The smell of cookies wafting through the air. No matter who you are, I think this smell brings you back to the good ole days and if you are like me than there is nothing better than chocolate. NOTHING! Growing up I dubbed myself a chocoholic. You may snicker, but it is a real thing. Actually there are many studies that show that sugar is more addictive than cocaine! Well, these cookies are a little slice of heaven on earth. They are higher in calories but as you will see the ingredients are so much better for you than regular chocolate cookies. Now if you are doing 30 Days to Fit with me, these are not for us until we are at our goal weight! Stay the course and we will make it! But, if you have kiddos or a husband with a sweet tooth (like mine), these are a great fit! They are so good!
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
3/4 cup Coconut Sugar
1 large Egg
1 tbsp pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Salt (I use Himalayan Pink Salt, it’s better for you)
3 scoops (3/4 cup) Arbonne Chocolate Protein Powder
1/2 cup Namaste Gluten Free Flour*
1 cup dairy free Chocolate Chips (I use Trader Joe’s brand)
These are so simple to make. Mix all ingredients in order and place onto a greased cookie sheet. I put aluminum down so I don’t have as much clean up afterwards. Cook at 350 degrees for 18 minutes. Enjoy! I make larger cookies and this recipe yields 12 cookies.
*I wanted to make a quick note of Namaste flour. I have tried many gluten free flours and this happens to be my favorite! I use it when I need a thinker soup. I use it as a replacement for any flour that I need and I cannot tell a difference between this and regular flour that spikes your blood sugar and wreaks havoc on your system! I buy mine at Costco, but I have found it on Amazon as well!
