Pretty sure this was a Pinterest find on my end, trying to find different ideas for eating Casein protein in the evening for my last meal of the day. If you haven’t heard of Casein, it’s a type of protein powder. It’s a little different than the whey protein we recommend after a workout, being as it is a slower absorbing protein. That’s why it’s more suited for consuming in the evening.
So I went searching for a delicious recipe that would curb any sugar cravings and feel like a “treat while sticking to my required macros.
Here they are! Chocolate chip casein cookies! Now, these could easily be change to chocolate peanut butter flavor or straight up chocolate, so you guys can put your own twist on these!
1 scoop Vanilla casein (or chocolate if you want!)
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp baking powder
Dash of cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp nut butter (of your choice)
Whatever toppings you choose!
Preheat oven to 350°
Mix dry ingredients together in mixing bowl.
Add water slowly
Add your nut butter (I would suggest you measure this, I eyeballed it once and it was double what I was supposed to add!)
If you want to make them peanut buttery, use peanut butter, if you want to make them more like cookie dough, use almond butter.
Using a baking sheet with parchment paper, evenly distribute mixture (it will make about 5 good sized cookies)
This step is totally optional, but I like to sprinkle a little dark chocolate on top, but again, you guys can leave this out, or add something different!
I leave these in the oven for about 25-30 min, or until they get golden brown on top.
After that, time to enjoy!
You guys are probably curious as to what the macro count on these are:
Not bad for 5 cookies!
