Pumpkin Chocolate Vanilla Protein Cookies


It's pumpkin season! And I've got a protein, fiber and fat-powered cookie for you!

These Pumpkin Chocolate Vanilla Protein Cookies are MY kind of Hallowe'en candy!


Because they not only taste incredible in the moment, you continue to feel awesome in the moments and hours afterward! WIN!

Having some delicious homemade baking on hand when the conventional treats are FLOWING at particular times of year, means I never feel deprived of celebrating, too!

Baking options that incorporate our 3 macros (protein, fiber and fat) sit so well and fuel us SO DIFFERENTLY than high-sugar, conventional baking options.

This recipe is just that!

A source of...

Protein: SMOOV™'s Vanilla Cream protein powder, eggs, and a touch of protein in the mixed nut/seed butter

Fiber: organic pumpkin purée, mixed nut/seed butter

Fat: eggs, coconut oil, mixed nut/seed butter

And, not overly sweet either! I rely on minimal amounts of sweetness in my baking because a little bit goes a long way, and so many recipes out there could do with a small fraction of what they note, if at all.

When protein and fat drive a recipe, like this one, the satiation factor is AMPLIFIED, as protein and fat take far longer to digest than carbohydrate sugars.

This means you feel fuller, satiated and content, for LONGER. YES!

Have you heard of Canadian small business SMOOV™?

They have an incredible line of All-In-One Plant Based Blends (protein powders), as seen above with their Vanilla Cream variety, and the flavour, taste and mouth-feel are OUT OF THIS WORLD!

What I love about these blends is that they pack 20 grams of plant-based protein per serving (pea, pumpkin seed and mung bean), along with freeze-dried produce and superfood sources, to yield a nutrient-dense + energizing fuel source!

The freeze-dried additions are highly anti-inflammatory ingredients, including sunflower seed powder, kale, spirulina, moringa leaf, goji berry, acerola cherry, pink pitaya, beet, blackberry, maqui berry, carrot, banana, maca, vanilla powder and some monk fruit extract (a natural sweetener that does NOT spike blood sugar levels).

They also do a fabulous job of their Superfood Powders and Superfood Blends!
