The classic chocolate chip cookie joins with some healthy protein and new ingredients to make a yummy vegan treat you won’t forget.

Wanna cookie? Cookies are warm, sweet bliss and joy-filled wonderfulness. Homemade cookies remind us of our childhood, the love that went into making them, and they bring back great memories of parties and holidays past. Sinful and small, they can be enjoyed without too much guilt. Everyone, even the family pets, will gleefully respond to “Wanna cookie?”

Cookies are the ultimate comfort finger food. A crispy cookie dipped in a vegan chai latte or organic coffee, or a warm cookie dunked into cold organic vegan milk, for most people this is simply heaven.

This recipe brings the best of both worlds: health and gooey goodness. For our health we use Sunwarrior and organic almond butter which both provide a lot of bioavailable nutrition. We omit eggs and dairy that can often cause lactose allergies. This recipe is vegan, which means it’s good karma and harm free—more great reasons to indulge!

Who could stay depressed with all of this delicious decadence going on? Recruit some help and enjoy this recipe with love. Remember you’re creating the gift of positive karma and health!

Protein Chocolate Chip Ball Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Classic vanilla protein
  • 2 cups rolled or old fashioned organic oats
  • 3 tablespoons organic flax meal or ground flaxseed + 6 tablespoons water, mix and let sit (this is your binder)
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup organic almond butter
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
  • Dash of fine ground sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon organic alcohol free vanilla, or to taste
  • 1 cup (or more :) ) vegan chocolate chips

Directions:

chocolate_chip_cookies_pan_oven_bake_picPreheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix everything together by hand.

Press into baking pan for bars. Or you can use an ice cream scoop or large spoon for balls and plop them onto a cookie sheet.

Bake for more than 8 minutes but less than 20 minutes. I pull from the oven closer to 8 minutes, when they still look raw, and let them cool. Do not wait until they are brown to pull out of the oven (sometimes less is more!).

For balls this will make small batch.

Double or triple if family or friends are coming over!

  • Mine did not look at all like this, I feel like I did something wrong with the oats :( I feel like they were mostly oat and more like a granola bar. Do you know what I did wrong?

  • Hi! I am trying to avoid tree nuts due to migraines can I sub almond butter and coconut oil with something else?

      Hey Mirjana, you could try sesame seed or sunflower seed butter, and you can probably get away with removing the coconut oil entirely, but you'll need to grease the pan. Let us know how it works.

  • Thanks for sharing! With these awesome whole foods ingredients, this recipe has to be a winner !

    I'm just venturing with out of the box ways to use protein powders! :)

    It might be helpful to include a nutritional analysis of the recipes: energy, protein, vitamins / minerals, etc...esp the ones important for vegans to be mindful of and thanks again!
