I’m guessing if you read the title of this post then you know exactly what it’s going to be about. Today I just want to give a little shoutout the joy of eating raw cookie dough. Yum!
Now, you might be wondering why, on a blog that frequently mentions diet, healthy choices, and Weight Watchers, would I be mentioning cookie dough? Well, it’s simple really. Healthy living is a lifestyle. In order to sustain said healthy lifestyle, in my opinion, no foods should be deemed “off limits.” Have you noticed that once you tell yourself you can’t have something, you pretty much only think about that thing?
This diva loves to talk about things she thinks are divine (hence, part of the reason my blog’s name is what it is), and lets be honest, sticking your finger in the bowl (or tube, or bag) of raw cookie dough is a pretty deliciously decadent feeling thing. Therefore, I fully endorse a spoonful of cookie dough every so often. It’s good for the soul 🙂
That being said, there’s also that whole raw egg thing. That’s where Edoughable comes in. I accidentally stumbled upon this company while I was browsing the internet. Edoughable makes egg-free cookie dough, meaning this dough is not meant to baked, it’s meant to be eaten raw. It seriously says not to bake their dough right on the website. Grab a spoon or use your finger and dive right in.
While the Weight Watcher in me went “oh dear..,” the sweet tooth said “oh yes!” and I knew I had to get my hands on some of this dough. With flavors ranging from chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin to s’mores and cookies and cream, and even seasonal offerings like lemon pie and red velvet, I had a hard time figuring out which ones to try. The answer is obviously ALL of them, but I couldn’t afford that, as they are a bit pricy ($8-$10 per 8 oz tub).
I ended up getting the Gimme 5 Gift Box, which contained 5-4oz tubs of their most popular flavors. Every single one of them is a divine bite of cookie dough Heaven. I reached out to the company to see if there was any nutrition information available for the products, as there is none on labels. The amazing owner responded, sending me the nutrition info for the 3 flavors they had analyzed (Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Chip, and Birthday cake). Apparently having a food product’s nutrition info analyzed costs a pretty penny, so she only had a few done. Because Edoughble is a small business, I totally understand.
The nutrition info turned out to be pretty universal for all 3: 1 serving is 120-130 calories, 6-7 g fat, 18 carbs, 1g protein, and <1g fiber. So 4 Points Plus for a 28 g serving. I weighed that out, and it’s a decent chunk of dough.
It’s really easy to store this cookie dough, too. It can sit at room temperature for 4 weeks, be refrigerated for 4 months, or frozen for 8 months. With an outstanding list of flavors, gift options, and even monthly dough club, every cookie dough lover can find a little something to sink their spoon into at Edoughble. Since I don’t believe in deprivation, and everything in moderation, this indulgence is 100% Diva and the Divine approved!
