To enjoy an amazingly soft chocolate nut protein cookie you’ll need:
- 200 g sweet potato
- 3 scoops Impact Whey Protein Chocolate Nut Flavour (you could alternatively try chocolate orange, toffee or another flavour)
- 1 egg (whisked)
- 25 g coconut oil (melted)
- 50 g peanut butter
- 25 g honey
- 10 Toffee FlavDrops
- 20 g unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
- 25 g chopped nuts (we used Brazil nuts and Hazelnuts)
- 2 tbsp. dark chocolate chips
It may seem like a lot of ingredients but this recipe is so straight forward you’ll be mixing up a batch of these cookies every weekend!
Peirce your sweet potatoes and bake in the oven for around 30-40 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius. To speed up this process, you can microwave the potato for 5 minutes beforehand.
Once the sweet potato is cooked, lower down your oven temperature to 150 degrees Celsius.
Once baked, allow your potato to cook, remove the skin and mash in a bowl.
To your mashed potato, add all your wet ingredients: the melted oil, whisked egg, tablespoon of honey, FlavdDrops and 3 tablespoons of peanut butter. Mix in well.
Now add your dry ingredients; the protein powder, cinnamon, baking powder, cocoa powder, nuts and chocolate chips.
Once all mixed in you will have quite a batter mix that is a bit thicker than cake mix.
Onto a tray (you’ll probably need two) add spoonfuls of the mixture into round cookie shapes.
Don’t worry if it looks a bit runnier than what you expect, this mixture is not like cookie dough.
Remove your chocolate nut cookies, allow to cool and enjoy this deliciously soft little treats!
