Soft baked, Chocolate Chunk Protein Cookies

These cookies might be the best thing I’ve eaten all week. They are soft, fluffy, the perfect balance of sweetness, energizing… and just so damn good I have a hard time not eating the whole batch in one sitting!

While coming up with the recipe the last thing I decided to added was the applesauce. The batter was still too dry & I didn’t want to add any more fat. Applesauce is such a staple in my healthy baking & it really helped these cookies reach the consistency I was looking for.

One suggestion, you may as well make 2 batches while you are at it because 1 batch of these delicious cookies won’t last long.
