RECIPE: Protein oat carrot cookies

As most of my recipes are, this one is pretty flexible, but I am sharing with you my personal favourite oatmeal carrot cookie. 

Makes: 14 cookies
Total time: 1 hour

1 cup of oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder (unflavoured powder would probably work too - let me know if you would like a post on what protein powders are best to buy)
1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 & 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp. coconut oil (melted and cooled slightly)
1 egg
1 grated carrot
1/2 cup maple syrup (I recommend myprotein 0% maple syrup - here)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
A tiny pinch of salt


Grate your carrot.

In a bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt (the dry ingredients).

Melt the coconut oil and let cool slightly.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, egg, and vanilla. Then stir in the maple syrup until thoroughly incorporated.

Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated.

Then fold in the carrots.

Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 160°C, and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Drop the cookie dough into about 14 scoops on the baking sheet and flatten slightly (they don't really rise so don't flatten too much).

Bake for 12-15 minutes; then let cool.

& Enjoy!
