Have you heard of the viral edible cottage cheese cookie dough? I had to make it and it was so good! It is made with cottage cheese as the main ingredient. Loaded with protein, and makes for a great snack or dessert.

Another edible cookie dough that is also healthy and made without cottage cheese is my healthy edible cookie dough recipe.

My Pro Tip

Recipe Tips

  • Depending on how much you blend the cottage cheese, I have noticed that you may need to add another 1/4 cup of almond flour or protein powder if the consistency of the dough is a bit too mushy.
  • You can store it in the fridge for a bit to set before serving.
  • I do not recommend freezing, but it stores well in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Frequently asked questions

How do you stiffen cookie dough?

If you cookie dough is too runny, add 1-2 tablespoons of whatever flour you are using at a time and mix until you get the consistency you are looking for.

Why is my cookie dough always runny?

If your cookie dough is too runny then you added too much liquid or in this case too much cottage cheese and not enough flour. Just add in more flour and mix again.

How do I get my cookies to be thicker?

You can either add in more flour or cover it and let it sit in the fridge for 30-45 minutes to settle in and absorb all the excess liquid.
