Healthy Girl Scout Somoa Cookies

Ingredients

    Shortbread
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used Snickerdoodle PEScience)
  • 3 tbsp. almond flour
  • 3 tbsp. powdered peanut butter Peanut Butter & Co
  • 2 tbsp. vitafiber syrup*
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1-2 tbsp. warm water
    Caramel
  • 7 dates
  • 3 tbsp. peanut butter (I used Nuts 'N More Toffee Nut flavor)**
  • 2 tbsp. water
    Coconut
  • 2 tsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
    Chocolate
  • 16 dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp. coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325f and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Spread coconut evenly on the pan and bake for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and let cool while you prepare your shortbread cookies.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the protein powder, powdered peanut butter and almond flour. Add in vitafiber, melted coconut oil and warm water and mix using a fork until a dough forms.
  4. Roll dough out flat using a rolling pin and cut out 5 circles using a cookie cutter or cup. Using a smaller round object, poke a hole in the middle of the cookie and use your hands to mold it into the shape you want. Use a toothpick to poke holes in the cookies so they don't rise much.
  5. Place the cookies on the baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes.
  6. Let the cookies cool while you prepare your caramel.
  7. Place all caramel ingredients into a food processor or blender. Blend on high and stop to scrape the sides when needed.
  8. Spread a thick layer of caramel over each cookie and then sprinkle with toasted coconut.
  9. Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a small microwave safe bowl in ten second intervals.
  10. Using a spoon, drizzle chocolate over each cookie.
  11. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes before serving.

Notes

*Vitafiber can be replaced using any sticky sweetener such as brown rice syrup, honey, agave or maple syrup. **Any nut butter will work here

***MACROS are not EXACT on this recipe. It was difficult to calculate so take this into consideration when counting

Whenever I make protein powder shortbread cookies, I always use Snickerdoodle flavored protein over vanilla (vanilla will work) because it seems to give the flavor more depth–that sounds cheesy but it’s true! You can get 25% off all PEScience products using code PBCHOCO.

I know there’s a few different ways of making ‘healthy’ caramel out there. I like to use dates and nut butter, specifically Toffee Nut flavored peanut butter to give it more of an authentic caramel taste.
