Grain-free, high-protein, vegan, refined-sugar free, oil-free and adaptogenic CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES featuring my favorite Ayurvedic Protein! ????

These magical treats are thick, soft, and “buttery.” ?

I mean, keep scrolling and take a look at this dreamy cookie dough! And for a closer look, check out my Instagram Reel to get yourself in the summer baking mood!

First things first. Stock up on this amazing protein powder (the key ingredient in these cookies) that’s also an amazing addition to your smoothies, energy bites + more. I realize that there’s no shortage of protein powder options these days, and it’s often difficult to find a reliable source that’s agrees with your body and tastes delicious. Ayurvedic Protein not only sources high-quality ethical ingredients, but also includes a curated blend of medicinal herbs/adaptogens that create/maintain homeostasis. This powder tastes equally delicious in smoothies, baked goods, no-baked bites, and more! Read more about the incredible company, and founder Lizzy here! Stay tuned for more recipes with this amazing brand 😉

And for an exclusive discount of 20% off for my audience only, use code ASHLEY at checkout! =)

The other ingredients are pretty typical in a healthy plant-based kitchen, and easy to find online and in most grocery stores.

I always recommend the best quality dark chocolate for a chocolate chip cookie, so I listed some of my favorites below 😉

Can’t wait for you to make this epic adaptogenic chewy chocolaty treat!

PSA: feel free to eat the dough as is if you’re a cookie dough fanatic and/or don’t want to preheat your oven! ?

Beautiful bundle of dough!

Adaptogenic, Gut-friendly, Vegan + Paleo Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


2/3 c almond flour

1/4 c vanilla Ayurvedic Protein 

1 tbsp coconut flour, sifted 

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

2 tbsp maple syrup

2 tbsp coconut sugar or granulated monkfruit

2 tbsp cashew or almond butter

2 tbsp vegan Cream cheese, I like Spero Foods (or vegan Greek yogurt or additional nut butter), room temperature

1 tsp vanilla extract

Splash non-dairy milk, if needed

Chopped Paleo chocolate (such as Hu kitchen, Let’s Bake Believe, Raaka, or Evolved Chocolate)


Mix the first 5 ingredients in large bowl. (Option to sift all ingredients, but definitely sift coconut flour!)

MIx the remaining ingredients (except chocolate) in a smaller bowl until smooth and glossy.

Pour wet into dry and mix by hand or with an electric mixer. If the dough is dry add 2-3 tsp non-dairy milk to reach cookie dough consistency.

Stir in chocolate.

Form into 10-12 balls, roll, and flatten. They won’t spread much in the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Enjoy warm or save for later =)
