How to Make Chocolate Whey Protein Cookies:

I have divided the recipe ingredients (in the card below) into two main categories “Wet & Dry”.

Hence, we start by first mixing all the dry ingredients together and keeping them aside for later use.

Then we whisk the wet ingredients together into a smooth paste.

Then we add and fold the dry ingredients into wet ingredients.

Once the cookie dough consistency is reached, we scoop the dough into cookie size dollop and add on a baking tray.

Then bake for 15 minutes.

Once baked, we cool the cookies for 3-4 minutes (if u can wait 😉
