Healthy Protein Cookies!
Gluten free, low fat, and made without flour.
I got the recipe from my girl Breann Mitchell and made just a few swaps for what I had in my pantry.
Preheat oven to 350.
5 scoops Protein Powder (plain or vanilla)
3 cups Gluten Free oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
4 egg whites (let eggs sit out to room temp for best results)
1 cup Greek yogurt
1 cup Organic Maple Syrup (I used Grade B)
3 TBSP coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
Optional: 1/2 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips or chunks
*I used all organic ingredients.
1. Mix all dry ingredients (first 5 ingredients) together in a large bowl. Use a whisk to stir together.
2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine egg whites, greek yogurt, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla.
3. Add dry mixture to wet gradually. TIP: pour dry ingredients onto wax paper, grab the ends and pour evenly and gradually into wet mixture. Wax paper acts like a funnel.
4. Add chocolate chips/chunks if using them (you should…they’re really good with them).
5. Bake 9-11 minutes.
(Yield: 4 doz small cookies or 2 doz med/large cookies)
Eat and enjoy!
