"NOT" cookie dough

Let me just say I have a love affair with cookie dough. I honestly make it once a week, for whatever reason I just crave this evil goodness. It is really bad because when I make it I seriously eat 3 HUGE scoops of cookie dough and then a cookie when it comes out of the oven. I have a problem BUT I have found an answer to my issue. On Tuesday like so many of you I link up and read recipes at the Tasty Tuesday Party and I this where I found it. FAUX COOKIE DOUGH!!! Before I go on and on about how good this is I must give credit to Dream in Domestic. I was so happy to know that I had all the ingredients at home and of course I was craving cookie dough because I have a problem!! Now let me tell you there is nothing that will ever replace the taste of uncooked batter. But I made this last night and I immediately told my husband, it is just what I need. Everything in it is healthy and there is nothing that will break the calorie bank. So here is the recipe, it worked to curb the carving and I will totally be making this again. I can not tell you enough how excited I am about this odd, awesome recipe. Thank You Dream in Domestic, you have saved my butt and favorite jeans!!

1 tablespoon of peanut butter
1 banana, mashed
1/3 cup of rolled, old fashion oats (not instant oats)
A sprinkle of cinnamon
2 tablespoons of wheat germ
You can add some raisins, but you could leave them out or add chocolate chips or any other small sweet treat.

Mash the banana, add peanut butter, oats and cinnamon. Mix until combined and creamy. If you want you can add the raisins or choc chips. Form into balls and sprinkle wheat germ on them. Eat and enjoy these awesome pieces of FAUX HEAVEN. :)

  1. Wow, that actually does sound amazing! Who would have thought?! Clearly she is a desperate woman too! hahaha

  2. I am going to have to try this! Yum!

  4. I've been eating something similar for a long time - start with a base of peanut butter and add any of the following:
    cocoa powder
    coconut flakes
    chia seed
    wheat germ

    A banana is a good idea; I hadn't tried that. The peanut butter-cocoa powder-honey-vanilla combo has staved off many a chocolate craving!


Thanks for visiting!
