chocolate chip protein flax cookies

by purelytwins

We have been very productive these past few days of being together again. For those that asked – we do not live in the same city anymore, it happened for a few reasons but rest assured we are both doing great.  We have been enjoying lots of yummy foods lately. Dangerous when both of us  are in the kitchen together 😉 Even though we have been loving eating our not so normal daily eats we are excited to get back to our simple meals.  A few people of asked when our little cookbook will be done, we hope soon as we are finally done making all the recipes and taking pictures. Now its editing and designing time of the book. We are working around the clock to get it done here very soon!

Just like there could  not be any more baked chocolate chip cookie recipes out there. There are plenty of  raw chocolate chip cookie recipes too. There must be just something about eating raw cookie dough.  Or having a nice warm gooey soft cookie that just melts in your mouth that everyone loves.

We actually created these cookies the last time Michelle was in town, and finally got around to making them one more time -you know…to make sure they were super yummy.

We already have two raw chocolate chip cookie recipes that we just love, so why make another one? Well we wanted one that had a little more protein and fiber! Plus we like trying to create new recipes using different ingredients as not everyone has the same likes or ingredients on hand.

These  are raw cookies  that are super easy to make!  Just blend and scoop and enjoy! For a warm cookie you can place in the dehydrator.

You can do  these cookies baked too!  As we have shown here on wax paper. Came out just as lovely.

mmm protein flax cookies

These raw cookies are soft, chewy from the coconut and flax meal. With a power protein punch from the addition of protein powder.We based the cookies out of raw buckwheat groats for more fiber and protein. If you do not have buckwheat groats you coud use oat flour. When we were making these cookies we actually wanted a cookie that did not have nuts in them. We have nothing against nuts, we just wanted to see if we could make a raw chocolate chip cookie without always using nuts.

So having the mix of coconut flakes, buckwheat groats, protein powder and flax meal provided enough texture that we were hoping for in our nut-free raw cookies.

Also like some of our recipes these cookies are not overly sweet, you can really taste all the different flavors and textures happening.

Never enough cookies around.

Although these cookies are slightly soft they are sturdy!

hopefully you two are not TOO far away from each other… 🙂

these cookies look awesome, I can’t wait to taste them!

Michelle @ Eat Move Balance November 16, 2012 - 11:23 am

I love healthy cookies! What would you recommend in place of buckwheat flour though? I have whole wheat, coconut, oat, almond or quinoa flour at home. But because I’m not very knowledgable about the science of baking, I’m always hesitant about what can swap for what. Thanks!

purelytwins November 16, 2012 - 4:08 pm

Michelle I think oat would be fine, almond flour should work too, just add in the liquids slowly

Kris | November 16, 2012 - 12:19 pm

Yum, I can’t wait to try these!! Thanks lovies for always waving gorgeous goodies in our faces 🙂 xxoo

Meagan November 16, 2012 - 12:37 pm

WOW – these look fab! I might sub out the buckweat for some almond flour and make these!!

yum yum! who DOESN’T love a good chocolate chip cookie…if i omit the protein powder do you think they will stick together?

purelytwins November 16, 2012 - 4:07 pm

you could try, and add in the liquid ingredients slowly.

Danielle @ Clean Food Creative Fitness November 16, 2012 - 1:01 pm

These cookies look awesome! You never disappoint with awesome desserts! Plus the added protein in them is awesome!

thanks Danielle xoxo

Lauren November 16, 2012 - 2:09 pm

The cookies look amazing! QUestion: can you use any gluten free flour instead of buckwheat groats or does it have to be oat flour?

purelytwins November 16, 2012 - 4:06 pm

You can try – if you bake it might work well, not sure how it would be raw, but always worth a shot.

Ed November 16, 2012 - 2:32 pm

Looks good! Got any left over? hehe

Love the looks of these! I’m sure the coconut flavor really comes through too…with the flakes and oil.

Wow these look and sound so good and love that even though you already have a few recipes for them that you don’t rest and keep trying new ways/recipes!

Hi there, I just made these and they came out great. Wanted to let you know I had success subbing 2 T of chia seeds and 1/2 T of coconut flour for the flax meal. I realized I was out of flax after I’d already started making them! They held together perfectly after baking. Thanks for the yummy recipe. Leslie

purelytwins November 19, 2012 - 11:09 am

Leslie so happy to hear you enjoyed the cookies and that your changes worked!

Kat November 20, 2012 - 2:37 am

Yum! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. I was wondering what your favourite rice protein powder is? I’m always looking to switch it up 🙂

purelytwins November 20, 2012 - 8:42 am

lulu PINELO November 30, 2012 - 11:20 am

purelytwins November 30, 2012 - 8:06 pm

lulu PINELO November 30, 2012 - 8:35 pm

Joyce Barron January 23, 2013 - 7:24 pm

I am looking for a great raw recipe for the old fashioned no bake cookies we ate at kids. Do you have one?

Mandy April 3, 2013 - 5:59 pm

Sounds great! How long do you recommend dehydrating the cookies?

hypermagda June 23, 2014 - 4:27 pm

Delicious and incredibly easy to make! The dough is not sticky at all and it’s very easy to shape into cookies. I dehydrated them for about 16 hours and they truly have the consistency of “real” choc chip cookies. Thank you for this brilliant recipe! BTW I used oatmeal and not buckwheat and substituted stevia&maple with agave because it was the only liquid sweetener I had at home….

purelytwins June 23, 2014 - 4:40 pm

glad you liked the recipe!
