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!!!
