Double chocolate chip protein cookie recipe
These super tasty protein cookies, made with the Bio-Synergy cookies & cream ‘Whey Better’ protein, not only taste great, but they offer our body numerous health benefits too. They are a healthy alternative to a chocolate bar, and slowly release their energy unlike the majority of shop bought chocolate bars or sweets. These protein cookies are exceptionally high in protein and antioxidants, whilst containing no artificial sweeteners or sugars.
A little tip… make sure you don’t heat your oven over 150c, as these cookies will burn very quickly if your oven is too hot. They only need to cook for a few minutes, and will firm up once cooled.
Pre-heat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas 2
In a small mixing jug place the coconut oil, egg whites, agave nectar, coconut sugar and vanilla extract. Mix together and then set aside.
In a large mixing bowl place the whey protein and flour along with white and dark choc chips. Mix together and then pour the contents of the jug into the large mixing bowl. Mix all the ingredients together until a cookie dough has formed.
Now divide the dough into twelve equal cookie portions, then roll each cookie between the palms of your hands, then place the ball on the baking tray and flatten down slightly with the tip of your fingers. (If you wish you can use a cookie cutter to create different cookie shapes)
Once you have placed all twelve cookies on the baking tray/trays. Place the baking tray in the oven and cook for 3 minutes. (If you over cook the cookies they will become dry or even burn). After 3 minutes remove from the oven and allow the cookies to fully set and cool on the tray for around 20 minutes before moving. Once fully cooled place the cookies in an airtight storage container and enjoy over the next 7 days. These cookies are best to be stored in the fridge.
