If you ask any of us what our favorite cookie to make for our friends and family no matter the occasion, it is without a doubt our flourless monster cookies. Since developing that recipe, we’ve created monster cookie oat cups and monster cookie bars. So this protein monster cookie dough felt like the perfect addition.

Best part about this recipe? It tastes JUST LIKE monster cookie dough without worrying about eating raw eggs. And you can eat it right out of the food processor — trust us, we have 😀

Garbanzo Beans: garbanzo beans are high in fiber and protein. The perfect base for this edible cookie dough!

Oats: we recommend using quick-cooking oats, but rolled oats work, too.

Peanut Butter: peanut butter is traditionally used in monster cookies, and we love the flavor it adds to this cookie dough.

Maple: we like to use maple because it’s an all-natural sweetener, and provides rich and warm flavor.

Vanilla Extract: vanilla is another flavor that helps make these taste like cookie dough.

Mini Chocolate Chips: every cookie dough bite deserves chocolate chips!

Mini M&Ms: it’s not a monster cookie without m&ms and this cookie dough is no different 😀

Choosing the Best Food Processor

Making this edible cookie dough is rather simple and requires one important piece of equipment…a food processor!

Make sure you are using a high-powered food processor that has sharp blades, sharp enough to pulverize garbanzo beans and turn rolled oats into oat flour, giving you the creamy texture that makes this monster cookie dough creamy and smooth.

Here are a few food processor suggestions in different prices ranges that we recommend from our experience:
