Ingredients

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1 cup cashew butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 cups cassava flour
1 scoop vanilla protein powder *see notes
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Method

Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Throw all ingredients (except chocolate chips) into a medium-sized bowl and mix with a hand mixer until batter is fluffy.

Using a spatula, fold in chocolate chips.

Once combined, shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet with 1-1/2 inch space in between.

With a fork, gently press a criss-cross pattern into each dough ball to flatten. If you find your fork sticks to the dough, you can drop it in a bit of flour.

Now pop your cookies into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. When done, remove from oven and let cool before serving.
