Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Serves: 6

Happy Thursday! And if it isn’t so happy for you right now…..this recipe will definitely change that! I have never been ahuge chocolate fan. I have always preferred vanilla and fruit flavored things (my sister was the chocolate ice cream girl). But every now and again I get that craving for something with a deep, chocolate flavor. Let me tell you…these cookies will satisfy even the pickiest of chocolate eaters! They are soooo soft, chocolatey and almost fudge like! Make sure you have a big glass of milk to go along side these babies! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Can these be made with whey? I don't do very well with hemp seeds for some reason.

    What protein powder would you recommend for someone not really exercising much and with a funky digestive system? Whey seems pure and "not funky" but I hear good things about Sunwarrior.

        Life's Basics makes a really great vegan protein powder that really agrees with my system during times I cannot do whey. It's a blend of rice, pea, hemp and a very small amount of chia.....also straight pea protein powder is incredible as well. Olympian labs makes a really awesome one ... inexpensive and tastes amazing. I've yet to try the Vega line due to how expensive it is or Sun Warrior, but I've heard great things there too. Sorry to jump in on your thread...hope you find something that works for you Rach...
