Buttery Pecan Protein Cookies

Cookie-Bowl

Fall is upon us. And what better way to celebrate the changing season than with the rich, creamy, nourishing delight of healthy cookies straight from the oven! 

We made this recipe here at our home office and it was a huge hit. They're buttery, nutty and oh-so-scrumptious! We used almond flour, but encourage you gourmands to try variations.

Be sure to share this fall-inspired recipe with friends and family!

This recipe yields approximately 12-15 cookies, so think about doubling ingredients for a bigger batch of home-cooked goodness!

INGREDIENTS:

3 scoops Life’s Abundance Plant Protein
1 c almond flour, quinoa flour or flour of choice
1/3 c chopped pecans
1/4 c honey
1-1/2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 Tbsp. butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup milk

Cookie-Sheet

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until a cookie-dough-like consistency forms. Add more milk by the tablespoon if needed.

  3. Roll dough into small balls, place on prepared baking sheet and flatten into cookies.

  4. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until edges start to turn golden.

Beagle Finagles Her Way to Oven-Baked Goodies

Lucy the beagle definitely knows her way around the kitchen.

This clever pup exhibits serious skill at claiming her next meal (apparently, a batch of chicken nuggets). Not content to move furniture at-will in order to leap up on kitchen countertops, she’s also proficient at removing pans from the toaster oven.

You’ll be amazed by how this dexterous pup pulls a reverse dine-and-dash, using her noodle to get the nuggets. We caution our canine viewers … do not try this at home. Oven, hot!

Lucy is the pet kid of Rodd Scheinerman, who originally uploaded the video last July. According to the proud pet parent’s YouTube comments, he wondered why paw prints kept appearing on the countertops. With a little detective work, he certainly got his answer!
