Cake Batter Cookies

I recently got to try some super fun protein from Protein Milkshake Bar.  I got the cupcake batter flavor and immediately knew what I wanted to make!
Cake Batter Cookies!!

Super simple as always...
You will need cake flavored protein, canned white beans, egg substitute, unsweetened applesauce, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla, baking powder, and sweetener of choice.  
*You can use chickpeas, garbanzo, navy, great northern, or butter beans*

A lot of different brands have cake flavored protein so feel free to experiment.  
Protein Milkshake Bar whey baked really well and tasted great!

Drain and rinse your beans first.  Then puree the beans, egg, milk, applesauce, and vanilla.  
Stir in remaining ingredients.  

The batter will be very wet so I highly suggest using a baking mat or parchment paper.  
Drop the batter onto your cookie sheet.  I got 10 little cookies.  

Don't forget the sprinkles!!!
Remember...sprinkles don't have calories :) At least not calories worth counting!!

Preheat the oven to 350 and bake for 10-15 minutes.  
All ovens and protein powders bake differently so keep a close eye on them! You don't want to over bake or they will get dry.  

Just take a minute to admire that cookie stack!
Something about sprinkles...they always make baked goods look extra yummy!

These cookies are so soft! The beans give them a great texture!
They are also super healthy! No sugar (remember, sprinkles don't count), no flour, and gluten free.  Packed with protein and fiber! 

As always, I consider all 10 cookies to be one serving!! 
The entire batch is only 233 calories! 

That is only about 23 calories per cookie!!
But for real... no body eats just one cookie...

Still skeptical about baking with beans?!
I promise you cannot taste them!! Test em out on your kids, your husband, and your friends! They will not be able to guess the ingredients!! 

One more glorious shot!

  1. Would they work with eggs instead of substitute?
