Protein Cookie Recipe

As some of you know I’ve been on the “healthy tour” for about 6 weeks now. I am eating clean, training hard and loving it! This clean eating routine got me to try new recipes, including easy recipes for protein cookies.

Protein is a nutrient that is essential for growth and development. Protein is the second most abundant compound in the body after water and is fundamental to the structural and functional properties of all cells in our body. Our muscles are made of protein and some of our most important anabolic hormones are made of protein including insulin and growth hormone.

Proteins are involved with the metabolism of energy and nutrients in our body. In terms of sport, protein is the primary essential nutrient capable of building new muscle and repairing damaged muscle. Protein is found in both animal and plant sources, with animal sources being the best source of complete protein due to high availability of all amino acids.

      Hi Cat, thanks so much for your message. Yes you certainly can! However you can also just do it with oats only. Good luck!

      They aren’t SUPER tasty… they’re the ‘healthy’ kind of cookie and I’m not sure if kids like them.. I find them tasty but they’re not the kind of cookie kids expect…
