  1. Hey Lauren! I can’t wait to try this recipe! And then I’ll try to transition my cookie dough loving husband…into loving it too. He has Crohn’s Disease and opted for the drugs. So I found you and transformed my cooking. Thank you so much for finding your calling!

  2. This cookie dough sounds wonderful. I am new to your site and very grateful for your posts. What would you recommend for vegans as a substitute for the collagen? I know I could use a vegan protein powder and I am worried the flavor of of the protein powder would overwhelm the other ingredients. I also would prefer to use a real food or product over the powder.
    Thank you.

  3. Hi Lauren,
    Just wanted to share with you, that for those of us who must stay away from almost all sugar sources, Lily’s chocolate chips are awesome and are made with organic Stevia!! Plus they are free of everything else too!

  4. I saw that a couple of other people asked but I couldn’t find the answer…Can you use regular sweet potatoes? Where I live, I don’t think I’ll ever have access to Japanese sweet potatoes.
