Default Two Carb Protein Cookies



My latest recipe idea - high protein/low carb cookies!

I was feeling sorry for myself, missing having treats, but determined not to give in and start gaining again. So I "invented" some cookies that used only low carb ingredients I was already using, and fit my diet.

1 TBSP unsweetened whey protein powder
2 TBSP nut or soy butter (I used WOW soy butter)

That's it! I mix them together, scoop by teaspoons into 4 cookies on parchment paper, flatten with a fork, bake for 10 minutes in a 350 F oven. Set to cool, and lift carefully, they are not a firm cookie. But they melt in your mouth!

Nutritional content per cookie:
Calories - 63
Fat - 4g
Carbs - 2g
Fibre - 1g
Sugar - 1g
Protein - 5g

I wonder if a non-dairy protein powder would work in this. Mine is a little grainy but it is what I can have.

I haven't experimented, but the beauty of this recipe is you only use 1 tablespoon, so it if doesn't work it's no great loss!

Thanks. It turns out I can't have peanut butter or almond butter either so i will think on this. I wonder if I can make pecan butter.

I am using a soy butter, as I am nut-allergic.

I have thyroid and adrenal problems so I stay away from soy. I do best with pecans or walnuts so I am going to try to make nut butter with them.

Wow, you know, this sounds VERY good. Then again, I'm sort of a whey powder addict.

Hmmm - may try that with Sunbutter since I don't do soy or nuts.

Thanks Catherine.
