It’s time to get rid of your hidden chocolate chip cookie stash and enter the world of tasty protein-powerhouse snacks!
- 1.5 cups of shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
- ½ cup of chopped natural, unsalted almonds
- ½ cup of high-quality protein powder (you can also use a flavored one)
- 1/4 cup of raw organic honey
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1/8 cup of water
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Place all ingredients into a large bowl and stir well until you get an even mixture.
If you notice that the mixture is too crumbly, add in another tablespoon of coconut oil or a few ounces of water. If you think it’s too watery, add a bit more protein powder.
Scoop cookies onto a parchment-lined baking sheet using a regular spoon and place them in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Optionally you can make some filling for the cookies by whipping a cup of cream and adding a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder in it.
This will make the coconut cookies even higher in protein content.
Enjoy your healthy snack !
