Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Cottage Cheese Cookie Dough. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

I used a low-fat cottage cheese for this recipe, but you can use any kind that you prefer!

Almond flour helps to add texture to this cookie dough while keeping is completely grain and gluten free. I have not tested it with other flours, although i’m sure oat flour will work great too. Otherwise, you can leave it out and just add in more protein powder.

Use your favorite brand of vanilla protein powder. For this recipe I used the Vanilla protein powder from Amazing Grass which tasted great without any weird after taste.

To sweeten up this recipe slightly, use maple syrup which is my favorite sweetener because it’s all natural and refined sugar free. Alternatively you can use agave, honey or date syrup.

Vanilla extract is just an added touch of flavor that I highly recommend adding in, but can be skipped as well.

Use your favorite chocolate chips, I recommend using a version of mini chocolate chips and chocolate chunks so you have a bit in each bite.
