Coconut Almond Protein Cookies

Coconut Almond Protein Cookies

Serves 6 45 minute prep time

You really can’t go wrong with these cookies. We’ve taken a basic oatmeal raisin breakfast cookie, and pumped it up with Vega® Protein & Greens Coconut Almond.  Naturally sweetened with dates, this recipe isn’t as sweet as most, so feel free to add in some mashed banana or a splash of maple syrup to suit your taste. Play around with the quantities and long as it comes out looking like a cookie, success! And now you have an excuse to get baking and eat cookies for breakfast. You’re welcome.
