Strawberry Shortbread Protein Cookies


Folks, I set out on an impossible task yesterday morning. After years of research on how to cut down the fat and calories of recipes, I still hadn't found a recipe for for healthy shortbread that looked half decent. However, after MANY searches later, I came upon a recipe that both drastically reduced the amount of fat and had added protein in the form of protein powder! I made my own little tweeks to the recipe and I am proud to present you with these.

Step 1

Combine the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and add the wet ingredients until just combined (do not overmix, or else the dough will be too tough). Form the dough into a ball and wrap in clear wrap. Refrigerate for 20-30 mins.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Roll out dough using a roller and use your favorite cookie cutters to make the shapes. Place the cutout cookies on a greased cookie sheet and refrigerate for another 10 mins.
Bake cookies for 8-10 mins.
