Protein cookies are often VERY expensive to buy and are loaded with ingredients that consumers are not even aware or even know what they are. Did you know you could make your own at home for a fraction of the price? These cookies are perfect for a pre/post workout treat.

I have always had an interest for the healthy food industry, thehealthybeard started completely out of the blue – I started posting pictures of the breakfasts and desserts that I would make, within weeks my Instagram began to grow and people would ask me for the recipes. In 2014 I decided to quit eating animal based products and follow a plant-based diet and never looked back! My recipes focus on quick and easy plant-based dishes that are accessible to people. I love to inspire and encourage others to follow a healthy lifestyle. You can keep up to date with my recipes via my Blog and Instagram.
