Paleo and Gluten Free Iced Maple Cookies

I haven’t posted a new cookie recipe in way too long! They are so easy and quick to make, I need to start developing a new one every month. These paleo and gluten free iced maple cookies are just that- easy and quick to make. Plus they’re delicious and so perfect for fall. They’re packed with protein from the vanilla collagen and topped with an easy 4 ingredient icing.

Almond Flour

Coconut Flour

Cashew butter

Maple Syrup

Ancient Nutrition Vanilla Collagen

Baking Powder

Almond Milk

Iced Maple Cookies (paleo, gluten free)

Why I Add Collagen:

I love to add collagen into my recipes because it gives them more protein. Also I love the benefits I personally see from adding collagen into my diet. I think adding it in has helped with my joint health as well as my hair/skin. But everyone is different and sees different results. Always do what works best for you and remember that I’m not a doctor.

Not only do I like adding it to easy desserts like this, I add collagen daily to my coffee. It adds 9 grams of protein and only 45 calories. I like to add a flavored one because it’s a healthier alternative to creamer in your coffee. Plus it dissolves right in and isn’t messy like adding protein into your coffee. Add a little unsweetened almond milk and it’s the perfect way to start the day!

What Collagen I Use:

I love this Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen.I have both the vanilla and chocolate flavors and I love adding them into recipes. All of the products they make are incredibly high quality, ethically sourced. Whenever I’m buying animal protein of any kind, that’s always what I look for. None of their collagens have an artificial flavor taste at all, which is important to me as well. Also it isn’t chalky like some protein powder can be. You can find the collagen I used here. Every product they make is not only delicious but also the best quality around!

The vanilla collagen adds the perfect touch to these Iced Maple Cookies. It adds a little bit of protein without compromising the texture or taste.
