Soft and chewy healthy cookies rich in protein and healthy fats to curb your cravings and keep you feeling satisfied. These chocolate chip protein cookies are the perfect snack for in between meals, when you are craving something sweet or even post workout. Satisfy your sweet cravings or enjoy with a cuppa for a feel good healthy snack.
To make these healthy chocolate chip protein cookies I’ve used a combination of protein and healthy fats. These macronutrients help to keep your blood sugar levels stable, energy balanced and keep you satisfied in between meals without cravings.
In this recipe you will find sources of protein from almond butter, chia seeds and protein powder.
The chia seeds also provide a source of omegas, magnesium, calcium and fibre. 🙌🏻 I used chia seeds from the Botanika Basics range (gluten free, quality pantry staples for healthy recipes).
The recipe calls for a plant based liquid of choice such as almond milk, coconut milk or coconut water. To add a hint of natural sweetness and benefits of hydration through naturally occurring electrolytes, I’ve used coconut water. To make your own coconut water you can mix preservative free coconut water powder with water. Coconut water powder is a great pantry staple to keep coconut water on hand.
Which protein powder to use?
Always choose a good quality protein powder, without additives, artificial flavours, artificial colours or artificial sweeteners.
I use a plant based protein powder that is both gluten free and vegan friendly by Botanika Blends. Their range of plant based protein powder includes a variety of flavours to diversify your cooking, baking and protein smoothies. The Botanika Blends protein is free from nasties, gluten free (tested and verified), has no artificial sweeteners and has a smooth texture ideal for smoothies and recipes like these protein cookies.
