CARROT CAKE PROTEIN COOKIES

CARROT CAKE PROTEIN COOKIES

One thing I hadn't made in Carrot Cake Flavor yet was protein cookies! So here are some Carrot Cake Protein Cookies with white chocolate chips. They're full of grated carrot, sweet spices, and hearty oats. These yummy cookies are also flourless, gluten-free, low in sugar, and high in protein!

Oh and I also have recipes for Carrot Cake Protein Muffins (vegan), Carrot Cake Protein Cheesecake (vegan), Spiced Carrot Cake Protein Cupcakes (made with whey), Collagen Protein Carrot Cake (Paleo), Carrot Cake Protein Donuts, and Carrot Cake Overnight Protein Oatmeal (vegan). Yes, I love carrot cake and I cannot lie!

CARROT CAKE PROTEIN COOKIES

Protein recommendations

These Carrot Cake Protein Cookies get their protein from LIV Body Lean Vegan Protein in Pumpkin Pie flavor. I just love how the spiced flavor complements all things carrot cake. This protein is also free of artificial additives and absolutely delicious! You can use my code NOEXCUSES for 20% off all LIV Body products :)

If you use whey protein instead, you may need to omit the water since vegan protein tends to be more absorbent than other proteins.

Oat recommendations

I used quick oats in this recipe. If you need this recipe to be gluten-free, be sure to use certified gluten-free oats. I also recommend buying organic since oats are one of the higher pesticide residue crops. Glyphosphate (Roundup) is also sprayed on conventional oats as a drying agent! No thank you!

Sweetener recommendations

These cookies are sweetened with a brown sugar alternative. Any calorie-free brown sugar substitute works, but I really like Truvia Sweet Complete brown sugar alternative. Other options include Lakanto Golden monk fruit, Swerve Brown erythritol, Sukrin Gold, or regular brown sugar if you don't care about the added sugar.

Other ingredients

The other main ingredients are cinnamon, baking soda, grated carrot, spices, almond butter, vegan buttery spread, and egg white.

If you're allergic to almonds, try cashew butter or sunflower seed butter! If you don't need these to be dairy-free, you can use just unsalted butter. Finally, the egg white can be substituted for one tablespoon of ground flaxseed with two tablespoons of warm water. 

The white chocolate chips are optional, but recommended! You can use dairy-free or sugar-free if needed. 

Okay, here's the printable recipe for these Carrot Cake Protein Cookies! I hope you'll rate and comment below if you try them :)

PROTEIN FERRERO ROCHERS (VEGAN)

I am feeling in the Valentine's Day spirit a little already (and always craving chocolate) so I made some vegan Protein Ferrero Rochers! They have a chocolate hazelnut filling with a roasted hazelnut in the center, surrounded by crushed vanilla wafer and coated in vegan milk chocolate. You can also roll them in crushed hazelnut like I did for extra crunch! While these aren't super high in protein, they offer a little boost. These chocolates are also lower in sugar, higher in fiber, and overall BIGGER than the world-famous Ferrero Rochers.

HIGH PROTEIN MINESTRONE SOUP

I just love a good minestrone soup. However, minestrone is lacking in protein, at least not enough to make a balanced meal... so this High Protein Minestrone Soup was born! It's got Italian spices like basil and oregano, diced tomatoes in flavorful broth, tender pasta, kidney beans, chickpeas, carrots, celery, onion, fresh garlic, and Italian seasoned ground turkey for some extra protein. This soup is comforting, nourishing, and very filling! Bonus - it's also gluten free, dairy free, and macro-friendly.
