cookie dough for breakfast

life has been good (without the reoccurring thoughts of the fact that school is fast-approaching). i've truly enjoyed this summer. the trips i've taken, the food i've eaten, the things i've maken– i mean made.

i think that this is the best summer i've ever had. and that's really saying a lot.

i woke up this morning craving cookie dough. simple enough, right? you just sporadically get those aches for that buttery, chocolate-y goodness that can at times make your stomach hurt from the raw egg. 

but cookie dough? in bar form? without making your stomach hurt? ha, i have the perfect recipe for you. 

while not the healthiest of recipes i have created, it's most definitely one of my most beautiful works.

trust me on this one, you most definitely don't want to skimp out on these + they're no bake HA!


01. combine flour, salt and sugar in a bowl

02. melt coconut oil and combine with almond butter, almond milk, and vanilla extract

03. pour wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix (with hands, if necessary) until dough is formed

04. mix in chocolate chips and chopped squarebars

05. press into tin (or roll out until 1/2" thick) and refrigerate for 3+ hours

06. cut into squares/bars and keep refrigerated


1 1/2 cups AP flour

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1 tablespoon almond butter

3 tablespoons almond milk

hello, my name is julianna and i run a little lifestyle + fashion blog called bursts of beauty. izzy and i have known each other for a very long time, so when she visited los angeles, it was only appropiate to share a day together. we dined at gracias madre, a wonderful vegan mexican restaurant in west hollywood and sipped on some iced lattes and green juice at alfred coffee. there, i proposed the idea of baking together. when we got back, we did some research and found a great recipe for oatmeal + chocolate cookies and made a few twists.


       flourless almond butter cookies

2 tbsp flax seeds

5 tbsp water


2/3 cup rolled oats

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup almond butter

1/2 cup peanut butter

2/3 cup turbinado/brown sugar

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup almond milk


2/3 cup dark chocolate chips

1/3 cup dried cherries


1/ preheat oven to 350F

2/ whisk together flax seeds and water (this makes 2 vegan eggs)

3/ line a baking sheet w/ parchment paper or non-stick spray of your choice

4/ in medium bowl, combine oats, baking soda, and salt

5/ in another bowl, combine almond butter, peanut butter, sugar, almond milk, vanilla extract, and vegan "eggs". use a handmixer to mix until smooth

6/ pour wet with dry and stir until the mixture becomes like a cookie dough. if too wet, add more oats. if too dry, add more almond milk

7/ stir in chocolate chips + cherries

8/ roll a small amount of dough into a ball shape and place in a row of three on the baking sheet. spread the cookie dough balls out so they won't combine when baked in the oven

9/ bake for 9-11 minutes. let cookies cool before removing from the baking sheet

10/ enjoy!
