Second recipe from Kay to complete the second part of her two part series… This definitely fits the Valentines theme for today. Enjoy!!
Preheat oven to 350
1 cup almond meal/flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 T vanilla extract
¼ cup agave
1 T baking powder
1 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder (I used chocolate mint)
Form into cookies (I made ten BIG whoopie pie sized cookies, but you can easily make more cookies if you make them Oreo sized). Warning: dough is REALLY sticky!
Bake for 10 minutes.
While they are baking, you can make the frosting for the middle. I altered the recipe from what I was given as it ended up being too thin and less frosting-like.
Whisk ¼ cup of egg whites with a fork until fluffy. Then add in one scoop of vanilla casein (I didn’t have vanilla so I used chocolate) and continue to whisk. This should yield a pudding consistency. Spread between two cookies to make a sandwich and enjoy!
