What ingredients are in these protein cookies?
- Almond butter provides healthy fats, fiber and protein to keep you full and satisfied. Almonds are a great for your skin because they provide an excellent source of vitamin B & E and botin. Eat ’em up.
- Almond milk. prefered to use almond milk in this recipe because it adds moisture to the cookies, but also keeps them dairy free.
- Protein powder. DO NOT be afraid of using a little protein powder. I prefer vegan protein powders. Collagen peptides are also amazing!
- Coconut flour. The most absorbent flour ever. I love how the coconut flour keeps the cookies soft and slightly sweet for days.

- *For the protein powder: These cookies were tested with the following protein powders with good results: Vital Proteins collagen peptides, Vega Coconut Almond protein powder, Aloha vanilla protein powder and Bob's Red Mill Whey protein powder. I like using the vegan protein powders for more nutrition.
