Easy Almond Butter Protein Cookies ~ GF, DF, V, LC

I’m always looking for a quick and easy protein snack that is full of healthy fats and low in sugar and carbs.  These almond butter protein cookies definitely hit the spot!

They’re made with simple ingredients and my favourite protein powder.  If you haven’t had a chance to try Nuzest, head over there and use my coupon code HAPPYHEALTH15 to get 15% off.  Plus they have free shipping on all orders over $50. 

If you’re really watching your sugar, the chocolate chips are optional but definitely makes these cookies a million times better because…chocolate…need I say more?? 

This recipe only calls for 1/4 cup which is more than plenty, yet not enough to make the sugar go through the roof.  I used almond butter but feel free to substitute with your favourite nut butter.

Let’s snack on with these healthy almond butter protein cookies!Almond Butter Protein Cookies
