  • Rolled oats are full of fibre, which is great for digestion and helps you feel fuller for longer. They contain a unique fibre called beta-glucan, which is associated with lower cholesterol levels.
  • As well as having an amazing caramel taste, coconut sugar is low GI, with a rating of 35, compared to white sugar’s high GI rating of 60. It also contains nutrients and minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium and potassium

Ingredients

  • 1 heaped cup of gluten-free rolled oats, processed into flour
  • 1 scoop of vanilla Whey Protein Isolate (or your favourite vanilla protein powder)
  • 4 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 4 tbsp stevia
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips
  • 30g Puregg Egg Whites 
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 2 tbsp water

Direction

1 Preheat oven to 190°C and grease an 8 hole muffin tin with coconut oil spray.

2 Place oats, whey protein, coconut sugar, stevia, salt, baking soda and chocolate chips in a bowl. Combine well.

3 Add Puregg Egg Whites, coconut oil, vanilla extract and water to the dry mixture and combine.

4 Divide the mixture between muffin tin holes and using a spoon, make a well in the middle of each. Spread mixture evenly up the sides of the muffin hole to make a cup shape. Press a foil cake cup into each cookie cup.

5 Bake for 6 minutes, then carefully remove from the oven and press the foil cups down into the cookie. Put back in the oven for another 5 minutes or until golden.

  1. Remove from oven and leave to cool for at least 10 minutes. Discard foil cake cup and carefully remove Choc Chip Cookie Cups from the tin as they’ll continue to cook while cooling.
