EASY Homemade 3-Ingredient Protein Cookies (Vegan, Gluten & Dairy Free)

Call me a control freak, but the main reason I like to cook is so that I know EXACTLY what is going into the dishes I am eating.

However, give me a recipe with anything more than 5 ingredients and I can guarantee that that recipe has a 1 percent chance of ever being made.

What can I say… I like to keep it simple.

And since the world of baking is a mix of science, art and endless ingredients – well, let’s just say that cookies are NOT my forte.

That is… until NOW.

These easy peasy 3-ingredient protein cookies are p-e-r-f-e-c-t for when you are “eating clean” and want a sweet and healthy snack.
