Cashew Butter Protein Cookies December 17 2013
I have been meaning to make protein cookies for weeks and finally today I gave them a go! Protein cookies are a perfect morning/ afternoon tea snack - I enjoyed a couple of these today with a cup of coffee. This recipe is gluten free, high protein, low carb and has no refined sugar! I use IsaPro which is undentured whey protein from pasture-fed New Zealand dairy cows (not treated with hormones or routine antibiotics).
2 heaped tablespoons of cashew butter (or any other nut butter you have in the fridge)
1/4 cup of vanilla whey protein powder
1/4 cup pea protein powder
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon of honey (my cookie was not too sweet so add an extra spoon if you like a sweeter cookie)
Pinch of stevia
Small handful of flaked almonds
Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius.
Mix all ingredients together in a food processor or large bowl.
Roll in to 8 balls and then flatten on to a lined baking tray to make round cookie shapes.
Sprinkle with flaked almonds.
Cook for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
Cool and then store in an airtight container.
