Low-carb, sugar & dairy free, keto friendly, soft, chewy & delicious + a delicious vegan peppermint icing!
These are seriously one of my new favourite recipes for the holiday season! I have already made multiple batches to keep in the fridge to have for snacks/treats throughout the week. Anything peppermint flavoured & I am in!
Made with grass-fed whey protein powder
I love mixing up my protein powder & recently purchased the F-Factor Vanilla Grass-Fed Whey protein. I have to say I am obsessed! It is seriously amazing to bake with, packed with fiber, tastes great & has really clean ingredients- so I am a fan! If you like to keep it dairy-free, I love Ancient Nutrition’s Vanilla Bone Broth protein. It also bakes really well in my opinion & I personally love the flavour. For a vegan option, I love LivWell’s Vanilla Bean protein. These are my top 3 favourite protein powders & I tried to cover my dairy-free & vegan friends out there too, if you can’t do the whey!
My go-to sweetener: Lakanto
For most of my recipes, I use Lakanto. It is a sweetener made with monk fruit & erythritol. I love this stuff. It bakes incredibly well, doesn’t hurt my stomach, won’t raise your blood sugar, tastes delicious & is all natural. I am a huge fan of this stuff, especially if I want a treat but don’t want to go crazy with the white sugar, it does the trick every time. For this recipe, I used the powdered Lakanto, but feel free to use whatever sweetener you prefer, however, I haven’t experimented with any others for this recipe.
