CHOCOLATE CHIP PROTEIN COOKIES

Ingredients: – 1 cup rolled oat – 1/2 cup almond flour – 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder – 1/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter – 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup – 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon baking powder – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1/3 cup dark chocolate chip

 Preheat Your Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with cooking spray to prevent the cookies from sticking.

1Prepare Your Ingredients: Measure out the rolled oats, almond flour, vanilla protein powder, almond butter or peanut butter, honey or maple syrup, unsweetened applesauce, vanilla extract, baking powder, salt, and dark chocolate chips. Having everything pre-measured will make the baking process smoother.

Combine the Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, almond flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir until well combined.

1Mix in the Wet Ingredients: Add the almond butter or peanut butter, honey or maple syrup, unsweetened applesauce, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Stir until a thick, sticky dough forms. If the dough seems too dry, you can add a splash of almond milk or water to help bind it together.

 Fold in the Chocolate Chips: Gently fold the dark chocolate chips into the cookie dough until evenly distributed. The chocolate chips will add bursts of rich, indulgent flavor to every bite.

 Form the Cookies: Using a spoon or cookie scoop, portion out the cookie dough and place it onto the prepared baking sheet. Use your hands or the back of a spoon to flatten each cookie slightly, as they will not spread much during baking.

 Bake Until Golden: Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the tops are set. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking, as protein cookies can dry out quickly if cooked for too long.

1Cool and Enjoy: Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, enjoy these delicious Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies as a satisfying and nutritious snack any time of day.
