Just some simple cookies made of 3 ingredients: dried figs, casein protein powder and walnuts.
Ingredients (for 12 small cookies):
- 1/2 cup walnuts (50g)
- 3 dried figs cut in small pieces and soaked in 1/2 cup warm water for a few hours
- 1/3 cup casein protein powder
I used an unflavored casein powder but a flavored casein powder (like chocolate-flavored) would be a great choice. Casein gives the cookie dough an elastic texture. The cookies would be a lot less chewy and a bit dry if you make the recipe with whey in place of casein.
Mix all ingredients (including the soaking water from the figs) together in a blender.
Form little cookie balls by hand and place on a non-stick cookie sheet.
Bake 15 minutes at 220 degrees Celsius or until cookies look golden brown. It’s important to let them cool completely before eating them. When they’re still warm they tend to be too soft / liquidy.
