Recipe: Almond and Vanilla Protein Cookies


Almond and Vanilla Protein Cookies

We’re always looking for healthy versions of our favourite treats as both of us have a bit of a sweet tooth. It’s not always easy when you’re trying to be good and stick to a reduced sugar and fat diet so we were happy to come across a recipe by Jessica Spiel in her book, The Healthy Life. These cookies are a great way to get your sweet fix without feeling like you’ve overindulged. We’ve adapted it slightly to cater for what we had available in our cupboards, but I can assure you they turned out delicious.
