how to make it:

creating this cookie dough treat is easier than you think.

add dairy-free milk to achieve the perfect texture.

fold in some unsweetened chocolate chips for an extra burst of flavor. voila!

options to explore:

while this recipe is already a winner, there’s always room for experimentation.

feel free to customize your brownie batter cookie dough by adding chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or a hint of espresso powder for a mocha twist.

you can also adjust the sweetness level by adding more or less medjool dates or incorporating a drizzle of maple syrup.

not only is this brownie batter cookie dough a treat, but it’s also a nutritional powerhouse.

packed with protein from the protein powder and almond butter, it’s perfect for refueling after a workout or as a satisfying snack to keep you energized throughout the day.

medjool dates provide natural sweetness along with fiber, vitamins, and minerals, while cocoa powder adds antioxidants and a rich chocolatey flavor.

plus, with unsweetened chocolate chips, you get all the indulgence without the added sugar.

storage tips:

if you manage to resist devouring the entire batch in one sitting (trust us, it’s hard!), you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

alternatively, you can freeze portions of the brownie batter cookie dough for longer-term storage.

Five Minute Brownie Batter Protein Cookie Dough (Date Sweetened)!

Recipe by MaryCourse: Desserts, Snacks, Sweet


Prep time



serving size is a couple tbsp


  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates, soaked in warm water for 10 minutes and drained
    1/3 cup cocoa powder
    1/2 cup vanilla or chocolate protein powder
    1/4 cup almond butter
    1/4-1/3 cup dairy-free milk (such as almond milk or coconut milk), as needed
    Pinch of salt (optional, to enhance flavor)
    1/3 cup unsweetened chocolate chips


  • prepare the dates: unless dates are soft and mushy, soak them in warm water for 10 minutes.

  • blend ingredients: in a food processor, combine the soaked dates, cocoa powder, protein powder, almond butter, and a pinch of salt (if using). pulse or blend until the mixture starts to come together.

  • add dairy-free milk: gradually add dairy-free milk, either 1/4 or 1/3 cup depending on the moisture content of the dates and the desired consistency.

  • adjust consistency: if the mixture is too dry or crumbly, add a touch more dairy-free milk. if it’s too wet, add a bit more cocoa powder or protein powder to balance it out.

  • add chocolate chips: fold in the unsweetened chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

  • serve: once you’ve reached your desired consistency and flavor, transfer the protein brownie batter cookie dough to a bowl. you can enjoy it immediately or chill it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to firm up slightly before serving.

  • enjoy: scoop the protein brownie batter cookie dough into small portions and enjoy it as a delicious and nutritious treat! you can also use it as a dip for fruit, spread it on toast, or roll it into balls for convenient snacking.

  1. Just made the Five Minute Brownie Batter Protein Dough. It is SO good & so easy to make. I didn’t even add the chocolate chips, just some chopped walnuts. Delicious!

  2. How can I make this without protein powder? I love your recipes but don’t use protein powder. Is there a blanket replacement?

    1. hi! you can try oat flour but there will be less flavor and sweetness! you also may have to adjust the amounts 🙂

  3. This is so good! I used peanut butter protein powder & sugar free peanut butter chips.. OMG! I’m going to make a batch during meal prep just to keep in my fridge every week.. works to keep that sugar craving at bay and it only take a little to satisfy my chocolate need.
