Almond Butter Collagen Cookies

You guys know how much I love a good cookie, especially when it’s a mostly healthy cookie! These Almond Butter Collagen Cookies combine the best of both worlds when it comes to macronutrients and taste. Made with creamy almond butter (protein + fat), collagen (protein), ground flax (protein, carbs, fat), and brown sugar (carbs), they are a balanced mix of deliciousness. And, bonus, they’re super easy to make and free from gluten, dairy, and eggs, which means if you or your loved ones are sensitive to any of these ingredients, you can still enjoy them!


  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter (peanut butter works too!)
  • 1/4 cup collagen (protein powder works too!)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine ingredients for flax egg in a small bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine almond butter, collagen, and brown sugar. Mix well and then stir in the flax egg until fully combined. On a silicon mat (or parchment paper) on a baking sheet, use a spoon to portion batter into 9 disks. Bake for 14-15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.

Makes 9 cookies

What I Ate Wednesday!

I am fired up and focused today! (I am making my way through Racheal’s book and loving it! Except for the email part. There is no way I could only check mine once or twice a day.) I tend to read 1-2 fiction books a month and one non-fiction and flip flop between them. I finished Sarah Jio’s Morning Glory and loved it, and I just started Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly. Here are some “What I Ate” meals!


Muuna sent me a few samples of their cottage cheese, and it’s very good! Love the raspberry flavor. I had this with an apple and Naturally Nutty almond butter for a simple breakfast one morning.


In the winter I really need to have warm lunches! I love these breaded fish filets from Whole Foods. They make a salad feel like a meal! This salad had greens, homemade dressing, carrot chips, tomatoes, leftover sweet potato fries, and two hot and crunchy fish filets.


I had to stop into Walmart the other day and had to share that I found these cute rose gold baskets for $1.50 each! (Really they are 2 for $3). I bought 4. Now I have to think of where to use them! The two-packs are only sold in stores, but you can get a 6-pack for $11 online! I swear Walmart is the place to go for inexpensive storage. I always see their Better Homes & Gardens line in my magazine, and am shocked at how cute and farmhouse-y everything is for such low prices. I found these great seagrass baskets for $13.97 on my visit as well, but I decided I didn’t have a spot for them. How cute is this blue and white cloth toy bin for $6?! It would be $30 at PB or Land of Nod.

I never go to Wal-mart without stocking up on more Giovanni Rana pasta! Ever since my blog post with them we’ve been hooked : )


Simple salmon with garlic, salt, and pepper (salmon is on the menu once a week over here) with asparagus and grits made in the rice cooker. (Not as good as the Quaker Grits, which I am a convert to!)

What’s the best thing you cooked this week?
