Apple Cinnamon Protein Cookies
Updated: Oct 15, 2020
Ok, let me preface with this...these are gluten free, dairy free and free of added sugar. In cookieland, that means that the chances of a choir of Angels breaking out in song when you take a bite are slim. If you're feeling rebellious, you could add a touch of brown sugar (2T) or a drizzle of maple syrup to kick them up a notch.
That said, they aren't bad. They taste a lot like baked oatmeal and pack a healthy punch of protein and fiber, while being a heck of a lot faster to grab than a bowl of oatmeal.
Now, on to the recipe...
1 1/2 C Rolled Oats
1/4C Sliced Almonds
2 Scoops Vanilla Protein Powder (I use Orgain brand's vegan vanilla)
2T Ground Flax Seed
1T Chia Seeds
1 Apple (Medium, diced)
1/2 C Unsweetened Apple
1/2 C Egg Whites
Preheat oven to 350°
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring until well blended. Use a small scoop (about 2T) to place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake 15 minutes or until firm. Store in airtight container in refrigerator. Recipes renders about 16 cookies.
