Coconut Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies

I received several products from Carrington, T-fal, and Krups to facilitate this post.

My whole family enjoyed these delicious chocolate chip cookies.

  I found this recipe on the Carrington Farms website and I love all the healthy ingredients in it. The added protein powder from the coconut protein blend is a plus. These cookies have a wonderfully soft texture and plenty of flavor. The use of wheat flour adds some nutrition and the milled flax is loaded with omegas. I accidentally used kosher salt instead of regular salt and this made the cookies taste like salted chocolate. I think from now on I will use kosher salt in my chocolate recipes as I love salted chocolate.

              I received several products from Carrington, T-fal, and Krups to facilitate this post.

This recipe gave me a chance to try out the new mixer that I just got! This KRUPS' 10 Speed Hand Mixer helped me mix up my ingredients so quickly.  I just love that all the attachments store in a container that attaches to the mixer! No more having to find the beaters when I want to use my mixer!

Love baking on this T-fal AirBake Cookie Sheet! I get better browning, decreased bake times, and practically NO BURNING.

  • 1¼ cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • ¾ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt

  1. loved the recipe. so doable for a chocolate loving family here.

  2. Hands up I love chocolate and any reason to have something with it in I am up for (so bad). But that aside I definitely need to try these, I bet the coconut works so well with it.

  3. I have those same baking sheets. Love them. As far as I'm concerned, the addition of coconut will make just about any dish all the better. LOL, I'm the only one in our household that does love it, so when I make a batch of these cookies they will be just for me, myself and I!

  4. Coconut and chocolate is such a delicious combination. I would never say no to cookies that have both inside them.

  5. um what?! This sounds so good and no guilt because it's got protein!

  6. I absolutely love the ingredients used for these cookies. Glad to hear Carrington Farms has such awesome recipes available!

  7. I am in love with this protein packed cookie recipe. There's nothing better than being able to eat a cookie for more protein!

  8. I love the look of that new mixer! I need a new one too so now I'm keeping my eyes peeled for one like that!

  9. It looks yummy..I want to try this today,can't wait more

  10. I like coconut in my food. I cooked chicken curry last night and put coconut in it.
