Protein Power Cookies

Since reading Brendan Brazier's book, The Thrive Diet, I have been kind of obsessed with packing as much nutrient dense food into my life as possible. That being said however, I am still learning my way around the kitchen, and so when my Protein Power Cookies turned out to be a hit, not only last night, but on today's 1.5 hour bike ride to UBC, I am literally chomping at the bit to whip up the next batch.
They are all natural and will provide you with just the right amount of proteins, fats, carbs, and sweetness to curb a sugar craving, or power you up for a training session.

Here's what you need:
3 T flax seeds (ground into meal)
3/4 c almond milk
2 c old fashioned oats
1/4 c sunflower seeds, chopped almonds & chocolate chips
1/2 c raisins
1/2 c protein powder (i use Vega Vanilla Chai)
3 T honey
3/4 t salt
1/4 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a cookie sheet with small amount of oil... Mix flax seeds into almond milk and set aside... Combine all other ingredients in a bowl and then add milk... Stir it up good- you may feel like it's a little dry- it's not... Form into 8-12 balls and place in oven for 6-8 minutes... Remove from oven and let them cool completely.

  1. hey! I am going to make these this weekend, they look so good! But I cant find Vega here. What do you think about the Brown Rice protein powders you can get as that seems to be the only gluten and dairy free protein powder I can find here.
