These Protein Cookies are perfect as they are, or a great plain simple cookie – or you can add things like Dark chocolate, Walnuts or Coconut.
I always pop a few of these Protein Cookies in my handbag, to have on hand when I’m out and about – So often it’s saved me from buying a prepackaged protein bar thats full of less than desirable ingredients.
Super handy for that time in between meals when you just need something little to get you through OR as a beautiful accompaniment to your afternoon coffee.
PLEASE NOTE: This recipe is unsweetened because sometimes I like to add Parmesan, Feta & Olives and make some savoury protein cookies. If you do wish to sweeten – you can add 2T of sweetener of choice.
If making savoury leave out Vanilla and Cinnamon too.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Ingredients for Base Cookie Recipe
- 150g Low Carb Pancake Mix
- 150g Almond Meal
- 50g Lupin Flakes
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 120g melted butter (not margarine)
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- Preheat the oven to 175°C and line a baking tray with grease proof paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (including any additions you like!)
- In a separate bowl whisk together wet ingredients – (egg, melted butter and vanilla), then pour into dry ingredients.
- Mix with a fork until all combined and a dough forms.
- Roll mix into approx. 3cm balls and place on the tray, pressing down lightly with a fork.
- Pro tip: wet the fork if it starts sticking to the cookies!
- Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the tops start to brown.
- Remove and place on a cooling rack.
If you wish to make my Dark Choc & Walnut Cookies:
- Add 100g small chopped dark choc or dark choc chips, 80g chopped walnuts & 2 teaspoons sweetener to dry ingredients.
- Follow the rest of the cooking instructions the same.
Want to bake a meal replacement?
Bake only 12 cookies – so they are double the size, and then these become a “meal cookie”.
The perfect brekkie to go with your coffee 🙂
