Protein Packed Snickerdoodles

    I'm always looking to find healthier ways to make old classics. This one was super simple. I just substituted the flour with protein powder. What protein powder? I used Vital Strength " brand, but I haven't tried other types, but I'm sure they'd be fine to o.

    • 1 cup butter, melted
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 3/4 cups of protein powder
    • 1 tsp cream of tartar
    • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
    • 3 tbsp sugar (sugar alternatives are fine)
    • 3 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 tsp nutmeg
    • 1tsp vanilla/vanilla essence (I omitted this as I found the vanilla protein powder I used to be adequate vanilla flavouring)


    1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius (350 F)
    2. Mix melted butter, 1tps of vanilla extract and eggs thoroughly in a large bowl.
    3. Combine protein powder, cream of tartar, bicarbonate soda and salt in a separate bowl.
    4. Blend dry ingredients into butter mixture.
    5. Chill dough, and chill an ungreased cookie sheet for about 10-15 minutes in the fridge (You may find this unnecessary).
    6. Meanwhile, mix 3 tablespoons sugar, and 3 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl.
    7. Separate mix into 4, and roll into balls of dough. Roll them into the sugar/ cinnamon mixture.
    8. Coat by gently rolling balls of dough in the sugar mixture.
    9. Flatten them into biscuit (cookie) shapes.
    10. Place on chilled ungreased cookie sheet, and bake 10 minutes.
    11. Remove Immediately and allow to cool.


    Because of the light and fluffy texture of these biscuits they make great dunking into your coffee at morning tea time. And unlike most commercial biscuits, they don't become super soggy, and end up breaking off easily into your coffee. Enjoy:)
