The bestie asked so I made her the healthiest cookie butter ever. Have you tried the Biscoff Cookie Butter or even from the one from Trader Joes? Gee’s they are so good but so full of sugar. I did my research and it’s condensed milk that gives it that creamy texture.
I did some looking around at some healthy recipes for cookie butter, but all of them were really nut butters with spices. None of them were made from a cookie, which is what I wanted to stick to.
Enter Simple Mills Cinnamon Cookies (this post is not sponsored. I just love them lots). I saw them at the store and my mind just started working overdrive. All I needed to add was the additional spices, but then what could I add that would give it the creamy texture without using condensed milk. The answer was dates. Dates soaked in boiling water to soften them up. Ding. Ding. Ding.
Oh and to make it even better I added some collagen. I know. You love me now. Here is the recipe.
That looks absolutely wicked, yet I know it is made with good stuff. I love this recipe.
Only the good stuff!!!
Collagen peptides, I’ve just started hearing talk of these but never in cooking. I thought this was apple butter at first. Going to have to try this. 😉
I put it in my jams and ice creams and even cakes. My mom just started using it 2 weeks ago and she has had dry eyes for most of her adult life and since then it has cleared up. For me it helped me grow hair back I lost from pregnancy.
I love cookie butter but it’s so bad because if I get that Biscoff stuff, I’ll eat the whole container in a few days! This looks like a delicious alternative. I’ll be trying it this weekend!
Right! Biscoff is so good yet evil. Hope you do get to try it!!
Cookie butter, this one looks delicious!!! I love that you have used Dates, I’m going to try this 🙂
It’s a better alternative to condensed milk!
I have never tried cookie butter, but by the sounds of it….I know my husband would go crazy over this. I think I need to give this a try….and probably hide it I intend to get some.
Let me know if you do try it Gloria!
I hate to admit this but sometimes I eat cookie butter with just a spoon right out of the jar. I can’t wait to give yours a try and indulge without all that sugar.
haha! No guilt treats is what I’m all about!
Cookie butter does sound interesting and I’m sure its delicious. I’m all for trying new things, of which this will be one of them.
What an amazing idea to use dates instead of condensed milk! I love it, but it gives me the worst heartburn on earth!
I can never get past not being a big fan of cinnamon. Do you think it would work without it? Or maybe less?
probably not as it’s key in cookie butter.
Wow looks healthy and indulging at the same time! I’ve never tried anything with collagen before… gonna have to look around for this! Yum!
you should look it up. It’s so helpful esp with my aging body! haha.
Wow, what a great idea to make a healthier cookie butter and I love how you use dates to replace the sugar. I bet it’s delicious, I don’t think it would last a week in our house!
It’s so good I made two jars and one is gone already….
I had never heard of cookie butter before reading this post, but it sounds delicious! Thank you for coming up with such a healthy, refined-sugar free alternative.
This cookie butter looks AMAZING! I could probably eat the whole jar! I love the color too!
This cookie butter is making my mouth water like crazy! I love that you use collagen peptides in there.
Oh yummy. Cookies Butter is my weakness this being healthier that the normal kind makes this even better.
I don’t eat many treats, but when I do, I can get behind treats with redeeming qualities! Your photos are beautiful!
