Peanut Butter Cottage Cheese Cookie Dough Recipe Notes:
Almond and Oat Flours: Using a combination of almond flour and oat flour not only provides a pleasant texture but also ensures that this cookie dough is gluten-free. Make your own oat flour by grinding rolled oats in a blender or food processor until finely ground.
Protein Powder: The recipe calls for vanilla protein powder, but you can customize this based on your preferences. If you don’t have protein powder on hand, you can replace it with more almond or oat flour without affecting the overall taste.
Chocolate Chips: You can use any type of chocolate chips you prefer, whether it’s semi-sweet, dark chocolate, or dairy-free chocolate chips to keep the recipe dairy-free.
Customization: Feel free to get creative with this recipe by adding your favorite mix-ins, such as dried fruits, shredded coconut, or crushed pretzels, to make your own unique version of edible cookie dough.
