When you have a toddler chances are everything that was once yours seems to also become theirs. Those grabby little hands are always after anything that you have and it seems like the more you like it, the more they want it.
That’s why I think it is so extra satisfying to have something that your toddler just can’t have, like a glass of wine, coffee, five minutes alone behind a locked door, or these vegan cold brew, dark chocolate chip cookies.
Don’t worry, you can still enjoy these cookies even if you are toddler free. But if you have a toddler (or little ones), remember these are ALL for you.
- 1/2 coconut oil
- 1 tbsp cold brew
- 1/4 cup egg substitute
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 1/4 cup Nuzest Coffee, Coconut + MCT Oil Protein Powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp sea salt flakes
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream the coconut oil, cold brew, applesauce and brown sugar for one minute. Slowly add in dry ingredients (oat flour, cacao powder, Nuzest protein powder, baking powder, salt) until fully mixed in. Stir in chocolate chips. Grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil. Spoon 8 equally spaced cookies onto greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-14 minutes until edges are dark and cookie bounced back when touched.
Please note, that I highly recommend not skipping out on the Nuzest Coffee, Coconut + MCT Oil Protein Powder in this recipe – it adds a nice flavor and of course a good dose of plant based protein to your cookies so you can feel a little better about eating them for five minutes behind a locked door, with your glass of wine in one hand and coffee in the other.
