Today we got a wonderful vegan, gluten free cookie that is full of fiber and protein.
Chocolate Squash Protein Chia Seed Cookies
This cookie recipe was inspired by our pumpkin chocolate chip chia cookie. A reader told us she has been enjoying them, and her comment sparked our interest to revisit that cookie using another winter squash.
Then we just decided to make them chocolate instead of using chocolate chips, and added in protein powder for a protein boost.
If wanted to use a liquid sugar, reduce the coconut oil (2-3 tbsp). Add in slowly. Do not want the batter to be too runny.
Perfect Fit Protein was the protein powder we used, so remember different protein powders will react differently.
Cookies go great with milk (non-dairy milk too), but… they also taste wonderful with yogurt!
These cookies are very soft and cake-like. If you are a person who likes hard and crunchy cookies you may like these cookies better. We love both kinds of cookies hard and soft, but if we had to pick one we would go with a soft cookie.
Happy Friday friends!
till next time,
