My name is Taylor and I blog over at foodfaithfitness.com!
I’m SUPER excited to be guest posting here on the FABULOUS “Cotter Crunch” while my BFF Lindsay is up to here eyeballs in moving boxes. I’ve moved about 29432 times in the past 3 years, so I know how NOT SO FUN moving is.
Which is why we are counteracting that NOTSOFUN-ness with a recipe that is jam-packed and totally LOADED with fun.
I mean. Cookie dough for breakfast? HOW CAN THAT BE NOT A GOOD TIME?
Exactly. It can’t.
True life confession time though: I really only made a recipe for cookie dough because I am not-at-all-secretly obsessed with it. I’ve shoved it into your hungry mouth’s in the form of a cookie dough ice cream recipe, vegan brownies stuffed with peanut butter cookie dough, cookie dough overnight oats and even a cookie dough almond butter recipe.
Something inside my soul tells me that I should call my blog “COOKIE DOUGH FOREVER AND EVER”
But I think that might be a just a LITTLE too limiting. I don’t think of any of your hungry bellies would continue rumbling if I served a steaming hot plate of cookie dough mango chicken with coconut cauliflower rice.
Because I am “THAT GIRL” who gets totally addicted to foods and eats them every single day forever, I also obsess over oatmeal breakfast bars: pumpkin oatmeal breakfast bars in the slow cooker or cacao peanut oatmeal breakfast bars with banana, don’t care what kind. Just want to stuff them in my HANGRY morning-person mouth STAT.
You get it. I know this is your life too. I can feel it.
It was obviously only a matter of time before – BOOM – the 2 magical things that I <3 <3 <3 would be smushed together in what can only be called the most perfect of food marriages, and the ULTIMATE way to make yourself roll of out bed.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: will wake up for dessert.
X-CEPT “dessert” is actually secretly healthy, vegan-friendly, gluten free and boasting a HEAVY hit of real food goodness.
With a HUGE scoop of yumminess RIGHT ON TOP.
SRSLY. Breakfast Nirvana. It has arrived and it’s pulling up a seat at your table.
Whether you share your coffee is up to you.
I’m voting no on that because #SharingProblems and #CoffeeAddicted.
In other news, do you not love how chickpeas make the most gloriously creamy cookie dough without the need for flours, butters or generally any not-so-good-for-you ingredients? Plus, THE PROTEIN BOOST.
Whoever said you can’t grow big muscles and eat your cookie dough too had it SRSLY wrong.
But what is NOT wrong, is the choice to mow down on approximately 6 soft, chewy, cinnamony-sweet squares of breakfast B-L-I-S-S tomorrow morning.
Okay okay, I’ll get to the recipe. Ready to make some dessert for breakfast? Yessssss!
