Collagen Protein Cookies (Paleo & AIP)


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 3/4 c + 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 scoops collagen peptides
  • 1/2 ground tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (alcohol free)
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • For the frosting (optional)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (softened by not melted)
  • 1 tbsp carob powder
  • 1/2 tsp honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease a parchment lined baking sheet with coconut oil.
  2. Combine coconut flour and collagen in a mixing bowl
  3. Add the coconut oil and stir vigorously until well combined. You want the coconut oil to be softened, but not melted.
  4. Add the remainder on the ingredients and combine.
  5. Form the dough into cookies (you’ll have about 7-8 medium sized cookies) and place on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 8-10 minutes, being careful to not let them burn. Expect the edges to crisp a bit.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack for 5-10 minutes.
  8. While the cookies are still warm but not hot, prepare the frosting (optional) by adding the ingredients to a bowl and mixing vigorously. Heat for just a few seconds to soften if needed, but don’t allow it to melt.
  9. Pour the frosting mixture into a piping bag or just a plastic bag with the tip cut off and drizzle over the cookies. The heat from the cookies should help melt the frosting over the cookies.
  10. Throw the cookies in your purse as a snack, in your lunch box, or eat them as a snack at home!
