You can never really have too many cookie recipes right? I know! This recipe is similar to my Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie recipe. Its gluten free, with added protein! Its lower carb and low sugar (even with the sweet add ins!). I find that you can use a small amount of the add-ins and still get the taste in each cookie. As mentioned below, these are more crumbly than regular cookies with flour, the they are still crazy delicious, and it kinda gives you an excuse to eat it all in one bite!
Flourless Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies
Makes 20 cookies
1 egg white (2 Tbsp carton egg white)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
1/4 cup coconut oil (or butter, softened, or vegan margarine)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 scoops (30 gram scoops) Whey Gourmet vanilla whey protein
1/3 cup stevia for baking (or 10-12 packets of stevia or sugar substitute of choice)
1/2 cup almond meal (I just grind up raw almonds in my blender)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup Craisins (dried cranberries)
1/4 cup chocolate chips (would also be great with white chocolate chips, but I didn’t have any on hand)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together egg, egg white, peanut butter, coconut oil (not melted) and vanilla. Once that’s smooth, mix in the protein powder, stevia, almond meal, baking soda, Craisins and chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoon onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for approx 9 minutes until it just starts to get golden around the edges.
Cool completely. These cookies WILL be more fragile and crumbly than regular cookies. Just naturally happens when its flourless and made with almond flour versus bean & rice flours and all the xanthan gum etc.
