Are Matcha Protein Cookie Dough Bites Healthy?
These cookie dough bites are made with wholesome ingredients, are full of heart-healthy fats, and are low in sugar thanks to our sugar free Collagen Matcha Latte Mix, which is naturally sweetened with monk fruit. Plus, they are naturally gluten and dairy free when you use vegan chocolate chips! These are a great homemade alternative to store-bought protein bars that can be full of weird, artificial additives.
- ¾ cup creamy cashew butter
- ½ cup almond flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar free Collagen Matcha Latte Mix
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- ½ cup vegan mini chocolate chips
- In a large mixing bowl combine cashew butter, almond flour, sugar free Collagen Matcha Latte Mix, salt, and vanilla. Mix well, until mixture resembles texture of cookie dough. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Use a small-medium sized cookie scoop to portion the dough out into about 12 balls. Refrigerate until chilled, or enjoy immediately! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Collagen Matcha Latte Mix: You can also use our unsweetened Collagen Matcha Latte Mix for this recipe- just add about ½ teaspoon maple syrup to the recipe for a little bit of sweetness.
- Cashew butter: Use a cashew butter you know you like the taste of, as it is a main component of this recipe.
- Substitutions: In a pinch, an alternative nut butter may be used in place of cashew butter, but just beware that another less mild tasting nut butter may overpower the matcha flavor!
- Texture: Different brands of cashew butter vary in their moisture/oil content which could affect the texture of your cookie dough bites. If the dough seems too wet, add a bit more almond flour. If it seems too dry, add another tablespoon of cashew butter. Refrigerating them also helps to firm them up a little bit.
