Spiced protein cookies.. 

Fact: I love cookies. End of. When I was at uni.. I used to make all the cookies, whoopee pies and, THE BEST EVER BROWNIE, aka the slutty brownie! 

So, when on my quest to ‘healthify’ my favourite foods, I just had to do so to the humble cookie. 

This recipe is chewy as a cookie should be, yet full of protein! 

To make 10, you will need:

-30g of vanilla protein powder,

-150g of egg whites,

– 20g of coconut sugar, 

– 100g of flour (I used quinoa flour),

– 50g of mixed dried fruit, 

– 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon.

Method: 

Simply combine all of the ingredients until well mixed and then use a serving spoon to take one serving spoon size amount, place on a greased baking tray and spread in to a cookie shape! 
Do that for all ten and then pop in to the oven for 10 minutes!
