Power Cookies

These cookies are perfect anytime: for breakfast, pre- and post- workout snacks, or even an on-the-go lunch when you’re running to and from class, work, or the gym. Packed with complex carbs, protein, fiber and healthy fats, these Power Cookies will stick with you and provide a boost of long-lasting energy.

These cookies are so versatile – swap out different flours, nut butters and sweeteners to meet your nutritional goals. Get creative with mix-ins and toppings to further customize your cookie, too!

These are some of the combinations I've tried with great success:

-Dark chocolate + walnuts

-Dried cranberries + orange zest + slivered almonds

-Toasted coconut + white chocolate

-Rainbow sprinkles

-Pumpkin spice + candied ginger

-Peanut butter chips + frozen raspberries

Whether you’re off to school, work, the gym, or just hanging out, give these cookies a try!
