Super easy—and yummy!—recipe…perfect for snacking and/or desserts. I’ve also enjoyed these for breakfast with my greens supplement for my veggie. It’s so delicious and accommodates various low-sugar diets!
What You Need
- 1 cup thick almond butter (I used 1/4 c Barney Butter Smooth Almond Butter and 3/4 c Nutzo dark chocolate seven nut & seed butter).
- 3/4 cup coconut palm sugar or golden monkfruit. Adjust as needed for sweetness or add a little organic stevia.
- 1 Organic egg, whisked
- 1/2 cup unsweetened organic cocoa powder
- 1 packet Plexus P96 (I’ve used both vanilla and chocolate…they’re both awesome. Chocolate does make it more chocolaty. P96 is a cold-pressed whey protein that is GMO and gluten free. Sub P96 for a vegan-based protein if needed.)
- 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I go a little heavy with it)
- pinch of sea salt (I used pink Himalayan)
- 1 teaspoon unsweetened almond milk—carrageenan free (I used Silk or I make my own)
- 1/4 cup organic Chocolate Chips. I used dark chocolate. Yum!
What You Do
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together almond butter and coconut sugar (or monk fruit). It took a minute or so to get this blended up. Then add egg and mix again until well combined.
Add all the cocoa powder and completely combine.
Then add baking soda, vanilla, salt, P96, hemp seeds, almond milk, and chocolate chips and combine until everything is well mixed. (The dough should be very thick.)
Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop out around 2 tablespoons of dough and make into a round ball. Place on baking sheet with or without parchment. If no parchment you may want to do a quick spritz of avocado, grapseed, or olive oil spray. You should be able to get about 10-12 cookies.
Now, use a fork to press the cookie balls down just slightly. Don’t press too hard or they’ll fall apart.
Place baking sheet into the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool for at least 5-10 minutes. Dig in and enjoy!
2 cookies will be about 220-260 calories.
