 Chocolate Orange Protein Cookies

METHOD:

Preheat the over to 180°C/350F/Gas mark 4.

Place the oats, chocolate protein, baking powder, chia seeds and sweetener into a large mixing bowl and combine all the ingredients together using a spoon.

Add the coconut oil, orange zest and juice and ½ cup of almond milk; stir to begin forming the cookie dough. (Use another ¼ cup of almond milk if the cookie dough is too thick).

Begin forming the cookies by rolling them into a ball and squashing them into a cookie – place them into a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.

Place chunks of chocolate on top of the cookies and bake for 12-15 minutes.
