Who would have ever thought that all those years eating cookie dough from the bowl as a kid I would still be eating cookie dough well into my adult years! Maybe not the same version but this protein-packed edible cookie dough recipe tastes almost too good to be healthy!

And… you only need a bowl, spoon and a handful of ingredients! A satisfying snack made in about 2 minutes! Hell ya!

For this recipe, I like to use Naked Casein because it is well… naked! No additives, no artificial sweeteners just 1 ingredient – Micellar Casein! And because this protein powder is so clean it is almost flavourless which makes it so easy to use in recipes like this high protein edible cookie dough for one.

What is micellar Casein powder?

Casein is a slow-digesting protein that helps you stay full longer. When taken before bed, casein protein supports the muscle recovery process throughout the night. Naked Casein has only one ingredient: Micellar casein sourced from US dairy farms.

Micellar casein is a complete protein and the purest form of casein protein with having the least amount of processing. Its slow digestion process helps sustain energy but also provides a slow-release of all essential amino acids to repair and build muscle tissue throughout the day or during rest.

What is the difference between casein & Whey?

Casein and whey are proteins are both by-products of cheese production, but they offer different benefits. Whey is a fast-absorbing protein that is ideal to consume just after a workout to fuel your body with quick protein. Casein is a slow-absorbing protein that is better for consuming before bed to gradually provide your body with amino acids. Mid-afternoon is also a great time to consume it because it gives you a steady source of energy to get you through to the end and over the mid-day slump.

    1. I store it in the fridge for leftovers just because it uses a dairy-based protein powder and once mixed with liquid becomes activated.

  1. I was so excited to tried this recipe. When I did, I was disappointed. Instead of protien cookie dough, I was left with the taste of powdery peanut butter. Didn’t taste like dough to me.

    1. So sorry this recipe didn’t turn out for you. Were you using the Naked Casien? If not you may need to add more water to get the moisture level you would like. Since other protein powders may be different or the scoops larger more water may be needed.
