This protein cookie recipe will amaze you, all you need is a few basic ingredients and delicious protein cookies will materialize before you, just like that. Protein wizardry at it’s finest!
Lets cut to the chase:
1/4 cup of vanilla or unflavoured whey protein powder
2 tbsp (15 grams each) peanut butter
1 tbsp agave, or honey
1/8 cup almond milk
1 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 cup of ground almonds
1 tbsp orange zest or orange essence (optional – but delicious!)
1. Get a bowl out and chuck all the above ingredients in there. (Feel free to also add any walnuts or chocolate chips in there!)
2. Mix everything together until you get a soft cookie dough you can roll into balls with your hands. Feel free to sample the cookie dough but BE WARNED: IT IS REALLY GOOD! So many sure you are in a position to mobilize self-control, otherwise you’ll just eat the whole thing.
3. Place on a cookie tray and flatten each ball using your fingers, a fork, or a cookie stamp.
4. Bake at 170 C (320 F) for 6-10 minutes or until they’re cooked through but aren’t rock hard. This is REALLY important – you don’t want to end up with cookie-breads here: you want soft and crunchy cookies. So pay attention not to overbake them.
