Choc Chip Protein Cookie

Posted on Wed 29th July 2015 in Vegetarian, Vegan, Breakfast

Ideal as a snack during the day or after a workout for an added protein boost in your day. Dark chocolate contains anti-oxidants, is high in fiber and loaded with minerals. Almonds (almond flour or meal) contain heart healthy fats and is high in vitamin E and minerals. Coconut oil is now classed as a superfood and contains lauric acid that is known to kill harmful pathogens (eg bacterial and viruses) and is known to help stave off hunger. All 3 ingredients are good for your heart. Add to it eggs and protein powder for your muscle building properties and oats for energy and you have one nutritionally powerful snack.
