Double Chocolate Protein Cookies for Two

Double Chocolate Protein Cookies for Two. Because sometimes you just need MORE chocolate. πŸ˜€ This month I’ve been on a double chocolate kick. Yep. And I’m not feeling bad about it, thanks to this recipe!

Although I feel totally comfortable with a little indulgence here and there when we’re out or traveling, I try to keep even our treats pretty β€œclean” when we’re at home. For me, that means avoiding processed sugar, dairy, wheat and anything pre-prepared or overly processed.

Double Chocolate Protein Cookies for Two

This Double Chocolate Protein Cookie recipe is my standard when I’m craving chocolate because it’s grain-free, processed sugar free, perfectly portioned for two people AND:

  1. Quick (cookies in less than 10 mins)
  2. Easy (I mix these up in a coffee mug with a fork)
  3. Super indulgent and chocolate-y (just look at the pictures!)
  4. … did I mention QUICK!

So, without further ado… grab your mug or cereal bowl and give this recipe a spin!

Ingredients

  • 1 Egg White
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Canola Oil or Coconut Oil, melted
  • 2 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Maple
  • 1 Tbsp Almond Meal
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa
  • 1/2 of 36g scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (currently using Purely Inspired French Vanilla)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips ~3-4 Tbsp
  • Optional: 2 Tbsp Chopped Walnuts

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350f.
  2. 2. In a small bowl or mug, whisk together the first 5 wet ingredients.
  3. 3. Add the next 5 ingredients, whisking briskly after each ingredient is added.*
  4. 4. Add chocolate chips!
  5. 5. On silicone cookie sheet or greased pan, spoon out 2 large cookies or use mini ice cream scoop or tablespoon to scoop into 6 small cookies.*
  6. 6. Bake for 6-8 minutes until cookies are set.
  7. *Dough will be stretchy, more like a thick batter. The dough should spread slightly when you scoop it onto the cookie sheet. Texture is everything with this dough- since the dough doesn't usually spread much more while baking, so if the dough is spreading thinner than you prefer (if you like cakier cookies), add just a little more almond meal. I usually scoop my cookies and tap the pan until they're the thickness that I prefer.
