Lemon Drop Cookies (High Protein)

Jump to Recipe

Happy March, my friends!!!! I’m going to keep this post short but sweet… or maybe tart? (HA! I went there…)

These Lemon Drop Cookies are going to ROCK YOUR WORLD.

They’re low in sugar, fat and carbs.
They’re gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free friendly!
They’re minimal in ingredients and in TIME <– we’re all about efficiency over here, you know?
All that is grand but my absolute favorite part is that they’re high in protein – each cookie is about 5 grams of the good stuff!!
That means you’ll be satisfied not only from how delicious AF they are, but from giving your body some added nutrition too.

You all know that my favorite source of vegan protein is from Nuzest because of their quality ingredients. I knew I wanted the base of these lemon bites of bliss to include their Smooth Vanilla protein. I thought it would add a touch of sweetness without being overpowering – it was a good move.

THE RIGHT MOVE.

If you’ve never tried Nuzest, you’re in luck because I have a discount LINK for you. This link is special for all my lovely friends that will get you a really amazing discount. If you’re not ready to commit, I totally understand. They have sample packs that my link will get you a discount on as well!

Not into protein powders? NO PROBLEM. You’ll have to do some testing but you can replace the protein powder with more protein… I just can’t tell you how much.

I’m a die hard Nuzest lover mmk?
