Fudgy Double Chocolate Protein Cookies by Lau's Healthy Kitchen
- 3 scoop chocolate protein powder- this was about 3/4 cup total (I used @livwell_nutrition‘s cacao vegan protein powder- highly recommend it as a vegan protein powder!)
- 2 tbs cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
- Pinch of pink salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp psyllium husk powder * optional- it just added an extra dose of fibre- you could try subbing this with ground chia or flax or just leave it out!
- 2 tbs coconut flour
- 1/3 cup nut butter of choice- I used almond butter
- 1/4 cup club soda (carbonated water)- I swear this made them more fluffy😅 but subbing with nut milk of choice should work if you don’t have this!
- 1 egg + 1/4 cup egg whites (2 egg whites)
- 2 tbs @lees.provisions Maple ghee (use melted coconut oil instead for a dairy-free option)
- 1/2 cup of golden @lakantosweetener (or sweetener of choice- you could try stevia or @swervesweetie )
- 1 tsp vanilla
- A few squares of your favourite dark chocolate- I used @giddyyoyo Vanilla & @lindtcanada 90% dark!
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl & then add the rest!
- Once you have a dough start to form let it sit for a few minutes & line a baking tray with parchment paper. I used a tablespoon to scoop the dough onto the tray & then slightly pressed them down, & topped with more dark choc chunks.
- Place in the oven & bake for 6-8 minutes. I baked mine for exactly 7 & they were perfect!
You guys are gonna LOVE these! BUT... the key is to take these out before they look fully cooked! They cook a bit on the pan after & the first batch I overcooked & they did not have the same fudginess as the 2nd batch when I cooked them for 7 minutes exactly! Just keep an eye on them b/c every oven can be different but they will look slightly undercooked & feel really soft at first but end up just turning out so fudgey & hold together well after they cool for a bit!
