I got a surprise and yummy delivery of healthy protein cookies from The Cookie Department. They are promoting a line of healthy protein cookies with
a variety of amazing flavours to help build and maintain muscle. Each cookie contains a superfood, which helps boost its nutritional value. They reached out to me and a bunch of my foodie friends (more like my foodie family) on Instagram to help promote their business, and I gotta tell ya, these samples were so yummy! I tried to be good and not eat all of the cookies ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you would like to order a sample of these cookies, head over to their website at thecookiedepartment.com and place your order! The Grate Full cookie is my favorite! Cheers guys!

Recipe: Makes 4 Cups

1/2 cup melted vegan chocolate chunks (Enjoy Life)
1 tsp. organic virgin coconut oil
1/4 cup paleo custard (add 1 tbsp. lemon zest)
1 Espresso cookie

Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a bowl and melt in the microwave for 1 minute. The coconut oil helps with loosening the chocolate and making it smooth, since itโ€™s dairy free.

When ready, pour about 1.5 tbsp of melted chocolate into the silicone cups. Use a cooking brush or a fork to cover the edges of the cup with the chocolate. Make sure itโ€™s about 1 inch thick or the cups might break when youโ€™re trying to take them out.

Place cups in the freezer, they should form a hard shell in 10-15 minutes.

When ready, gently remove chocolate shells from the silicone cups. Fill chocolate shells with paleo custard and top with cookie pieces.
