These cookie alternatives pack a dose of healthy fat, natural sugar from dates, and a ton of protein from the collagen peptides. All these ingredients make them a much more nutritious — but still tasty — option than traditional snickerdoodle cookies.
Recipe: (Makes approximately 16 balls)
½ cup raw cashews ½ cup rolled oats 2 tbsp natural peanut butter 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted 2 medjool dates, pitted 2 tbsp maple syrup 2 tbsp chia seeds 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 2 scoops INVIGOR8 Collagen Peptides 1½ tsp ground cinnamon, divided 1 tbsp cane sugar
Line a baking sheet or large plate with parchment paper and set aside.
Place cashews and oats in the bowl of a food processor fitted with blade attachment and grind until pulverized.
Add peanut butter, coconut oil, dates, maple syrup, chia seeds, vanilla, collagen, and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon. Process until well mixed, pausing to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula as needed. If the mixture is too thick, add water 1 tablespoon at a time to help it blend together.
Wet your hands with water and roll mixture into 1 ½-inch balls. It should make approximately 16 balls.
Mix together remaining 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and the tablespoon of sugar in a small bowl. Roll balls in cinnamon sugar mixture and place on parchment paper.
Refrigerate balls until firm, about 1 hour. Store in an airtight container or storage bag in the refrigerator.
