How This Nourishes Your Body

These coconut cookies have become one of my weekly staples. I love the texture, and the fact they are filled with healing fat and protein instead of flour and sugar which spikes your blood sugar -> spikes your cortisol ->  causes weight gain and a bad mood.

I love to add -> home made coconut milk whipped cream, but they are also amazing plain!

These cookies are filled with healing fat and protein for a guilt-free dessert that does not cause inflammation in your body. I love to have them on hand for a snack or a side to my breakfast and lunch.

    These sound yummy! I’m on the SCD diet and the protein powder would not be allowed. Any way to get around this?

      Hi Teri! So sorry for the late reply, it got hidden some how. You could try collagen powder or casava flour! You could also just use 1/2 more of ground sunflowerseeds or other nut:) Thanks for reaching out!

        can you use almond flour instead of protein powder? thank you!

        • Renewing All Things  March 2, 2018 at 4:10 pm

          Hi there! If the almond flour is ground super fine it should work great! Let me know if you try it! 🙂

    Hello! I was wondering if you had any idea about the nutrition information (such as calories) on these? The protein powder I used has 100 cals in it. Thank you and I’m sorry to ask!

  • Melissa Sue  August 11, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    I think I forgot to add the protein powder, and these still turned out great!

    • Renewing All Things  August 11, 2017 at 4:36 pm

      Yay I am so glad to hear that! 🙂

    So 3 cookies are a serving?

  • Michela  April 24, 2018 at 4:26 am

    The link to print the recipe doesn’t work? Just kicks me out

  • Dianne  May 4, 2018 at 8:18 am

    You said that flour and sugar will spike your blood sugar -> spikes your cortisol -> causes weight gain and a bad mood.
    I think you meant to say that ..spike your blood sugar -> spikes your insulin -> NOT CORTISOL. Although if you have high cortisol it is harder to lose weight.

  • Julie G  May 31, 2018 at 8:28 am

    I am no baker, but these turned out so yummy! How do I keep them from falling apart? Even after baking they aren’t holding together.

    • Megan Kelly  June 7, 2018 at 2:57 pm

      Hi Julie! I would experiment with different protein powders as different ones will create different textures. I hope this helps!! 🙂

  • Lorraine vos  September 1, 2018 at 9:42 am

    I love these and since I’m sugar and sweetener free I used date paste. They turned out fantastic.

    • Megan Kelly  September 4, 2018 at 1:36 pm

      That’s a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing:) I will have to try that!

  • Barbara Keeler  October 19, 2018 at 4:26 pm

    Mine fell a apart too after cooking. I used a vegan protein powder but didn’t have sunflower seed so used hemp seeds. Any suggestions?

  • Esor  February 3, 2019 at 9:09 pm

    What is the fiber contents for these

  • Mike  March 31, 2019 at 2:47 pm

    Ya, I’m having a problem with the crumbly thing too. Seems to me it would be better if an almond or coconut flour were to be incorporated. If I make these again I’ll go that route.
