You guysssssssssss. Oh. My. Goodness. I had the BEST weekend. How was yours?!

I went up to Milwaukee for a wedding and drove around Marquette’s campus (p.s. it’s SO different than 5 years ago), caught up with a bunch of college friends who I haven’t seen in over a year (!!), brunched – hard, and also did some shopping at Under Armour on the way (<— I seriously have an unhealthy UA addiction).

Before I hit the road, I made three batches these paleo protein cookies to make sure I had them just right. And lucky for me, I’ve got 3 batches of these bad boys at home 😉 ahhhh the benefits of recipe testing!

Now that I am eating a paleo diet, baking has become difficult. Experimenting with different flours and fats has been an adjustment; but I seriously love the texture that almond flour gives to baked goods. The almond flour makes these cookies really light and fluffy – almost a cakey texture that is so so good.

And to make these extra special, I added a big scoop of Nuzest Clean Lean Protein – Just Natural flavor. I’ve used the Smooth Vanilla flavored pea-based protein in recipes before, but have been experimenting with the flavorless version to give my recipes an extra boost!

Each double almond paleo protein cookie is only 180 calories and contains 7 grams of protein! That’s my kind of dessert.

      Thanks Jess! They are SO good. I’ve been eating them with a little extra almond butter on top… does that make them TRIPLE ALMOND?!

      Hi Lara! I just did a quick nutritional calculation using My Fitness Pal and they came up as 183 calories, 11 grams of carbs, and 8 grams of protein per cookie!

    Ellie, sorry for the delay in response…I just now saw your answer. Thanks so much!

    Question: any way you can think of to lower the carb count for those of us that are on weight- loss?

    THAT would be awesome! 🙂 🙂
