How to make
Firstly, in a mixing bowl combine almond flour, old fashioned oats, seeds, and salt. Then, I mixed it well.
Secondly, I whipped in almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and almond milk.
Next, I folded in chocolate chips to it and mixed it into a dough like batter.
Thereafter, I scooped cookies on the prepared baking sheet.
Then, I made smooth round balls between my palms and placed them back on the sheet.
Lastly, I pressed each of them with the back of the bowl/measuring cup and shaped them into cookies.
We started munching on this vegan protein cookies immediately, but its best to refrigerate for about 30 minutes for them to settle and firm up.
Once they are firm and settled, place these protein cookies in a glass jar or a glass bowl and refrigerate for about 1 month.
- Make sure to follow the measurement of the liquid ingredients or else the batter might get softer. This in turn would make the binding process difficult.
- It is important to use plastic or nonstick bowl to press them so as to avoid sticking. Stainless steel cups would stick to this vegan no bake cookies.
You may use 1-2 scoop of plant based vanilla protein powder and reduce the almond flour to ¾ cups. Also, add maple syrup only as required depending on how sweet your protein powder is. To make the dough easy to bind substitute the maple syrup with almond milk.
Refrigerator works best for these no bake protein cookies. Defrosting after freezing would make them loose their texture.
Mix almond butter with almond milk and melt in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Stir and immediately mix in the batter.
