Can a cookie make you prettier?

This one just might!

My chocolate chip cashew butter cookies have a secret ingredient to give you prettier skin, hair and nails.  And they’re so delicious they’ll put a big smile on your face.

Cashew butter forms the base of the dough.  It’s full of healthy fats and protein, so these cookies are more like a meal.  I always look for nut butters without any added sugar.  Cashew butter has a natural sweetness that really works here.

Eggs help bind everything together and also contribute quality protein and healthy fats.  I always use pastured eggs, which are higher in omega 3 fatty acids for gorgeous, glowing skin.

Coconut flour also helps bind everything together.  A little bit goes a long way!  I completely avoid grains since they were one of the biggest culprits with my cystic acne.  I don’t make baked goods often, but when I do the coconut flour really comes in handy!

Coconut palm sugar is used as a sweetener.  It’s lower on the glycemic index than regular sugar.  It also has a unique flavor (almost like caramel) that works well in these cookies.  It’s still sugar though…don’t go crazy!

Chocolate chips are essential here of course.   I use Enjoy Life brand, since the ingredients are super clean.  Most chocolate chips contain some form of dairy, these do not.  I usually get the “mega chunks.”

Collagen Peptides from Further Food are the secret sauce that gives these cookies extra protein and gives you firm skin, healthy hair, and pretty nails.  For real!  I have been using collagen peptides for years now.  I just turned 51, and my skin is firmer and healthier now than it was ten years ago.

A few other benefits of including collagen peptides in your daily diet include:

Supports weight loss, because collagen is more satiating than other forms of protein.

Smoothes cellulite, stretch marks and acne scars, because it improves elasticity and thickness of skin.

Strengthens joints and ligaments and can speed recovery from injury.

I’ve started using a new brand of Collagen Peptides lately called Further Food and I’m thrilled with them.  Quality is the same as the other brand I have been using, and I love that I am able to offer you a discount code for 10% off.  (The code is HAPPYHEALTHYANDHOT, of course.)  So you can be gorgeous and save some cash.

I’ve been using Further Food Collagen Peptides in my coffee every day, but I’m also trying to find other ways to fit it in, like these amazing cookies!  And they couldn’t be easier.  Here you go…

further food cookie

happy, healthy and hot chocolate chip cashew butter cookies

one cup cashew butter

two eggs

two tablespoons coconut flour

one half cup coconut palm sugar

 five scoops Further Food Collagen Peptides

one half teaspoon baking soda

one half cup chocolate chips 

Seriously this is too easy!

Dump everything in a bowl and stir until thoroughly combined.  Batter will seem very soft.  Chill in the fridge for at least an hour.  The dough will firm up from the cold and the coconut flour will start to absorb the moisture.

When you’re ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Take dough out of fridge and roll into balls.  Place evenly across cookie sheet and use your hand to flatten them.  I made 12 large cookies.

Bake for ten minutes, let cool, and enjoy!  If you make 12 cookies, each one contains a little over three grams of collagen. 

So can these cookies help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  Hell yeah!

Seriously, who isn’t happy with a cookie?  These are made with totally healthy ingredients…no inflammatory grains or dairy, plus collagen to support firm skin, gorgeous hair and nails and a fit body.   And with that beautiful skin, hair and nails and sexy body you’ll be hot for sure!
