I'm a total advocate for tapping into our interests and learning new things. Because of this, I've gained countless skills and turned hobbies into businesses. One of these hobbies is Baking. I've recently been making a mess in the kitchen so that I can give you guys delicious recipes that don't add inches to your waist line. However, just because these cookies are better for you then other ones, it's not an excuse to eat the entire batch in one sitting.
I'm a huge believer in eating what you want WITHIN moderation. The same is true for my recipes. The good news is you don't have to feel guilty by eating them and the ingredients you're putting into your body are clean, easily digestible and have some other bonuses, as well.
These cookies have bonuses? Yes!!! They do!! By adding collagen peptides, maca powder and goji berries to the mix, I've turned these cookies into a powerhouse of nutritional goodness. These cookies are packed with protein, collagen, energy boosting and mood enhancing superfoods that also fight the aging process.
If you are on a vegan diet, please be aware that the collagen used in these cookies is sourced from grass-fed, pasture raised bovine hide. If you are vegan and want to experience the benefits of collagen, you can look into collagen builders as an alternative.

KETO CHOCOLATE CHIP COLLAGEN COOKIES
Makes Approximately 12 Cookies
2 tbsp Organic Cashew Butter
3 tbsp NuttZo Organic butter (or any other nut butter you like)
1 Organic Egg
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Organic Coconut Flour
3/4 cup Lily's Baking Chips
1 1/2 tsp Organic Maca Powder
1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Raw Honey
Handful of Goji Berries
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
In a medium sized bowl, add cashew butter, NuttZo butter, egg, maple syrup and honey. Mix ingredients together thoroughly till all clumps are gone and the mixture is even.
Add tapioca starch, coconut flour, maca powder to the wet ingredients
Mix both dry and wet ingredients thoroughly together until they create a thick batter. Try to get rid of any clumps.
Add Lily's baking chips and goji berries and thoroughly mix them into the batter
Refrigerate batter for 15-20 minutes
Make sure batter feels solid enough to turn into cookie balls before removing from fridge
Once mixture feels solid enough to scoop into little balls, make small scoops and place on baking tray with enough room between the cookies so that they don't stick together
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes
Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool for at least 5-10 minutes
I hope this recipe brings you as much joy to make as it did for me to create it. Spread the love and if you have any special recipe requests that you want turned into a healthier version of the original, let me know! I'm always looking for inspiration!
