Protein Dark Chocolate Cookies

Valentina

These are not your traditional chewy, soft cookies - but if  you're a dark chocolate fan, then you’ll quite like these not-quite cookies. The taste and texture is like that of a dark chocolate bar, but with an added dose of protein and no artificial sweeteners. A food processor is required for these, as they will not bind into a dough otherwise. From there, shape them into round cookies, bars, or any other shape you wish.

Did you know raw cacao has 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries? It’s the highest plant-based source of Iron and has more calcium per ounce than cow’s milk. Raw cacao is also a fantastic source of magnesium and is a natural anti-depressant.

Freeze For 3-4 months

Best by 1 week refrigerated


Shopping List
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup vegan protein powder (Note 1)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional, but recommended)

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Step 2: Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until a dough forms. Sorry, but these cookies will not work with hand-mixing. The processor is necessary for them to bind. Keep in mind that all protein powders absorb liquid differently, so you may need to add a little more or a less maple syrup to reach a compact dough consistency.
  3. Step 3: Form the dough into round cookies (or bars, whatever shape you like) and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. These cookies will not rise, so make them about 1/3 inch tall. Eyeball it. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Step 4: Remove the cookies from the oven. They will still be very soft. Allow them to cool fully, placing them in the fridge to harden.
  5. Serve: Enjoy. I like to warm these up slightly in the microwave, until the chocolate chips are gooey but the inside is still firm.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Since there are so few ingredients here, your cookies will taste strongly of the protein powder you're using. So make sure you enjoy the taste of your protein powder before adding it.

The taste and texture is like that of a dark chocolate bar, but with an added dose of nourishing protein. A food processor is required for these, as they will not bind into a dough otherwise.
