So obviously I am a huge sucker for a good cookie recipe LOL. Cookies and brownies are my weakness, but I never feel guilty for indulging because I love coming up with fun, healthy alternatives to all of my favourite treats!
Here's the recipe that many of you saw on my Instagram today.
(Note: I measured each ingredient in grams so that I could calculate the macros for each cookie. If you don't have a food scale, this may be more difficult to make).
100g coconut oil
80g coconut flour
95g all purpose gluten free flour
46g brown sugar (or coconut sugar)
82g chocolate chips
110g eggs (2 eggs)
58g almond butter
70g E.D Smith no sugar added maple syrup
120g Vega Sport Vanilla Protein powder (2 tightly packed scoops) NOTE: you must use a vegan protein powder for this recipe or else the texture and consistency will not work
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix wet ingredients separately from dry ingredients in 2 large bowls.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients once both have been mixed. Note: the coconut oil should be melted before mixing with the wet ingredients.
Mix the batter with a spoon and then your hands. When rolling them into golf ball sized balls, you will have to squeeze and tightly pack the batter to form balls.
Spread evenly on a greased baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
Makes 12-14 cookies
