Healthy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - Gluten-Free

It's no secret....I've been on a health kick.  I've been working my tail off to get in shape.  But, I'm human.....and PMSing.  And I needed chocolate darn-it!!!!  Actually, I wanted to eat a tube of cookie dough, but being that I'm gluten-free, that just wasn't possible.  (Not to mention how disappointed my trainer would be in me!!!!!) So, I hit my cupboard in search of ingredients that weren't awful for me, and wouldn't make me feel guilty!

My trainer Andrea posted a recipe for a healthy pancake.  Well, I didn't want a darn pancake.  I wanted dessert.  DESSERT, darn-it! (I really wanted to use the other word, but I'll keep this clean, LOL!) And not just any dessert, chocolate dessert!

So, I looked at her healthy suggestions and I went to my pantry!  Here's what I came out with........
Ground oats, cocoa powder, sugar in the raw, natural peanut butter, dark chocolate chips and natural applesauce from the fridge.

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm here to tell you these things all work together!  Beautifully actually!  It was not too sweet, but just sweet enough to curb my sweet tooth!  Best of all, I didn't feel at all guilty eating this.  Nope. Not ONE bit!  Oats are SO good for you!  For the tiny bit of sugar in the raw and natural peanut butter used, you don't have to feel like guilty either.  This cookie dough will do the trick, I promise!

So, what are you waiting for!  Go make yourself a bowl!  Add in cocount flakes or some slivered almonds for extra crunch if you like!  Make it your own decadent, guilt-free cookie dough!!!!

Servings: 1

1/2 cup oat flour
1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. sugar in the raw
1 Tbsp. natural peanut butter
3 Tbsp. natural applesauce
1-2 Tbsp. dark chocolate chips

In a bowl, place the oat flour, cocoa powder and sugar in the raw.

Add the peanut butter and applesauce.

Mix it up.

Add the chocolate chips and mix again.

Serve and ENJOY each and every DELICIOUS bite!!!
