Enough is enough, right? I teased you with this cookie last week and never delivered. Shame on me. What can I say though? I’m a tease.
Last night (while watching last week’s The Bachelor Pad) I added a little GNC egg white protein to my low calorie almond coconut ice cream and it was nothing short of pure protein yumminess. (I have such great grammar sometimes.)
Let’s get right to business. No nonsense or anything because this guy was wide awake at 5:45 am
and I only have half of my usual allotted “office hours” time to get this post up and ready.
Speaking of this guy, if you didn’t watch our Ultimate Sandbag workout video from yesterday it’s worth it just to see his squirt bottle shenanigans around minute 7 or so. I laugh every time.
Oh, and do you want to see a picture of me teaching classes last night?
Oops. I thought you said yes.
More on the outfit and a cool giveaway later this week. Weeee…….
Okay, back to the cookie and ice cream business.
After my nerves got the best of me the other week and I made this calm me down low carb cookie, I had the bright idea the other day to make a version with a little added protein. Since then I’ve been making it almost daily. It’s taken the place of the STUFT protein crispy treat.
I even made it this morning just one more time to make sure it was blog ready.
I think it is.
Keep in mind this is a protein cookie. It doesn’t taste like the full fat ginormous sugar cookie (although it kind of looks like it does). It does, however, fill you up and give you a good serving of protein and fiber. It’s just pure goodness. Pure GNC goodness that is.
Protein Dream Cookie
makes one big cookie
2 tablespoons coconut flour (14 grams)
1 tablespoon egg white protein powder 10 g (this one is obviously my favorite)
1 tablespoon egg whites (or egg substitute)
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce *recipe variations below
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil (optional)
1 sweetener packet
Mix all ingredients together to form dough.
Form cookie on parchment paper and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
*If you do not like the taste of fat free baking, sub in a tablespoon of nut butter or coconut oil for one of the tablespoons of applesauce.
A little look at the process.
Eat as is,
or even top with some chia protein frosting.
Chia Protein Frosting
5 grams chia
10 grams egg white protein powder
1 tablespoon sugar free syrup
Um yeah, don’t mind if I do.
(This morning’s cookie had the nutmeg, cinnamon and the 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil. It was delicious.)
- Just in case you want to know, last night’s protein ice cream creation was my almond coconut ice cream with a scoop (about 15 grams) of GNC egg white protein powder.
I topped it with some two ingredient frosting.
This will definitely be happening again soon and yes, I know the mug is awesome.
Okay, that’s all friends. Have a great day! We’re doing the BOSU thing at the gym this morning and the boot camp thing at home this afternoon.
