I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar…and have no shame about it. 🍪😛

I’m all about functional treats with top-quality, real-food ingredients, and I’m obsessed with seasonal flavors, so naturally I had to bake whip up some of these Grain-Free Maple Pecan Protein cookies this weekend!

They’re a tasty, guilt-free treat packed with protein, thanks to my favorite paleo-friendly protein powder from Paleo Pro! Also, if you’re wanting to cut back on sugar, I include some low-carb swaps in the recipe below!

Also, if you’re not a fan of nuts, instead of reaching for almond of coconut flour, I used my newfound favorite grain-free alternative cassava flour instead!

Enjoy!

Grain-Free Maple Pecan Protein Cookies Recipe

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While it’s heating up, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Mix up your “wet” ingredients (ghee, maple syrup, and vanilla extract). I used my Blendtec!

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the “dry” ingredients: cassava flour, protein powder, baking soda, sea salt.

  4. Add the “wet” ingredients to the “dry” ingredients, and stir until combined.

  5. Place the mixture onto the parchment paper using a tablespoon and leaving about 1/2” between cookie dough balls. Flatten out slightly with a spoon or a fork. This recipe will yield about 15 cookies.

  6. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before enjoying! I drizzled mine with Fourth & Heart’s Passionfruit Chocti - it’s such a perfect pairing! Store remaining cookies (if there are any 😜) in an airtight container in the fridge.

If you want to reduce the sugar content in a batch of these cookies, use Lakanto’s monkfruit maple syrup in place of maple syrup, and try creating your own low-carb chocolate drizzle using melted coconut oil or ghee combined with raw cacao powder!
