Protein Cookies

If you want to be lean, you need protein. If you are working out in gym, you need protein. If you want energy, you need protein. Our modern lifestyle is not very convenient for making steaks every day, and if you are vegetarian your options are limited too. The recommended daily protein intake is 0.8 g per 1 kg of human’s weight. So, for someone with 60kg weight, you need to consume 48 g of protein every day for an average active life style.

The protein cookies you see on the picture are not sweet, and they are not just savoury, they have a special flavour. This recipe has about 120 g of protein in total. I love these cookies, as they can be eaten on its own for snacking or with hot beverages or even with Paleo broth.
