When you are craving cookies, these are a great, healthier alternative!
To develop this recipe, we used the Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe from Hungry Girl's amazing cookbook, Simply 6, and improvised! If you haven't checked-out Hungry Girl yet - she has wonderful guilt-free recipes and other ideas for staying on track! (Not sponsored by HG - we just love her!)
Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies
- Prep Time = 10 mins
- Cook Time = 20 mins
- Makes 5 Cookies
- 1/3 Cup Unsweetened applesauce
- 2 Tbsp Whipped butter, room temperature
(such as Land O Lakes, may also use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!)
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 Scoops (34g) Vanilla Sugar Cookie Fit Whip
- 1 Tbsp Coconut flour
- (Optional) 1 Packets natural no-calorie sweetener (such as Stevia)
- 1 Tbsp Chocolate chips (mini work best)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350'F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
In a small-to-medium sized bowl, mix together unsweetened applesauce, whipped butter and vanilla extract with a small whisk or fork.
Add Fit Whip, coconut flour and optional sweetener. Mix until uniform - will look like cookie dough.
Stir in 1/2 tablespoon of chocolate chips.
Evenly distribute the mixture into 5 mounds on the baking sheet, about 1.5 tablespoons each. Use the back of a spoon to spread and flatten into 2-inch circles.
Top with remaining chocolate chips, and lightly press to adhere.
Bake for 16-18 minutes.
