If you're looking to kick up your protein intake and reduce processed sugars, this new twist on the traditional chocolate chip cookie will help you get started. Using coconut flour and cutting out that mandatory cup or so of sugar for baked goods is sure to please your sweet tooth without the guilt of empty calories. Additionally, If you want even lower-calorie and lower-fat cookies use oats instead of flaked coconut, almonds or walnuts instead of pecan nuts, and cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips.

Ingredients

1 large egg

1/2 cup of chocolate protein powder

1/4 cup of coconut flour

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1/4 cup of flaked coconut

1/4 cup of milk

10 ground Pecans

1/8 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 340 F or 170 C.

Mix together egg, protein powder, coconut flour, baking soda, coconut, milk, and ground or finely crumbled pecan nuts.

Once dough is formed, stir in chocolate chips.

Using a spoon, divide 12 cookies and place on a non-stick or greased baking sheet. Place in oven for 15-20 minutes.

Remove cookies from the oven as soon as they're done. It's good if they're a bit soft in the center. Make sure you don't overcook them because they'll dry up and lose their deliciousness.

Let cool. Pour yourself a tall glass of milk and boom! Enjoy a couple of cookies!
