Coconut Protein Cookies

 

METHOD:

Begin by preheating the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, 350 Fahrenheit, Gas mark 4. 

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the coconut oil, walnuts, coconut milk and Sweet Freedom choc shot coconut and stir together to form the batter.

Using an ice-cream scoop or your hands, form the cookies. Add each onto the baking sheet and sprinkle on some raw cacao nibs. Bake for 15-20 minutes depending how crispy you want the cookies. 

Cool the cookies directly on the baking sheet for 10 minutes. If you want a naughty extra, add dark chocolate pieces to melt when baking, or why not spread some nut butter?
