Cookie butter, YUM!!! You could also call it protein fluff, or protein frosting. Whatever you want to call it, it’s a sweet, delicious spread that will help you hit your macros and make you smile at the same time. :) This cookie butter recipe is super versatile! Pimp out your rice cake, add some to your oatmeal, or top your favorite pint of macro-friendly ice cream. Please tag me, @lafemmevegan in your posts so I can see what you come up with.

At first, I just smeared some on one of these vegan-friendly dark chocolate rice cakes I found at Sprouts market (which totally taste like cookies, fyi) and sprinkled it with some nibs - Cool! But mashing two together to create the ultimate cookie sandwich - Genius!!

There are a few different ways that you can make this recipe. If you’re feeling lazy and not as concerned with macros, you could just create the protein mixture using a vegan yogurt. I like to make my own Greek-style yogurt with tofu, or make a low-carb tofu pudding. Either one of these options will give you more protein and less sugar.

To make tofu pudding, blend 1 block of firm tofu (including the water in the packaging with 1 small box of Sugar Free Fat Free Jello pudding mix. Double check the ingredient label, but most of the sugar free, fat free Jello brand flavors are #accidentlyvegan It sets in just 30 minutes in the refrigerator and the texture is exactly like the pudding cups you might remember from childhood - brilliant!!

I love making this in so many flavors! For this recipe, I just made vanilla so it wouldn’t mask the awesome flavor of Tru Supplements Mint Chocolate Chip protein powder. It’s one of my favorites from this vegan-friendly line! If you decide to try this recipe, use my code LFV15 to save 15% off your order. I measured the exact amount of pudding I needed to make the cookie butter. Then stashed the rest in an airtight container in the fridge for a high-protein, low-carb treat to enjoy later.

If artificial pudding mix really isn’t your thing, you can make your own Greek-style, dairy-free yogurt by blending a block of firm tofu (again, including the water in the packaging) with 1 tsp of vanilla extract and 2 tsp of stevia. This is another simple recipe that makes a great snack all on it’s own. So having the leftovers after you use what you need to make your cookie butter is great!


Ingredients:

  • 30g Tru Supplements Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie protein powder

  • 10g Coconut Flour

  • 85g tofu yogurt or tofu pudding

  • 60ml water

    Makes 3 servings

    Macros 1 serving 10p/2f/4c

To make this cookie butter sandwich:

  • Double serving of cookie butter

  • 5g Cocoa nibs or Enjoy mini chocolate chips

  • Dark Chocolate Covered rice cakes

    1 sandwich 22p/13f/29

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth. The mixture will set fairly quickly. Especially if you use the pudding since it’s a bit thicker. Place it in the freezer to set fast - 10-15min, or in the refrigerator for 30min. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.
