Hello again luvs!

Happy Friday! We all made it to the end of the week! Cookies sound like a great way to end a long week. Don’t you agree?

Before we begin we know some people will not think that some of these cookies are ‘real’ cookies and that is okay. We are learning that different things will work for others and we all should stop being so judgmental on what others may like or not like. And that if you want to eat a little sugar that is fine, but if you also want to eat stevia based cookies that is fine too. Having a balance between it all.  We plan to enjoy a little bit of everything. It is all about being happy and enjoying what you are eating.

We have mentioned a few times  that we have been working really hard on creating new and different variations (especially egg-free recipes) for our quick 8 minute cookie recipe.

How to make individual chocolate cookies with either no sugar, no egg, no grains, and/or with protein powder.

Or whatever else floats your boat 😉

Now again if you want the real McCoy check out our original recipe it is perfection!

But if you like stevia like we do and protein powder like we do then continue reading.

We have tried several times to create more recipes of our individual cookies. Had many failures, but we kept trying. Knowing that people like different things… some like starch, some hate it, some like psyllium husk, others hate it, eat eggs, some do not, like grains, or hate them, etc. So we knew we had to create a few different variations to hopefully meat most peoples needs. And ours as some days we like different things.

All of these chocolate chip cookies can make one large cookie or two smaller cookies. You can eat all yourself or share.

Note: these cookies do not have the texture of original cookies. Which makes sense right? Hard to do that with no sugar to help give it a crunchy crystallized texture. And using protein powders make it taste different as well as provide a different texture. Which if you have baked with protein powders before you already know this.

We enjoyed all our different variations! It’s fun for us to play around with ingredients to create similar yet different recipes.

individual cookies made 4 ways

We hope you enjoy our 4 different variations of individual chocolate chip cookies.  Hopefully you can find one that fits your needs and likes.

Recipe Two

bakes at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes

ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon sweet potato flour (could use almond meal or another flour of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice protein powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • about 15 -20 drops liquid stevia
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon solid coconut oil (butter or vegan butter, or ghee)
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt (or could try a puree of some sort like apple or sweet potato)
  • 1-2 tablespoons chocolate chips

directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Place raw cookie dough onto a cookie tray. Note it makes 2 cookies or one large cookie.

Baked 350 for 8-10 minutes.

And that is it! Enjoy warm out of the oven – might be a little delicate.

Now for the 2nd version with using coconut oil and husk we wanted to see if it would work without the husk and using ghee as our fat. And it did!

Recipe Three

Stevia egg-free chocolate chip cookie without psyllium husk

makes one or two cookies

bakes at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes

ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon sweet potato flour (could use almond meal or another flour of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice protein powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • about 15 -20 drops liquid stevia
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon ghee
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt (or could try a puree of some sort like apple or sweet potato)
  • 1-2 tablespoons chocolate chips

directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Place raw cookie dough onto a cookie tray. Note it makes 2 cookies or one large cookie.

Baked 350 for 8-10 minutes.

Enjoy warm out of the oven – might be a little delicate.

 

 

Now for the last version we played around with using a starch. As we like how starches work in egg-free, gluten-free baking (most of the time). We know some people do not like starches so that is why we created other recipes (ones above) that do not contain it.  We also used coconut sugar in this version to see if that helped keep a crunchy cookie  texture, it did a little. Yummy in it’s own category.  You could also try using other protein powders just note that they may require more or less liquid.

*note: for all the batters you want it to be thick, but smooth batter, not runny.

Recipe Four

Egg-free protein chocolate chip cookie

makes one or two cookies

bakes at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch (could use another starch like corn or potato)
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon almond meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon ghee (or butter) (softened)
  • 1 tablespoons yogurt (or could try a puree of some sort like apple or sweet potato)
  • 1-2 tablespoons chocolate chips

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Place raw cookie dough onto a cookie tray. Note it makes 2 cookies or one large cookie.

Baked 350 for 8-10 minutes.

Enjoy warm out of the oven – might be a little delicate till it cools.

Phew.

Now that is a lot of cookies.

Not a bad way to end the week?

Twins question: Do you tend to change up recipes frequently or do you stick to the same thing all the time?

till next time,

xoxo

  1. Oh, yum. I’ve never tried a “healthified” version of a chocolate chip cookie, but these bad boys look too good to pass up!

  2. Love the look of those grain free cookies! Yum!

    Posted on May 3, 2013 at 6:59 pm
  3. These cookies all sound amazing, and I love that you used sweet potato flour! It’s great to have a recipe for just one cookie, as we can never finish a whole batch before getting bored. I’ll have to try them all!

    1. 🙂

      Posted on May 4, 2013 at 7:51 am
  4. Yes yes yes! Cookies are most definitely a great way to end a long week. 😀 I’ll take one (or ten) or each, please! These all look wonderful; once I’m back from California I’m going to try the stevia-egg recipe.

    Happy Friday, ladies! <3 xoxoxo

    1. thanks Sara!

  6. Wow, you ladies have been busy in the kitchen! All these variations look great. Although I don’t eat a “special” diet, I do appreciate and applaud you for providing lots of healthy and great options. Keep it up and happy weekend 🙂

    Posted on May 4, 2013 at 8:09 am
    1. thanks Cara 🙂

      Posted on May 4, 2013 at 10:44 am
  7. these all look yummers!!! of course, I have a couple of questions:
    1. I’ve never used psyllium husk before – is this for the “binder” (ie egg sub)?
    2. what type of yogurt are you using? would coconut milk yogurt work?

    thanks and looking forward to giving these a whirl! oh, and yes! I love playing around with my own recipes – always adding something in, taking something out, creating different variations. this weekend I’m attempting to make a gf version of a strawberry banana bread that I saw at a farmer’s market – going to go straight-up with rice flour and see how coconut oil will work as the fat. the big ?? is trying to go without eggs – we’ll see how it comes out! (I’m sure I’ll be eating it no matter what …haha)

    Posted on May 4, 2013 at 12:18 pm
    1. yes we like to use psyllium husk to help hold things together without an egg. we used goat yogurt but yes coconut yogurt would be just fine 🙂

      Posted on May 4, 2013 at 12:20 pm
  8. I am pinning away!!!! Love that you gave all the options!

    Posted on May 4, 2013 at 2:55 pm
    1. thanks!!

      Posted on May 4, 2013 at 4:27 pm
  9. Yum! I’ll be making the first one 🙂
    I have favorite recipes, but I like to try new ones all of the time. Never know when you might hit another fave!

    Posted on May 5, 2013 at 1:22 am
  10. Yay! You girls made my night (again)! This is just what the sweet tooth ordered…just enough cookies to satisfy. 🙂 You both are so accommodating to the many and varied tastes, preferences and needs out there. It’s very generous and nothing to be criticized for!

    Posted on May 5, 2013 at 8:15 pm
  11. I notice that Perfect Fit Protein is your go-to protein powder.

    Could you give me a comparison of it’s taste? (i.e. Is it better than Heartland’s Brown Rice protein powder (if you’ve tried it, that is)? Is it better than Sun Warrior? Or maybe this is easiest:
    Does it taste chalky???!!

    Posted on May 11, 2013 at 7:08 pm
    1. It taste less chalky to us compared to SunWarrior. we have never had Heartlands so can’t say for that one. We like the overall flavor of Perfect Fit. Though everyone is different but we really like it. It has a little sweet flavor to it too.

      Posted on May 11, 2013 at 7:16 pm
  12. Hi! Your recipes are amazing, already tried a few and they were awesome. I noticed this recipe along with a few others calls for liquid stevia and I was wondering if you could use stevia powder instead and would you still use the same amount? Thanks!

    Posted on June 18, 2013 at 8:32 pm
  13. could u use brown rice flour if one does not have brown rice protein powder?

    Posted on September 12, 2013 at 12:25 am
    1. Sandra yep! Any flour would work.

      Posted on September 12, 2013 at 9:13 am
  14. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this
    site before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s
    new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I found it and
    I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

    Posted on October 15, 2013 at 1:02 pm
  15. Can you sub more sweet potato flour and/or a starch for the brown rice protein powder in the egg-free versions?

    Thanks so much!

    Posted on February 14, 2014 at 12:14 pm
    1. Molly we would recommend doing the starch like arrowroot.
