CREAM FILLED PROTEIN COOKIES RECIPE

Ingredients for the cookies

2 tbsp IMO Syrup

4 tbsp Cocoa Powder

2 tbsp Chocolate Grass-Fed Whey Protein powder

 

Ingredients for the Filling

1 tbsp Mascarpone Cheese 

1/8-1/4 cup Vanilla Grass-Fed Whey Protein powder

 

Instructions

First, make your cookies by chucking all the above cookie ingredients in a bowl and mixing it up with a spoon until you get a soft dough that you can mold with your hands into balls. If your dough is too sticky to allow you to do this, add a bit more cocoa powder to it until you get to the right consistency.

Shape 6-10 balls out of the mix and, using your hands, flatten them and place them on a nonstick baking tray or a regular cookie tray lined with baking paper.

Bake at 400 F for no more than 6 minutes. They often take 5 minutes to cook so please check them after five and if they’re cooked through, take them out of the oven.

Make your filling by mixing all your filling ingredients together. If you want your mix to be creamier, feel free to use a little extra protein!

Fill the cookies with with filling and enjoy.

PROTEIN PIZZA DOUGH RECIPE

Ingredients

1¼ cup almond flour

¼ cup Vanilla Grass-Fed Whey Protein powder

4 TBS Psyllium husk powder

½ tsp salt

2 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

1 Tablespoon Italian spices

2 tsp baking powder

2 eggs (4 eggs for coconut flour)

1 cup boiling water

butter or coconut oil (for brushing)

(Toppings of your choice)

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients and mix until blended.

Add eggs and mix until well combined. Add boiling water and mix until dough thickens and start to stick to beaters.

Place ball on greased baking sheet. Spray a piece of parchment with oil and place on to of the dough to help spread without sticking.

Use a rolling pin or your hands to spread the dough into a 16 inch round. Dough will raise 2-3 times its size so make the thickness one third of what you want the final pizza to be (I like a ¼ inch thick crust so I start with about ⅛ inch or less thickness).

Place in oven and Bake for 25 minutes. Remove crust from oven and brush with butter of coconut oil and return to oven.

Broil for 3-8 minutes or until crust is crisp (Be careful, watch closely during this step to make sure it doesn’t burn, just crisps up).

Add topping and broil for another 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted and starts to brown.

Grease a 9-inch by 9-inch pan with coconut oil or line it with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together melted peanut butter, brown rice syrup, protein powder and vanilla until it forms a dough consistency.

PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN COOKIES RECIPE

Ingredients

1/2 cup peanut butter — or nut butter of choice, I use shelf-stable natural peanut butter—see notes if using refrigerated/drippy nut butter

1/4 cup  coconut sugar  — or light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 large egg

1 large egg white

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder — (36 grams)

2 tablespoons  coconut flour

3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

 

Instructions

Place a rack in the center of your oven and preheat the oven 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine the peanut butter, coconut sugar, salt, egg, egg white, and vanilla extract. Mix briskly until ingredients are well blended. Sprinkle the baking soda over the top. With a rubber spatula, work in the protein powder and coconut flour until well combined. They will seem very dry at first, but will continue to come together as you stir and push. Fold in chocolate chips.

Dough should be slightly sticky but not a total mushy mess. If you need a firmer dough, add a bit more protein powder. For a looser dough, sprinkle the batter with a bit of milk (or almond milk) and with a spatula, fold it in until the dough comes together.

With a small cookie scoop or spoon, portion the cookie dough by tablespoonfuls and drop onto your prepared baking sheet. Gently flatten the tops of the cookies, as they will not spread but will puff up during baking.

Bake for 5 to 6 minutes, until the edges are barely golden brown and dry to the touch but the middles seem fairly doughy.
