Ingredients listed in instructions.
High protein/low carb deliciousness
½ cup chopped or sliced almonds
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
½ cup walnuts or other nuts
Toast on a baking sheet in a 350 degree oven until fragrant (about 5 minutes). Let cool and set aside.
Ingredient set #2
1 ½ cups applesauce
Ό cup almond butter
1 T real vanilla extract (or 1 vanilla bean)
Mix until smooth then set aside
Ingredient set #3
1 cup vanilla whey protein
3 T cocoa (or omit if using chocolate whey protein)
1 cup powdered sugar alternative (stevia for baking, xylitol, erythritol, etc)
1 cup flax seeds, ground to a powder/meal
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
Cinnamon to taste
Blend Ingredient set #1 and #3, then stir in Ingredient set #2 until full incorporated. At this point I will sometimes add in chopped apple or a chopped sugar-free chocolate bar, etc. Use your imagination, or use this opportunity to use up some of the stuff in your freezer/pantry. Let batter sit for 5 minutes. This wont be quite as thick as typical cookie batter. Dont worry! Ive even replaced the almond butter with pumpkin puree and added some pumpkin pie spice and they were delicious!
Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper (otherwise, grease the sheet very well). Drop the cookie batter by rounded spoonfuls making sure to smooth them into a cookie shape since they wont move much in the oven. Place in a 350 degree oven for 10-13 minutes, until fully set. Allow cookies to cool completely before wrapping portions tightly and freezing for quick thaw and eat breakfasts on the go.
Serving Size: Makes 30 cookies
