Almond-Applesauce Cookies

1 1/4 c. blanched almond flour
1 1/2 scoops Whey Protein (I use Rainbow Light brand, but prob. any works)
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. ground coriander
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
2 T sugar (or you could use sugar substitute)
Mix dry ingredients together.

Mix together
1/2 c. applesauce
1 egg
enough vegetable oil to increase egg to 1/2 c. liquid

Mix liquid ingredients into dry. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto parchment-covered cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees (F) until springy and light brown. Cool.

With 20 cookies per recipe, each cookie is
90 calories
7 g. fat
4 g. carbs
1 g. fiber
3 g. protein

I developed these while trying to create a low-carb high-protein snack I could stand to eat at 4:45 am before rowing. Not quite there yet, but I think the cookies taste pretty good. The spices hide the whey protein flavor, the almond flour is low carb, and the applesauce adds moisture without fats.
