Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Collagen Cookies

Print

I am notoriously awful at making up my own gluten-free cookie recipes. After many attempts, some okay and some straight up bad, I finally perfected my gluten-free cookie. I think I can honestly attribute the perfect texture to the collagen!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These cookies are a great protein-packed dessert! The use of coconut sugar is a wonderful substitution for a refined sugar. Additionally, collagen adds a great nutritional value to cookies! Collagen has many great benefits, including repairing the gut lining and keeping your hair and nails strong.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Collagen Cookies

  • Prep Time:10 minutes
  • Cook Time:10 minutes chilling, 11 minutes baking
  • Servings: 16

Ingredients

1 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup vanilla bean ghee (or butter)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (3 if not using vanilla ghee)
1 egg
1 cup almond flour
1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 scoops of Further Food Collagen Peptides
Pinch of salt
Large handful of dark chocolate chips

Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
2. Beat sugar, oil, and ghee together until light and fluffy
3. Add in vanilla extract and egg. Beat until well incorporated and fluffy – ideally you’d like it to be lighter in color and a bit airy
4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flours, salt, collagen peptides, and baking soda.
5. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
6. The dough will be pretty wet – but roll into one inch balls and place a couple inches apart on a greased baking sheet.
7. Pop the baking sheet in the freezer for about 10 minutes, or in the fridge for about 20-30.
8. Bake for 10-11 minutes (13-14 if you prefer crispier cookies). Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for at least 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool a little more and enjoy!
