Sprinkle protein cookies.
I was looking for a sweet little cookie present for a friend’s daughter who broke very recently. I was flipping through Arman Lieu’s cookbook and I found this recipe. It was perfect. It made about 10 mini cookies that I decorated with fun heart sprinkles and they’re perfect. You an easily make this recipe into 2 larger cookies or several minis. Fun but so healthy and packed with protein! 34 grams of protein in this serving (serves 1), 20 grams of fat and 11 grams of fiber. I also wanted to test out the Nuzest protein I received. The vanilla worked perfectly!
Well happy Monday & let’s get this started 🙂
1 packet of protein powder (vanilla) or 1 scoop if you have a larger container
3 tbl of coconut flour, sifted
1/4 tsp of salt
2 tbl nut butter (I used almond, creamy)
1 tbl maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tbl of nut based milk, as needed
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line your baking pan with parchment or a silpat liner. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients and blend together. In a small bowl, blend nut butter, syrup and vanilla. Microwave or heat on the stove until melted completely. Stir that into your dry mixture and add your nut-based milk. I started with 2 tbl and blend. I needed additional milk to loosen up the batter a bit. I ended up using 3 tbl total. The batter is heavier and shouldn’t be liquified but look like cookie dough. Scoop out and place on your prepared pan. If you wish, add some sprinkles on top if you wish. Press them in if you chose to use them. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove and let cook then serve or package up.
