A few weeks back I realized that I lacked on protein in my diet. I bought a protein powder to make shakes after working out. I discovered that you can do way more with this powder than only using it to make a shake. You can also include protein powder in a baked good.
Cutting out refined sugar is hard but very manageable. I try to avoid sweet foods as much as I can. For example I try to not sweeten my oatmeal anymore with stevia or I don’t eat prepackaged foods that often anymore.
However I’m a human and I would never restrict myself of something. Today I was craving a vanilla flavored cookie so I made it!
Here’s the recipe that I made up myself:
You’ll need (6 cookies):
60gr butter, softened – 1 small egg – 60gr protein powder (I used Smart protein – cookies & cream) – 60gr spelt flour – a pinch of salt – 1 tsp to 1 tbsp cookie herbs – stevia (to taste)
All you need to do, is combine all the ingredients and make 6 cookies out of the dough. Bake them for 10 minutes at 190° C.
The cookie itself tasted just like I wanted it to be. The inside was still goey and even a bit sandy. I think that was because of the protein powder. I almost didn’t use stevia because the protein powder was already sweetened.
I hope you give this recipe a try too!
