Lemon Chai Vanilla Protein Cookies

Unknown-16

Get a little taste of summer with these super fresh protein cookies!

I just took healthy snacking to a new level!

After baking these I promoted this recipe into my top 5 favs!

If you’re a fan of poppy seed, you’ll be a huge fan of these too!

I didn’t realize how much I loved lemon until I baked these! Now I’m completely obsessed!

Lemon on everything!!

Being able to use my doTERRA essential oils is a huge plus too!

A lot of people dabble in essential oils but forget about using them in the kitchen!

Let’s get started!

You will need two mixing bowls. One for wet ingredients and the other for the dry.

First, whisk all of your dry ingredients into one bowl then set aside. Use the second bowl for the wet ingredients and slowly incorporate in your dry mixture until a dough like consistency is formed.

If it’s too sticky, place in your refrigerator to set. When the dough is ready, scoop a tablespoon amount onto a lightly sprayed baking sheet or parchment paper.

Bake at 325 for 10-12 minutes. Bake for less time if using a convection oven. Protein cooks fast so keep an eye on these babies!
