Fat burning, metabolism boosting cookies

Recently i seem to get very bloated when I have wheat products, so things like bread, cakes, cookies..although not really a fan of them to begin with but i do enjoy an occasional slice of cake or a delicious blueberry muffin. However, I can’t enjoy them anymore because I end up feeling very bloated and uncomfortable.  So I’ve been experimenting on wheat free + gluten free + sugar free baking and so far, its been an interesting journey!

I came across this delicious recipe from theheartysoul.com, check them out, they have amazing recipes. I did however amend the recipe to suit my needs.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups coconut flakes (i make my own)
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 scoop whey protein (I use ON Gold Standard, 100% whey )
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • A few other secret ingredients but you can make the cookies without these 🙂

method:

  • Heat your oven at 180 degrees Celsius
  • Mix all your ingredients in a bowl
  • If the mixture is too crumbly add some more oil and water but make sure its not too watery
  • Once everything is mixed in well, scoop out the mixture using a teaspoon, one cookie is about one heaped teaspoon. Flatten the cookies on the tray
  • I got about 12 good sized cookies. The number will depend on the size. Don’t make them too thick.
  • Set your timer for a total of 15 minutes but turn the cookies half way so you can get a good color on both sides
  • The outside will turn brown and inside will remain soft and moist
  • Let them cool and enjoy. The are great for breakfast, pre and post workout snacks
