The 1-Bowl Collagen Cookies to Impress at Your Holiday Party!
Your evenings have been booked all week long for various holiday parties or the kids’ school plays. Yup... 'tis the season! Oh, and not to mention you totally forgot about your work potluck tomorrow, and you are supposed to bring cookies! Lucky for you, we have a recipe that only requires one bowl, and takes less than five minutes to mix together. Now, if that isn't a Christmas miracle, then we don't know what is! On top of that, if you feel like you’ve been a little indulgent already this season, then these are the cookies for you! No refined sugar, no gluten, no dairy, but good for you foods like:
- Fibre (from oats)
- Iron (again, from oats)
- Magnesium (from chocolate... it's not always bad for you)
- Healthy fats
- Protein (from collagen powder)
Wait, did we say collagen? Yes friends, yes we did!Since collagen is flavourless, it’s an easy ingredient to add to nearly any baking! Plus, Enhanced Collagen is hydrolyzed, meaning it still maintains its health benefits even after being heated up. It is important to remember that collagen is powder, so if you’re adding it to you grandma’s famous shortbread cookies, account for adding more dry ingredients!
