Chocolate Sunflower High Protein Cookies

Post by Jo @ Including Cake & Julie @realfoodsource

It's been a while since we've had a proper cookie recipe and with the new sunflower seed protein powders now in store it seemed a good time to get experimenting with a chocolate version!

These cookies have a great crunch factor... this is down to using the coconut sugar over syrup. I always find that cookies with a 'wet' sweetener are always softer than the 'dry' sugar versions, still lovely- but something to be aware of if a crisp cookie is more your thing!

I used the 55% sunflower seed protein powder which has a neutral flavour and is an excellent high protein flour substitute, it is perfect for recipes where you don't want to risk a flavour clash, but you could use either type, you will just get more of a sunflower taste with the 45% protein powder.

These cookies are low carb, packed with protein and perfect healthy treat, give them a go and enjoy!
