Recipe Details

If you’re looking for a little pre-workout treat, these cookies are great. They have a nice balance of protein, carbohydrates and fat to fuel your hardest workouts.

They’re also decadent enough to enjoy after dinner as an evening treat! Or really any time of day you need a little somethin’ somethin’.

With coconut oil and unsweetened coconut in them they’re a bit higher in fat than some of my other cookie recipes but on the flip side they’re very low in carbs, just 10 grams per cookie! I love the texture of them when stored it the freezer, they don’t freeze completely solid and the chocolate chips add a nice crunch to them!

No Baking Required

There’s no baking required but you will need to melt together some of the ingredients to make these. It only takes a minute though. Simply melt, mix, form into cookies then pop in the fridge or freezer and you’re done!
