Happy Monday, friends!
How was your weekend? I spent most of the weekend preparing for and/or auditioning for my first musical in over 6 years. I won’t know until later this week if I got in, but it felt great to participate in the process again, to say the least!
As soon as school ended last week, I knew I needed to up my snack game since I haven’t had time to really cook for awhile. I love that these look and taste like cookies but are actually perfectly healthy and filling snacks.
I’ve been keeping them in the fridge to have on hand throughout the day!
Vanilla Coconut Cookies
Makes about 8
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Aloha Vanilla Bean Protein Powder)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
2 tablespoons cacao nibs
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together coconut flour, vanilla protein, baking powder and salt.
In a medium bowl, beat together coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, and almond milk.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just mixed.
Fold in the coconut and cacao nibs.
Form into balls and flatten onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes and let cool before serving.
Time: 25 minutes
