Everyone needs a go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe in their back pocket. 

This is mine. 

While most chocolate chip recipes in the world consist of mainly refined flours and sugars, this one is packed with nutrient-dense ingredients and chocked full of muscle-building Trulean protein! 

You’d think with such healthy, beneficial ingredients that the cookies would turn out rather meh, or with an obvious “healthy” taste. Not so with these flavorful and pleasing morsels! 

There are a few key ingredients that are very important in achieving the ideal flavor and consistency with these power cookies. 

1. Toasted Pecans: There really are few things as inherently delicious as a toasted pecan, and I banked on that when choosing to include it in these cookies. By toasting pecans in a dry skillet and then grinding to a flour in the food processor we are able to trade fattening, refined flour for nutrient-dense, fat-burning pecans. 

2. Trulean Protein: Please, please, please don’t make these cookies with another brand of protein powder and then ask me why the flavor isn’t as amazing as I said it would be! I’m involved in the creation of our Trulean protein powder from start to finish and this means that every single ingredient and the overall flavor has been intelligently designed to work in my baking recipes. This recipe uses Trulean Frosted Vanilla Cake Grass Fed Whey Protein - my all-time favorite to use in baking. 

3. Lily’s Stevia-Sweetened Chips and Bars: How are we able to cram so much chocolatey-goodness into these cookies while keeping the sugars so low? Lily’s stevia-sweetened chocolate products, that’s how!

4. Swerve: This zero-sugar, erythritol-based sweetener replaces refined sugar in these cookies - giving you all the sweetness you crave without any of the dreaded, refined sugar grams.
