Protein Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Ingredients:

1/3 cup Origin Nutrition Vegan Protein – Vanilla

1 cup almond flour 

A pinch of salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 flax egg – 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water and allowed to sit for 10 mins

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup smooth almond butter

1 cup dark chocolate (chopped into chunks)

Method:

Preheat your oven to 350C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Add in the flax egg to the wet ingredients and stir together. Now combine the dry ingredients with the wet. Fold in the chocolate chunks into the cookie dough.

Scoop out medium sized amounts of dough and place it on the parchment paper. Push down slightly because the cookies do not spread too much. Bake for 10 mins. Remove and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve after 15 minutes because the cookies become more chewy once they cool down.
