Chocolate Protein Cookies

Serves 12

1 cup almond meal
½ cup brown rice flour
¼ cup chocolate whey protein isolate powder (available in our online store)
¼ teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons almond butter
4 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 – 3 tablespoons milk, as needed

Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the almond meal, brown rice flour, chocolate protein, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and combine well. Mix in the coconut oil, almond butter, sweetener, vanilla extract and milk, and combine with your hands to make a dough. Using your hands, roll heaped tablespoons of the dough into round cookie shapes and place on the baking tray. Using a fork, gently press in the middle of each cookie. Bake in the oven for 14-18 minutes, or until the cookies are crisp on the outside. Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes, then enjoy!
