Method

#1 Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a tray with baking paper.

#2 Add the protein powder, oats, cashew butter, cacao and coconut oil into a food processor and blend until everything is well combined.

#3 Add a splash of almond milk and blend again to create a sticky, dough-like mixture. You can always add in more nut butter or coconut oil if the ingredients aren’t holding together.

#4 Stir through the chopped almonds and chocolate and mould the dough into small cookies.

#5 Place the cookies onto the baking tray and cook in the oven for around 11 minutes.

#6 Transfer onto a wire wrack and allow to cool.

#7 To make the frosting, mix the cashew butter, sweetener of choice and cacao powder until smooth and creamy.

#8 Add a dash of almond milk if needed, to create a thinner consistency.

#9 Spread the frosting over the cookies and garnish with some cacao nibs.
