When you hear vanilla cookies, two things probably come to your mind: Boring and unhealthy.
This misconception couldn’t be further from the truth! The vanilla cookies are definitely not boring, and they are not your typical unhealthy cookie.
We throw out all the rules with this one.
These cookies are tasty and melt in your mouth. Plus, they are made with natural, healthy ingredients so you don’t have to feel bad when you over-indulge in them (and trust us, you will!).
This old-fashion cookie with a twist is the perfect snack for you to munch on throughout the day, and they are easy to take with you. Plus, the kids will love them, and you don’t have to think twice about giving them one.
These cookies are sweet, with a soft texture, but they are packed with Detox Organics Daily Protein that will help keep your hunger in check between meals.
These cookies aren’t just tasty; they’re practical as well.
Sometimes we just want to reach for something sweet, but the last thing we want is a treat full of sugar. And when we are hungry, sugar is the last thing we want to be reaching for. When you snack on traditional cookies, you are working against your goals, and they do little in keeping your hunger at bay. Too much sugar and bad ingredients can promote inflammation in the body, give you a sugar crash later, and make you gain weight.
Because these cookies are made with protein, they make the perfect snack to munch on when you are feeling hungry. You’ll find that they will keep you full longer, which is great if you are trying to slim down and lose weight.
Yes, these cookies may actually HELP you lose weight! It doesn’t get much better than that.
Vanilla Oat Protein Cookies
(Makes 12-14 cookies)
- 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup almond flour
- ½ cup rolled oats
- 1 scoop Daily Protein
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ⅛ tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 350º F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, maple syrup or honey, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Add the almond flour, oats, Daily Protein, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Use a rubber spatula to mix everything together until thoroughly combined.
Use a tablespoon to scoop the batter onto the baking sheet. Roll into balls and flatten with your fingertips (it helps to wet your hands with water to prevent sticking).
Baking for 10 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container or resealable bag in the fridge or freezer.
