Turmeric Collagen Cookies (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

These cookies do not contain gluten, dairy or egg.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I love turmeric.  I enjoy this spice in lattes and smoothies.  It has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties so it's a good addition to your diet.  

It was a matter of time before I found a way to enjoy my turmeric in a cookie.  If you are gluten-free like me you probably know how hard it is to get healthy snacks on the go.  These turmeric collagen cookies are flavorful and healthy with a decent amount of protein to keep you full.  

Here's what you need to make these at home:


2 cups Bob's Red Mill almond flour
1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill coconut flour
1/4 cup tahini 
1 banana (mashed)
2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp water (2 flax eggs)
1 scoop Vital Proteins collagen peptides
1 tsp turmeric
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cardamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Peel and mash the banana.  Incorporate the rest of the wet ingredients and mix well.  In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.  Combine the wet and dry ingredients.  Use 1.5 tbsp mix/cookie.  You can flatten the cookies with the help of a fork.  They will be a little sticky but don't worry about it.  Bake the cookies for 15 minutes at 350 F.  Let them cool on a rack and enjoy!

These cookies made my kitchen smell amazing while they were baking.  They are soft and have a fudge-like texture.  They are not doughy or crumbly.  

Here are the nutrition facts for these cookies: 

I love their calorie amount per serving.  They make the perfect snack!  Note too how they are low in carbs and sugar but have a decent amount of protein per cookie. 

I hope you enjoy these cookies too!
