Ingredients for vegan protein cookies

Vegava is a new brand of protein that I just recently discovered and is the protein I used in this recipe. What I love about this protein is that it is 100% vegan and all-natural. The protein is made with a combination of

  • Pea protein isolate
  • Brown rice protein isolate
  • Hemp protein isolate

All of these natural ingredients provide muscle-building protein, along with amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. If you’re vegan, you probably know how valuable a quality protein powder can be when adding to recipes like this as when you are eating a vegan diet or any diet, you know how important it is to ensure you are getting the right amount of protein. That’s why I love adding protein into baking, or my recipes when I can to get that extra boost. 

Vegava has a variety of different blends to choose from but for this recipe, I used their Premium Vegan Protein in the chocolate flavor to get that sweet and delicious flavor you love in cookies. Oh and I almost forgot to mention one of the other things I love about this product, IT COMES IN COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING!!!

FAQ + Expert Tips:

Why do my cookies not look cooked? They will seem uncooked at 9 minutes but trust me you want to remove them now so they remain gooey and soft in the center.

How many cookies does this recipe make? This is entirely dependent on how big you want these to be! The recipe can yield 48 dependent on the size.

Why do you mix dry and wet ingredients separately first? You want to mix them separately to give yourself the best chance of evenly distributing the ingredients.
