🔥Healthy No Bake Triple Chocolate Protein Cookies🔥 ❗Ingredients❗
2 cups gluten free oat flour (GF oats ground to a flour)
1/2 cup gluten free oat bran (can sub for extra 1/2 cup oat flour)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 standard scoop of chocolate protein powder (can sub for an extra 1/2 cup oat flour)
2 T granulated sweetener of choice
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup + 2 T nut butter of choice (I used homemade hazelnut butter)
3/4 cup brown rice syrup (can sub for honey if not strictly vegan)
1/4-1/2 cup unsweetened dairy free milk*
Unsweetened chocolate chips/chunks (I used sugar free chips) ❗Instructions❗
Line a large baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, oat bran, cocoa powder, chocolate protein powder, sweetener of choice and sea salt and mix well.
In a microwave safe bowl, add the nut butter of choice and brown rice syrup and heat until melted and mix to incorporate.
Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and stir until fully combined- Mixture should be crumbly. Slowly add dairy free milk, one tablespoon at a time, until a very thick dough is formed. Let sit for 4-5 minutes to ensure mixture has cooled. Stir through the chocolate chips until fully incorporated.
Using your hands, form small balls and press down to a cookie shape on the baking tray. Using a fork, press down on it twice and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before consuming.
Depending on the protein powder and/or if you use all oat flour, you need to adjust your liquid mixture.
These can be stored at room temperature. If refrigerated, thaw very slightly.
The granulated sweetener of choice is optional- For a sweetener cookie, add 1-2 tablespoons. I prefer a more 'bland' cookie dough to bring out the flavours cocoa and chocolate chips.
