Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Protein Cookies

Happy Saturday!  It's been a busy one for us just running around doing errands but we plan to have some outside playtime after my toddler wakes up from his nap.

We are still on a healthy chocolate kick around here as you can see.  Our favorite gluten-free cookie brand seems MIA at the store lately so I've been experimenting with recipes at home.

These cookies are both soft and decadent.  I'm a soft cookie kind of gal and my kiddos seem to prefer them too.  They will definitely satisfy a sweet tooth!  My kids will have them for a snack with some fruit on the side.

Here is the recipe I used:
2 cups almond flour
1 scoop Naturade pea protein powder
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
4 oz unsweetened applesauce
1 egg
1/4 cup Enjoy Freely chocolate chips (dairy- and gluten-free)
I mixed the wet and dry ingredients separately and then combined them together.  I used 1.5 tbsp of mix per cookie.  This mix is enough for 12 cookies.  I baked the cookies at 350F for 15 minutes.

Here are the nutrition facts for these cookies:

They have a good calorie value/cookie and are low in sugar.  They go perfectly with milk too!

Hope you enjoy these cookies as much as us!
