These cookies are great for morning or afternoon tea as well as pre and post workouts. They have apples and almonds for that great hit good fats, fiber, and protein. Just what you need for fuel before or after a workout or just because!

  • 2 medium red (or green) apples, chopped with skin left on
  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 115 g (4 scoops) of Vanilla Protein Powder of choice

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Make it like so....

  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Prep baking tray with little oil or use baking paper
  • Combine all ingredients except eggs in food processor. Pulse until pieces are small, yet still chunky.
  • Combine mixture with eggs in a large mixing bowl and mix well.
  • Shape mixture into cookies, I use a tablespoon of mixture, and flatten them out a bit.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30- 35 minutes.
  • Remove and allow to cool.

Notes

These are very filling cookies, two cookies equals a serving.

I would store these little gems in your freezer to keep them fresh for longer. They don’t have preservatives and go soft quickly.
