5 Ingredient Protein Coconut Cookies

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!

          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!

    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.

    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.
