It’s funny that when you use a specific ingredient so often, you somehow assume everyone does too.

That is me with coconut flour.

It’s no surprise that coconut flour is one of my most used ingredients. It’s often one of the first ingredients I turn to, along with almond/cashew butter when it comes to making something sweetHeck, even when it comes to savory recipes, they play a pivotal role too- As evidenced by last year’s most popular recipe and one of my most made recipes ever- this English muffin

Unfortunately for me, not everyone possesses the same sentiments. While there ARE a fair few coconut flour enthusiasts out there, I need a dose of reality here and realize that no; not everyone considers it one of their staples.

It’s amazing to realise how much we’ve all progressed in terms of what our kitchens contain now VS several years ago. To be quite frank, even 6 years ago, I most likely didn’t even have ANY type of flour in my own pantry- The thought of cooking or baking probably would have made me squirm! Sure, in my ideal world (and kitchen!), coconut flour would be commonplace. However, until this epic flour is situated next to the whole wheat flour in the supermarket, I’ll bite the bullet and be happy to see it accepted before becoming standard. 

This is where today’s simple recipe comes in. A few months ago, I shared this insanely easy 3 ingredient no bake paleo protein bar recipe but of course, it used coconut flour. I swapped out the coconut flour for some healthy fats (aka cashew or almond butter) and it changed the consistency but was insanely delicious…and that was just the batter. After letting them sit in the fridge, I was left with these amazing no bake cookies which had a fudge-like consistency- Sorry coconut flour- You weren’t needed this time!

These healthy 3 Ingredient No Bake Paleo Protein Cookies have the most amazing texture- They are soft and fudge-like, and taste even better slightly thawed from the freezer! For such a doughy, chewy and soft cookie, you won’t believe they are ridiculously healthy for you, but they are- They contain no butter, oil, flour, grains, sugar or dairy! They literally take just five minutes to whip up and are suitable for those following a paleo, gluten free, vegan, dairy free and low carb lifestyle!

HACK! While I’m a huge advocate of using homemade nut butters in most of my recipes, I would recommend using a natural, store-bought DRIPPY nut butter- The texture just worked much better when combined with strictly protein powder.

Ingredients
  1. 4 scoops vanilla protein powder, 32-35 grams each (I used a paleo blend, casein blend and a vegan blend- See 'Shop' for brands)*
  2. 1 1/2 cups almond butter**
  3. 1/4 cup + dairy free milk of choice
  4. Chocolate chips, optional
  5. Pinch sea salt, optional
Instructions
  1. Line a large plate with parchment/baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine protein powder and almond butter and mix well- A crumbly texture should remain. Using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk until a VERY thick batter is formed.
  3. Using your hands, form into small balls and place on lined plate. Press firmly into a cookie shape, add chocolate chips if desired and sprinkle with sea salt. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to firm up.
Notes
  1. * Please make sure you like the taste of your protein powder and that it's sweetened.
  2. ** Use a drippy almond butter. If slightly stiff, heat until melted.
  3. These cookies are best kept in the fridge (fudgy texture) or enjoyed slightly thawed from the freezer (slightly firmer but still fudgy).

  1. So I don’t use coconut flour a ton around here, but I do keep it in the pantry and it comes out occasionally. I love the texture of baked goods w/ coconut flour, so I should try using it more often. Anyways, for me, a pantry staple would be pecans. I use them in a lot of different recipes (either in or as garnish), so I end up buying the huge bags from Sam’s Club. That and big boxes of diapers for Robbie.

  2. It’s so weird to see my parents pantry compared to mine. They always had fifty types of cereal, candy, only one type of flour, sugar, and all this stuff I never use! My staples are peanut butter, chickpeas, oat and coconut flour, coconut or olive oil and some sort of “natural” sugar. I also don’t buy in bulk like my mom does. She is prepared for the zombie apocalypse hahaha
    One pantry staple everyone needs is their favorite bean.

  3. As a lover of coconut flour I would’ve been glad to see it in a recipe. However, this could be the next big #kitchenhack cookie recipe! I can’t wait to try what you made!

  4. You and Amanda definitely converted me to loving coconut flour for an unbeatable, doughy texture to no-bake/baked goods and oatmeal. Forever grateful.
    Um, my pantry has filled with more things from Columbus, Ohio and Los Angeles, California in the past year.
