    KT9791's Note:

    These are a great alternative to fat filled traditional cookies. Only 110 calories in 2 cookies! From Jay Robb, a health nut who makes hormone-free whey protein and other additive-free protein products. Can be made vegan.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/4 cup butter or 1/4 cup coconut oil
    • 1 egg (or egg replacer)
    • 1/2 cup Stevia Truvia (I use palm sugar)
    • 1 cup blanched almond flour
    • 3/4 cup jay robb vanilla whey protein (soy or rice)
    • 1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)


    1. 1
      In a large bowl, cream butter, egg, and sweetener together until very smooth. Add egg and mix until well combined. Sift the baking soda, cinnamon, salt and Jay Robb Whey Protein into the almond flour. Then slowly add almond flour mixture into butter mixture. Mix until well combined. Form into a tight ball and cool in fridge until chilled.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place dough onto non-stick surface (I used parchment paper), then top with another piece of non-stick surface (again, I used parchment paper). Roll dough out to approximately 1/4 inch thickness. Cut dough with Christmas cookie cutters, and place onto baking sheet.
    3. 3
      Bake for 7 minutes, or until lightly browned. Then turn off oven and leave cookies in for an additional 10 minutes. This will create a crispier cookie. Set the cookies out to cool and top with your favorite cream cheese frosting! Makes 2 dozen cutouts.

      Not to be insulting, but whey protein is not vegan, try soy milk powder or soy protien powder instead, also when using egg substitutes, it has been my experience that you use the equivalent of 1 egg (as listed on the instructions) but also adding in 1 TableSpoon of Applesauce will help the recipe stay at the consistancy desired (Trust me, I have made way too many dried out vegan cookies for a lifetime).

      They sound great, but these are NOT VEGAN. An egg is not a vegetable.
