Cottage Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Are you ready to indulge in a game-changing treat that will satisfy your sweet tooth and fuel your fitness goals?!

Meet our Protein-Packed Cottage Cheese Cookie Dough – a creamy, delicious, and ridiculously EASY twist on traditional cookie dough. This guilt-free goodness is packed with the power of cottage cheese, protein powder, and wholesome whole-food ingredients to fuel your body and your taste buds.

A FUN substitute for your regular ole’ protein shakes. It’s a sweet treat that will make you feel like you’re eating a spoonful of homemade cookie dough (but with an added boost of protein and far less sugar).

I love including protein and healthy fat in our snacks, treats, and desserts because both protein and fat are very satisfying macronutrients. When we feel nicely satisfied, we’re less likely to overeat.

Make a batch and set it in the fridge for dessert tonight!

Our Cottage Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough makes for an AWESOME after-school or after-workout treat too!

-> I used “Just Ingredients” protein powder in vanilla flavor for this cookie dough.

Why is the Just Ingredients Protein Powder & collagen our FAVORITE option?

The protein comes from 5 sources: 100% super high-quality grass-fed whey, pea protein, pumpkin seed, chia seeds and collagen.

There is a lot less whey compared to normal protein powders so it may be easier on the stomach than other protein powders!
Free from sugar, gluten, artificial sweeteners or any artificial ingredients.

⁉️What do YOU think about COTTAGE CHEESE?

It’s one of those “love it or hate it” kinds of foods.

It’s been up and down the food popularity scale … but it’s always held a top spot on many “healthy foods” lists.

It’s low in calories and fat, high in protein, packed with calcium, and full of nutrients.

It’s also a solid source of vitamin B12, selenium, riboflavin, phosphorus, and folate.

✅FUN FACT: Nearly 70% of the calories in cottage cheese come from the casein protein, which includes all of the essential amino acids the body needs for muscle growth & repair.

Plus, it’s slow to digest, so it can keep you feeling full for hours after you eat.

It’s also versatile – eaten alone, with fruit and nuts as a snack, or in recipes.

😊 Many varieties also contain gut-friendly probiotics. Be sure to check the label. My ABSOLUTE favorite brands are

“Nancy’s Organic” and “Good Culture”.

👀 Other things to look for on the label: If possible, choose an organic brand from grass-fed cows, with few added  ingredients.




When shopping for ingredients:

Look for a higher percentage of cacao for the chocolate chips, and always read the ingredients.

There are always lots of questions about chocolate brands – I like to visit the specialty (nicer) chocolate section at the stores and find a really high quality, (often organic) dark chocolate bar on SALE – so I’m often trying something different because the sales dictate my purchase.

🍫A high-quality dark chocolate bar works great too! I’ll often find a beautiful organic dark chocolate bar on sale, then chop it up to use for things like this.

I like to buy the highest quality I can find when it’s on SALE! I’m always keeping an eye out for a good deal and will often stock up when a high-quality product is on special.

Use any dark chocolate chips of your choice: the higher cacao percentage = more health benefits.

🍯 The sweetness factor is such a PERSONAL preference, so please consider this when adding in raw honey, or maple syrup. Depending on your taste, you may want a bit more or less.

4 servings


  • 8 oz cottage cheese
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsps raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 servings vanilla protein powder
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chunks or chips


Using a high-speed blender or food processor add in your cottage cheese, vanilla, and honey.

Process until smooth.

Add the almond flour and protein powder. Pulse just to blend, scraping the sides as needed, until well combined.

Fold in your chocolate chips and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, to allow the flavors to combine.
