Yes, I know these sound awful. But they are yummy. Collagen peptides are so good for you. Both my husband and I have been taking collagen daily for about a year (Vital Proteins - available at Whole Foods and Amazon). You can add a scoop to coffee or smoothies. I have really noticed a difference in my hair. Some notice an improvement in skin and nails as well. In an effort to get the kids on board my husband found this recipe and tweaked it a bit. They love these cookies. Seriously!

Bonus: They are low carb too!

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
  • 1/2 cup stevia or monk fruit sugar substitute
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup peanut butter (no sugar added)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 cup sugar-free dark chocolate chips (or regular chocolate chips - it won't add that much sugar per serving)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the collagen, sweetener and sea salt.
  3. Add the egg and whisk at the edge of the bowl to mix the yolk and white, before mixing in with the dry ingredients. Add the peanut butter and vanilla and stir until smooth.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Use a medium cookie scoop or form balls in your hand. Squash the dough on the pan to about 1/4 inch with your hand or the bottom of a wet glass. 
  6. Bake for 16-20 minutes, until the cookies are semi-firm and not sticky on top. Cool completely to firm up more.
