Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup almond butter (can use peanut butter) *
1/4 cup protein powder (I used Two Islands Co Vanilla and Coconut)
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, fan bake and line an oven tray with baking paper.
In a food processor or blender, blend the oats until fine. Add the protein powder, shredded coconut, baking powder, and salt.
Using a double boiler or microwave, melt the almond butter and maple syrup.
Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and stir until a dough forms. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Using a tablespoon, scoop out the cookie mixture to form balls and place them on the baking sheet. Gently press down the balls and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until they have turned slightly golden. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before eating.
