Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Collagen Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies a.k.a. A Chewy Choco-Chip Cookie Dream Come True!

Hey babes!

<3

So I’ve been knee-deep into sweet potatoes lately because that’s basically all there is to eat on Passover. NO JOKE I also don’t really eat matzah because of the potential digestive issues that I choose to prevent! Anywho, I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with sweet potatoes in savoury recipes, but because of their naturally sweet flavour, they actually make for a great substitute for flour or grains in baking recipes!

And so, there I was… BAKING… and not only was I baking, but I was baking with collagen! I used 3 heaping scoops of my favourite Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides (the unflavoured ones) to dose these babes (the cookies) up with tons of gut-healing, skin-glowing, muscle-enhancing, energy-boosting collagen, protein & amino acids!

Guys, I have no idea where to begin, besides for telling you that THESE COOKIES ARE A CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE dream come true!

If I had to break down these cookies in just a few words (but Lord knows that’s a hard task for me), I’d say:

  • Gluten-free
  • Possibly vegan (if you sub the collagen for your fave vegan protein powder or almond flour)
  • Dairy-free
  • Flourless (unless of course, you opt for almond flour over collagen or protein powder)
  • Naturally sweet
  • Low sugar
  • Delicious
  • Chewy
  • Moist
  • Chocolatey & indulgent
  • Satisfying
  • Great for pre or post-workout
  • Energy-boosting

The way the chocolate chips melt & come together with the deliciously sweet mashed potatoes is HEAVENLY. The sweet potato makes these cookies TEXTURE GOALS & the chocolate chips add a creamy, indulgent, comforting touch… They taste like dessert & you’d never believe they’re healthy… but they are & you can feel good about eating ‘em!

What’s great is that these cookies are totally customizable!

  • If you want to make them vegan, swap the collagen peptides for vegan protein & almond flour.
  • If you want to make them nut-free, swap the almond butter for a nut-free alternative, such as, sunflower seed butter.
  • You can also throw in your fave add-ins if you prefer them over the chocolate chips, such as walnuts, pecans, cranberries, shredded coconut or dried fruit, or a combination of any of those ingredients!

And now… DRUMROLL PELASE... witgout further ado, let me reveal how to make these babies YOURS! YES, ALL YOURS!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato (about 2 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 3 scoops Vital Proteins collagen peptides
  • 1 tbsp. pure organic maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1 egg, whisked (or a flax or chia egg: 1 tbsp. ground flaxseed or chia seeds mixed with 3 tbsp. warm water, mixed & let sit for 10 minutes until it gels up)
  • 1/4 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips

HOW?:

  • Preheat your oven to 400F & line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Poke holes in the potatoes & & bake for 35-40 minutes or until sweet potato is soft.
    • Alternatively, you can microwave them for 8-10 minutes.
  • Let the potatoes cool once they are baked/microwaved.
  • Peel the sweet potato away from skin & place in a  bowl & mash until soft. Measure a 1-cup portion & add to a mixing bowl.
  • Whisk the egg in a small bowl.
  • Add all the other ingredients (except the chocolate chips) to the mixing bowl.
