Skinny Snacks // Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies

Confession... I. Love. Cookies! But obviously eating cookies all the time won't allow me to be in shape. Why can't we have the best of both worlds? A yummy, chocolatey snack after lunch to satisfy your sweet tooth without completely ruining your healthy eating habits. DONE!



Feel free to substitute your favorites in this recipe, just make sure your batter in no more than 1/8 protein powder or they will have a weird rubbery, bread-like texture.

Ingredients:

§  1 large egg
§  1/2 cup of chocolate protein powder
§  1/4 cup of oat flour (I make my oat flour at home by putting old-fashioned oats in the blender)
§  1/2 tsp of baking soda
§  1/4 cup of flaked coconut
§  1/4 cup of almond milk
§  10 ground almonds

§  1/8 cup sugar-free dark chocolate chips

Directions:

1.      Preheat oven to 340 F
2.      Mix together egg, protein powder, oat flour, baking soda, coconut,almond milk, and ground almonds.
3.      Once dough is formed, stir in chocolate chips.
4.      Using a spoon, divide mixture into 12 cookies and place on a sprayed cookie sheet.
5.      Put in oven for 15-20 minutes.
6.      Remove them from the oven as soon as they cook through. It's good if they're a bit soft in the center. Make sure you don't overcook them because they'll dry up and lose their charm if you do.

***To make lower-calorie and lower-fat cookies: use oats instead of flaked coconut and cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips.
