This recipe will share with you how to make bread, not just any simple bread recipe, but more specifically a Cookie Dough Bread recipe, which makes a beautiful moist cookie log. Bread has been a staple in humans diet since before 2500 BC when the Greeks were already producing 80 variations of bread. It was so important that the French King Louis IV said: "He who controls a nation’s bread is a greater ruler than he who controls their souls.” Wheat is easy to grow in mass quantities and is a very filling food source. There are so many things you can do with wheat as is evident when you look at the different ways cultures around the world make and eat their bread. Pitas, loafs, sweet bread, and naan are just of couple different mediums of eating wheat. This recipe is for indulging your sweet tooth and your carb craving! It is paired with another tried and true favourite, chocolate chip cookies.

Chocolate chip cookies originated in the states and are much younger than bread, by a couple of thousand years. They were invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield who owned an Inn in Massachusetts called the Toll House. She came out with a book of recipes, but her most famous that became a staple in homes was her recipe for chocolate chip cookies. This recipe for Cookie Dough Bread has simple ingredients and tools. A simple bread pan is your baking utensil, and a good one can be bought t the dollar store. The ingredients are not exotic and are already stuff usually found in a baker's home easily. Since this recipe is so calorie heavy, a couple of easy substations make it considerably lighter. Switching the white flour out for almond or whole wheat, aim to use brown sugar over white, and use Greek yogurt where it calls for sour cream. Carob chips also make a healthier alternative to chocolate chip cookies, but sometimes you just really need real chocolate chips. The recipe also calls for vanilla extract, but if you love the taste of almond try using almond extract for a small but flavorful change.

The glaze can easily be made healthier using a lighter variation of white sugar and again whatever kind of extract you favour for the flavour. Keeping this recipe exactly as it is from the Oh Bite It! blog would prove to be delicious and should probably be done that way to try it at least once. Its bread and cookie dough!
