About Vegava Protein
Vegava is a new brand of protein that I just recently discovered and is the protein I used in this recipe. What I love about this protein is that it is 100% vegan and all-natural. The protein is made with a combination of
All of these natural ingredients provide muscle-building protein, along with amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. If you're vegan, you probably know how valuable a quality protein powder can be when adding to recipes like this as when you are eating a vegan diet or any diet, you know how important it is to ensure you are getting the right amount of protein. That's why I love adding protein into baking, or my recipes when I can to get that extra boost.
Vegava has a variety of different blends to choose from but for this recipe I used their Premium Vegan Protein in the chocolate flavour to get that sweet and delicious flavour you love in cookies. Oh and I almost forgot to mention one of the other things I love about this product, IT COMES IN COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING!!!

Use a 1 tbsp. ice cream scoop to measure and round the cookies. Place 12 cookies onto each baking sheet and bake for 9 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes before placing on cooling racks to cool completely.
Note: They will seem uncooked at 9 minutes but trust me you want to remove them now so they remain gooey and soft in the center.
