How This Nourishes Your Body
5 Ingredient Protein Coconut Cookies
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.
Notes for Coconut Cookies
- You can use 2 cups coconut shreds if you do not have/want sunflower seeds.
- You can use any other kind of nut or seed
- I used this pure whey protein powder- but you can use any flavor you would like/have. This vanilla plant protein is also great. (does whey protein cause inflammation?)
- My absolute favorite protein powder these days is bone broth protein. This allows me to get my bone broth in for the day while eating a delicious cookie! You can use the pure, vanilla, or chocolate flavor for this recipe.
- These also go great with my favorite coconut milk latte recipe
- Pre heat oven to 300 degrees.
- Roughly chop sunflower seeds and coconut flakes in blender until broken up in chunks.
- Place all ingredients into a bowl and stir together. If too crumbly, add more honey OR a tablespoon of coconut oil.
- Scoop cookies onto cookie tray.
- Gently press the cookies down to flatten.
- Makes about 18 cookies.
- Bake for about 15 minutes.

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!
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!
I think I forgot to add the protein powder, and these still turned out great!
Yay I am so glad to hear that! 🙂
There’s no mention whats in the middle of these cookies
“”I love to add home made coconut milk whipped cream, but they are also amazing plain!””
I think that might be it, I was wondering the same.
Yep thanks Sammy! Here is the link again if it did not go through: https://renewingallthings.com/portfolio/make-coconut-milk-whipped-cream/
Here is the link to the coconut milk whip cream:) https://renewingallthings.com/portfolio/make-coconut-milk-whipped-cream/
These were amazing! I dipped mine in melted dark chocolate and coconut oil. So good! Thank you for the recipe!
YUM that sounds amazing! I will have to try that! xx
I just need the nutrition facts for this recipe please carbs, fats calories etc
Thanks Michelle – recently we’ve added the macros to every recipe, please see upper right-hand sidebar!
For some reason I can’t see the right hand side bar on my phone it’s off the screen ??
How about the macros?
Hi Kevin – recently we’ve added the macros to every recipe, please see upper right-hand sidebar!
What is the cream in the middle? It’s nit in
Hi Linda! It is coconut cream, the recipe for it is linked in the article above:)
So 3 cookies are a serving?
The link to print the recipe doesn’t work? Just kicks me out
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.
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.
Hi Julie! I would experiment with different protein powders as different ones will create different textures. I hope this helps!! 🙂
I love these and since I’m sugar and sweetener free I used date paste. They turned out fantastic.
That’s a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing:) I will have to try that!
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?
What is the fiber contents for these
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.
These are delicious. That is all I have to say. I have been watching my blood sugar, and being able to feel good about these treats is wonderful. Highly recommend this recipe!
Does this have an actual recipe? All I’m seeing is an introduction, notes, and then comments.
All recipes are on the right hand sidebar on desktop or bottom of page on mobile.
What is between them icing mix rescipe
Can I use coconut oil instead of honey?
Can I use almond flour or coconut flour in these instead of protein powder?
bum! guess ill try again, total blob but it tastes good
These look amazing and I can’t wait to make them. it would be helpful if you could put the recipe in the body of the post rather than the sidebar so it could be printed.
