1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup almond butter (or any nut butter of your choice)
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat the Oven:
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix the Dry Ingredients:
In a mixing bowl, combine the Chocolate Flavor Nutrasumma Fermented Pea Protein powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir them together until well mixed.
Mix the Wet Ingredients:
In a separate bowl, combine the almond butter, honey or maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix until you have a smooth and uniform mixture.
Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
Pour the wet ingredient mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until you have a cookie dough-like consistency. If you're using dark chocolate chips, fold them into the cookie dough.
Scoop and Shape the Cookies:
Use a cookie scoop or a spoon to portion out the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Space them about 2 inches apart as they will spread while baking. Use your hands or the back of a fork to gently flatten each cookie and create a cookie shape.
Bake the Cookies:
Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. The cookies are done when they are set and slightly firm to the touch.
Cool and Enjoy:
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, enjoy your chocolate protein cookies!
