Maple-Walnut Protein Cookies

by Olesya Novik

These delicious cookies aren’t fat free, but they are extremely low in carbs and have good fats in them. Enjoy them as an after-dinner snack with no concern of fat gain!

Ingredients

1.5 cups Almond Flour
1 cup Vanilla Protein Powder
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 Light Cream Cheese
2 Whole Eggs
1.5 cups Granular Splenda or Stevia
Pinch of Cinnamon
1 capful of Maple Extract
1 capful of Walnut Extract
1 tsp Baking Soda
Pinch of Salt
1/4 cup chopped Walnuts

Directions

Preheat the oven at about 375 F.

Combine softened butter and cream cheese together in a bowl, and mix with an electric blender until it lightens and gets light/airy. Slowly add your sweetener, salt, baking soda, and the maple flavoring to the mix. Add the eggs one at a time, and blend until thoroughly combined.

At this point, slowly incorporate the dry mixture — the almond flour and protein powder. When the dry and wet ingredients are well combined, add the walnuts and incorporate them into the mixture manually. Spoon the batter onto a cookie sheet with a teaspoon to make mini cookies, and bake for 7 minutes, or until just starting to brown.

Allow to cool as they set, and enjoy! Makes 20 small cookies

    Hi Carol,

    Almond flour is available in all health food stores (like Whole Foods), and online (Amazon will carry it!).

    Let me know how it goes when you try these! =o)
