Monday came way too quickly this weekend and to top it off the weather is crap! Melbourne is slowly moving into winter. After spending the last 3 month in 30-40 degree weather, I cannot handle the cold right now. Got to work at 6 am for my first client today who brought me a box of frosties.. FROSTIES!!! I haven’t been able to find frosties in the supermarkets in Melbourne since arriving in Australia. They are my favorite cereal to have on my re-feed days and she clearly got fed up of my whining and got me some! Absolute BABBBEE!!
So my re-feed day is not until Saturday 🙁 and with a massive sweet craving I decided to bake some goodies.. These cookies are soooooooo yummy! They are low fat with no refined sugar. With just 70 calories per cookie.. (6g carbs, 1g protein and 4g fat)
Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 100g oats
- 50g dessicated coconut
- 2 eggs
- 1 scoop of protein powder (I used Optimum Nutrition Vanilla Ice Cream)
- 10 drops of English toffee stevia
- 30g of dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Pre heat oven to 180 degrees. Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a bowl and stir until an even dough is formed. Mold 13 balls with hands and place on a baking tray. Carefully flatten balls and put 4-5 chocolate chips on each cookie, pressing them in to the dough. Bake in the oven for around 10 minutes.
