Gluten-Free Oatmeal Protein Cookies

These are quite healthy cookies (and, honestly, they taste like it). But if you need a whole grain, protein-rich, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free treat, these could be just the ticket!

Makes 15 Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups gluten-free oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsps vanilla
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used pea protein)
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup Stevia in the Raw (depending of preferred sweetness)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup extras (ex. nuts, chocolate chips, or dried fruit)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine dry ingredients (oats, salt, vanilla protein powder, cinnamon, Stevia in the Raw, flaked coconut, extras).
  3. Combine wet ingredients (almond milk, eggs, vanilla).
  4. Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients.
  5. Scoop 2 T dough balls on to a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake cookies for 15 to 17 minutes.
  7. ENJOY!
