KETO CHOCOLATE PROTEIN COOKIES
(High Protein / Low-Carb / Keto-Friendly)
When you’re craving something chocolatey, why not satisfy those cravings with something that also fuels your body with healthy ingredients?
Made using whey isolate and almond flour, these Keto Chocolate Protein Cookies by @ghostingcarbs are packed with protein and are a delicious snack or dessert. They feature our Rich Chocolate Whey Isolate Protein Powder which has natural, non-alkalized cocoa for a flavanol and mineral boost.
They are soft, fluffy, and chocolatey…but that’s not all. In addition to being high-protein, they are also low-carb and keto-friendly! So, you can enjoy a melt-in-your-mouth treat without throwing you out of ketosis or feeling like you’re “cheating”.
You can even swap out the optional frosting topping with some antioxidant-rich berries and enjoy these cookies for breakfast. Create your own nutrient-rich combo to start your day!
