Sometimes you just want a sweet snack, but rather than reaching for high-sugar, high-fat shop bought cookies, make your own using healthy ingredients instead.
This cookie recipe is high in quality protein, contains good fats (coconut oil which has many health benefits), and tastes absolutely delicious too. They are also very quick and simple to make.
You don’t need an electric mixer if you don’t have one. You can use a bowl and spoon instead.

- 1 tsp vanilla extract

- 1/2 cup raisins/sultanas/choc chips/cherries/blueberries

You may want to melt the coconut oil/butter and sugar in the microwave for 30 seconds if the coconut oil has solidified.
Add the remaining ingredients near the end, then mix slowly until distributed evenly.
Spray a baking sheet with oil to prevent the cookies from sticking, then drop tablespoon sized amounts onto the baking sheet.
