  • Heat oven to 180°C. Roll tablespoon portions of the cookie dough into shape and place onto a lined baking tray. Place in fridge for 15 minutes (this will help the cookies to hold their shape and produce a light, soft and chewy centre). 
  • Bake cookies in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool. 
  • Best enjoyed on the day of baking or store in refrigerator. 


Recipe notes: 
*Use a good quality protein powder without additives or artificial sweeteners. Most flavours will work in this recipe. A vanilla or chocolate protein would be ideal. I use this plant based protein powder in the ‘vanilla cake batter’ flavour. 
*To make a chia egg, combine 1 tbsp chia seed with 3 tbsp water and allow to sit for 5 minutes for chia seeds to swell. 
  • In this recipe I used coconut water made from coconut water powder and water.
