What was Beethoven’s favourite fruit? Ba-na-na!!
Well, I thought it was funny…
Anyways! So you want some cookie dough right? That’s why you searched healthy cookie dough recipe? Well, I believe we have all done that at least a dozen times. Hoping to find something that satisfies our sweet tooth without going overboard or making us feel too guilty for eating a bowl of sweet chunky goodness.
That is what I have made for you today. This recipe is very flexible so the measurements are not set in stone.
Beethoven Cookie Dough
- 1 1/2 Cup of rolled oats
- 1 banana
- Cold pressed Virgin Coconut oil (around a tablespoon)
- Natural organic Honey to texture and taste (around a tablespoon)
- Vanilla (optional) to taste
- Dark chocolate chips/nuts or seeds (Your choice)
- Put rolled oats in a blender and blend until it is finely chopped. Transfer to a small mixing bowl and mash banana in with the oats.
- Melt honey in a mug in the microwave. If you want the sweeter taste, add more honey.
- Add coconut oil. doesn’t need to be melted as it acts as the butter in the recipe and adds to the thickening texture of the dough.
- Add chips or nuts to your own liking and mix it up until that nice sight of lovely dough waiting to be scooped and consumed.
As said before! These are rough estimates for measurements. When I first made this recipe I didn’t measure the oats. I played it by sight and to how much resembled normal cookie dough.
Banana’s have lots of vitamins and fibre in them that aid in heart, gut and brain health. And as the good Doctor says “Good Source of potassium!” which helps regulate fluids in all of your cells and tissues.
Oats are filling, and a good source of energy, fibre, and are good for your cholesterol (raising HDL). Oats are rich in antioxidants that help keep your very smallest cells protected.
Coconut oil is the new trend and joke of the health world but it is actually a fabulous MCFA (medium-chained fatty acid) which helps lower bad cholesterol while also acting as a strong virus destroyer and antibacterial substance.
Honey (besides its lovely taste) is also antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and good anti-oxidants. Especially when it is in its most natural purest form with no other artificial sweeteners or chemicals added to it.
