10 Recipes to Whip Up When You’re Craving Cookie Dough for Breakfast

Hi, friends! Founder Nikki Azzara here. I originally created this chickpea-based cookie dough in college so I could enjoy a healthier version of my favorite nostalgic treat (my mom's blondies!). Now, more than ever, we're turning to our favorite comfort foods during this period of uncertainty. I hope this cookie dough brings you as much joy and comfort as it does for me!

Let's face it -- this is a strange time. I am currently in Denver working from home (happy first day of Spring — it’s snowing here), with limited to no access to friends, family and P.S. Snacks teammates. Work priorities have shifted, meetings and trips have been cancelled, and our growth plans halted...we are living a new normal for the time being, trying to stay nimble as a small business and adapt to the circumstances. I am incredibly grateful for the continued support as we navigate these challenges, and even more thankful for the individuals that enable our cookie dough to be accessible in stores and online. I find solace in the fact that we are all in this together, and know that this, too, shall pass!

I intentionally created this nutrient dense cookie dough for anytime-of-day “indulging.” My goal was to make eating cookie dough for breakfast socially acceptable, through the thoughtful selection of our ingredients, nutrition profile and portion size. Problem solved. So if you're waking up like me, wondering what day it is and when we can go back to "business as usual"... sit back, relax and enjoy #cookiedoughforbreakfast. I sure am :)

Sending love, health & hugs. -- Nikki

P.S. For most of these recipes, if you don't have dough on hand you can use almond/peanut butter instead! And vice versa... use cookie dough to replace nut butter in any of your favorite no-bake recipes.
