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.

Ingredients

1 cup almond flour
1 cup tahini
1 scoop collagen *omit if vegan
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 egg *see notes for vegan
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of sea salt

Method

In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, tahini, collagen (if using), maple syrup, vanilla and chocolate chips. Once mixed, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes - It’s super important for the dough to chill, so don’t skip this step.

While the dough is chilling, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove bowl from the refrigerator, and add the egg (or flax egg), baking soda and sea salt. Mix together until well combined.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls, place on a baking sheet with 1-1/2 inch space in between. Press down slightly to flatten. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before serving.

Notes

  • To make it vegan: replace with a flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax and 2 1/2 tbsp warm water, whisk and set aside to thicken.)
