A little twist on my traditional chocolate chip protein cookies. These are also super cute if you wanted to add in a little red & green sprinkles on the top before baking to make them extra festive!
Making a holiday festive cookie that is also healthier is a win win and no one will know they are protein cookies they taste so good. These are perfect for office parties and family get togethers. Besides that……Santa told me he wants these cookies from you this year and you can’t disappoint the big guy!

1C Dark chocolate chips
2-1/4C Almond flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4C raw honey
1/2C organic butter OR unsweetened applesauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all dry ingredients- except the chocolate chips, in a large mixing bowl. Combine all wet ingredients in a smaller mixing bowl.
Using a hand mixer, mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients until well combined. Fold in the dark chocolate chips.
Chill the dough in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. Use a medium sized cookie scoop or drop 1-1.5 tablespoon size balls of dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet
Bake cookies for about 8-9 minutes watching carefully. Bottoms will become a light golden brown. Tops will not brown much at all. Remove and let cool 5 min then place onto cooling rack.
