I’m a sucker for single serving recipes.
…especially when they include two of the best words in the English language: COOKIE. DOUGH.
Needless to say, when I saw this healthier single serving recipe for vegan cookie dough on Pinterest, I knew it was one I had to try.
I made some changes to that recipe because a) I didn’t have coconut oil and b) I wanted to see how it would taste with almond flour. The result was not only delicious, but also gluten free.
adapted from Vegan Cookie Dough For One
- 1 tablespoon real maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons almond flour
- pinch of salt
- 1-2 teaspoons dark chocolate chips (make sure non-dairy if strictly vegan)
Just mix the first four ingredients in a small bowl, then add the chocolate chips last. That’s it!
I was planning on using some almond milk to replace the coconut oil, but it actually didn’t need it. The almond flour soaked the maple syrup up for a perfect cookie dough consistency.
I would like to try the original recipe too, which uses regular flour, but I must say I really did love the flavor and heartiness from the almond flour. The only thing I’d say I didn’t like about this recipe is that…it didn’t make enough! Seriously, I might double it next time
Are you a fan of single serving recipes? Do you have a favorite? (I’d love suggestions!)
