Soft baked, Chocolate Chunk Protein Cookie Cups

Before diving into the recipe of these amazing & healthy cookies, remember to check out my Instagram, @thekellydiet for more recipes not on the blog!

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

These cookies are made with 3 flours, one being Sprouted Spelt Flour.

I love sprouted flour because you get additional nutritional benefits, without compromising flavor or taste. That is because the dormant vitamins & minerals in grains are activated & brought to life during the sprouting process. In addition, sprouting also breaks down the grains’ natural protective barrier, making them easier to digest.

The last thing I decided to added to this recipe 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.

So, let’s get baking!
