Almond Butter Protein Cookies – gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, guilt free

It’s March and everywhere you look people are eating Girl Scout Cookies. EEEK! I realize it’s tradition and for a good cause but if you are trying to follow a clean eating plan or struggling with a health issue you don’t want to go this far off course. So be prepared for those cookie cravings with these delicious cookies that will satisfy your sweet tooth without wrecking havoc on your health and waistline.

Girl Scout Cookies in recent years have changed their ingredients to get rid of high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and artificial flavors but they are still full of sugar and GMO by products.  So if you its just a cookie you want and you can do without this tradition, these little gems should hit the spot.

Almond Butter Protein Cookies

These gluten-free cookies are a breeze to prepare and bake, requiring just a handful of simple ingredients. Almond butter adds a delightful flavor, while the oatmeal contributes to a satisfyingly firm texture. Notably, these cookies skip the sugar and instead feature a touch of organic stevia for sweetness without the extra carbs. Cleanup is a breeze, especially when using parchment paper. For a chocolatey twist, consider using Choc Zero’s Chocolate Chips sweetened with monk fruit. However, if you’re open to a delicious alternative, I highly recommend trying carob, which not only imparts a rich taste but also comes with some health benefits. Give it a shot – it might just become your new favorite. And hey, if you’re in the mood for a delightful treat, our chocolate cookies delivery service has got you covered!

These cookies are not detox friendly for my Two-Week Detox Plan but they are definitely a great addition to any Lifestyle Diet Plan and can be worked in as a dessert or snack.  These travel well also so pop them into a baggie and take them with you to avoid snacking on those Girl Scout Cookies!
