Laughing Cow website that might be helpful: http://www.thelaughingcow.com/product-locator/

    I am seeing this stuff everywhere, and it always has me crying, “No! Okay, yes. But no!” Too dangerous to keep in the house! However, I should probably try to make it before the husband gets home from his business trip; it might have a chance of surviving at least a couple days!

    I am so hungry right now I can barely handle this haha I love raw cookie/brownie dough. I made the Trader Joe’s gluten free brownies last night, undercooked, with huge chunks of the Simply Lite sugar free dark chocolate from TJ’s, and then poured a bunch of Cointreau over the finished product. AMAZING. Not anywhere near as healthy as your raw cookie dough haha

    I have a HUGE bag of peanut M&M’s in my freezer right now. I wonder if using peanut flour and peanut butter would work with this! My boyfriend is severely allergic to almonds :(

    i showed this to my husband the first time you showed it & we were wondering what to eat with it. i guessed pretzels would work! i also think it’d be delish over ice cream.

    So funny that you said you couldn’t get this out of your mind becuz seriously, I was thinking about that recipe all weekend long. I am currently training for a physique competition and although I am on a bulking diet right now, I am supposed to keep my diet pretty much sugar free. But I am sooooooo going to make this dip someday, and no offense to your dip, I am going to go all out and make the original version with chopped up twix and heath bar added, LOL.

    Hi Tina – The cookie dough looks delicious! I would love to try making it, or at least a version of it anyway. Do you know if you could substitue Coconut oil with some other kind of oil, or would it be best to leave it out all together if not using coconut oil. Also – What is the reason for coconut oil? Is it Paleo? Are there other added health benefits compared to other oils. Love your site!

    Reply

    Tina September 11, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    Coconut oil was the sweetest option since it’s a dessert recipe, and when it cools, it hardens, so I don’t think another oil would work. Sorry! This recipe is not Paleo because it has dairy (cream cheese) and sugar in it.

    Briana September 12, 2013 at 8:41 am

    Hi! Thanks for responding. I’ll be heading out to purchase some coconut oil this weekend. The recipe looks to good to pass up!@Tina:

    Stop & Shop usually has it! It’s actually near the cream cheese and not with the rest of the Laughing Cow cheeses in the cheese section.

    I don’t think the consistency would be quite right, but you could try it!
