Chocolate Protein Nuggets - Low Sugar

A cookie that is more like real food! That was my goal when I created this cookie for my extremely picky son. Stevia brings the sugar way down; flax seed and whole grains brings nutrition up, chocolate makes it yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine first 8 ingredients in a medium bowl using a wire whisk. Whisk together rest of ingredients, except chocolate chips, in a large bowl using a whisk. Whisk until sugar is dissolved. Add dry to wet in thirds combining with a sturdy mixing spoon after each addition. Mix in chocolate chips. Will be very stiff!
  3. Lightly spray a cooking sheet with non-stick spray. Drop balls the size of a large walnut spacing 1-2 inches apart. Flatten slightly as the cookies will not spread much. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  4. Note: My protein powder is sweetened with sucralose. I don't know how much sweetness it contributes or if you will need to adjust the recipe for unsweetened protein powder.
