I promise to share the recipe for this edible cookie dough recipe with you ASAP, but first I have a few people to thank.

First, to my friend Michelle who started the edible cookie dough trend years ago when we were roommates in college. I’m pretty sure I never saw her eat an actual cookie, but we always had a bowl of her {eggless} chocolate chip cookie dough in the fridge. Thank you Michelle! xo

Second, to my friend Gretchen who inspired me with her drool worthy rendition of this Grain Free Rocky Road Cookie Dough that I’ve been lusting after ever since I saw it on Pinterest. According to Gretchen, edible cookie dough is “a thing”, as in there is an entire cookie dough shop in NYC devoted to it. Seriously. Only in New York. Thank you Gretchen! xo

Chocolate Cookie Dough

Third, to my friend Liz who also inspired me with her luscious Chocolate Ice Cream Cake made with one of my favorite healthy frozen treats, Halo Top Ice Cream, plus her “secret ingredient”. Like Liz, I have a secret ingredient in my recipe too {wink, wink} Thank you Liz! xo

And, last, to the creators of The Recipe ReDux who challenged us to use 3-ingredients from our fridge or pantry for this month’s  challenge. I chose leftover pre-cooked lentils from Trader Joe’s {which I used to make this dip for a neighborhood cocktail party recently} + neufatchel cheese {I bought extra for this Overnight Orange-Blueberry Gluten Free French Toast Bake I made for dinner last night} + some Swerve sweetener I’ve had sitting in my pantry for, oh, a REALLY long time.

OK. If you’ve got 5 minutes to spare, plus all of these ingredients, let’s make some yummy edible cookie dough!

Empty bowl of chocolate.

What’s to Love About This Edible Cookie Dough + Ingredient/Tasting Notes

  • Made with one of my fave “secret ingredients”, lentils, this edible cookie dough contains 9 grams of protein and 7 grams of microbiome friendly fiber. And, I swear it doesn’t taste like lentils at all!
  • Swerve is a natural alternative to sugar containing erythritol, a sugar alcohol, and oligosaccharides that does not affect blood glucose or insulin levels, so it is a good option for diabetics or anyone else looking to cut back on added sugars. Although Swerve doesn’t seem to cause the same digestive intolerance as other pure sugar alcohols, I recommend my low FODMAP clients avoid it during the elimination phase of the diet.
  • The version made with Swerve will be a little thicker, like traditional cookie dough, than the version with maple syrup, which is more like a brownie batter consistency. If you want a firmer consistency, stick it in the freezer for a little while.
  • If you’re like me, and you enjoy “just a taste” of something sweet {on a daily basis!} you can shape the cookie dough into balls and freeze them for a tasty “cookie dough bite” treat!

  1. This looks fantastic! I’ve tried black bean brownies, but lentils are a new one with chocolate! You, Gretchen, and Sonali all better let me know when you’re coming to NY to go to the cookie dough shop – i’ll be right there with you!!

  2. This is SOOOO amazing! The photo of that empty bowl is on point! I would have never thought of lentils but boy oh boy now I want to try it!! And thanks so much for the shout out! I haven’t been to that shop in NYC but sounds like a visit is in order! Now, Netflix, I would have said the Good Wife but the ending made me so mad don’t even get hooked! Have you started Designated Survivor, that is a good one! Hope you have a nice weekend!

  3. So much to unpack here… first, thanks a million for the shout-out! You know I’ve always been such a fan and grateful for the the gluten-free RD comraderie! Second, lentils?! So brilliant… I’m so trying this. Now we only need 29 more flavors for our grain-free cookie dough baskin Robbins. Last, I just binged This Is Us. It was sweet, maybe slightly over-hyped but totally worth the watch, if you haven’t already!

    1. I think I just read you are moving. Oh, how I wish it were to San Diego so we could swap gluten free recipes, and open up a gluten free cookie dough store together! Thanks so much for the Netflix rec-I haven’t seen This is Us, so I’ll definitely check it out! xoxo
