This Mint Chip Protein Cookie Dough will satisfy a craving for something sweet in a low-sugar and protein-rich way. Enjoy it straight out of the jar or use it as a dip on apples and celery.
Healthy fats from almond flour and cashew butter give this recipe its dough-like texture without the need for eggs, and vanilla protein powder adds satiating protein for good metabolic health. Almond flour is also rich in fiber which benefits digestion and blood sugar regulation, as well as antioxidant vitamin E. I added a little peppermint extract for an extra dose of flavor.
Wishing you health and happiness,
