Protein Thin Mint Cookies & Froyo

Posted in Dessert, Food & Recipes, gluten-free, Protein by nicolejanaye on October 2, 2012

The lovely ladies from Purelytwins came up with this sweet, rich cookie that satisfies any chocolate craving and packs a punch of protein. They have a few variations of the thin mint cookie on their blog, but this recipe sounded best to me. I paired a few cookies with some frozen yogurt for my pre-workout meal. This combination could really be eaten at anytime of the day, it just so happened that my sweet tooth kicked in right before I was heading to the gym.

For the frozen yogurt all I did was take a single serving sized container of Greek yogurt and stuck it in the freezer for at least 20 minutes. While that’s freezing, start making your thin mints.

Servings: 4 thin mints
Ingredients
-1/3 cup chocolate protein powder
-1/4 cup + 1 TBS cocoa
-2 TBS water
-1 TBS coconut oil
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 tsp peppermint extract
-2 packets of stevia

Directions
1. Mix all the ingredients together until it’s one cohesive mixture.
2. Scoop cookies onto a parchment covered plate and flatten out.
3. Freeze for 10+ minutes.

It’s as simple as that! Try scooping some froyo in between two cookies and make yourself an ice cream sandwich!

Hope you enjoy 🙂
