It’s day 4 of cookie week! Not only am I introducing you to my new favorite protein today but also an amazing recipe you can use it with.
Have you ever heard of collagen peptides? If not, then I can’t wait to tell you about collagen, a protein in the body and the benefits of using Vital Protein’s Collagen Peptides.
What is collagen?
“Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and helps give structure to our hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments and tendons in our body. Thanks to collagen, we’re better able to move, bend and stretch. Collagen is also behind helping hair shine, skin glow and nails stay strong. .
Collagen is a protein made up of amino-acids: glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine, all of which help our body’s connective tissue, skin, hair, nails, as well as gut health stay as healthy as possible.
Collagen protein is different than whey and casein protein because of these high levels of amino acids. Muscular growth, joint health and an overall glowing appearance can be partially attributed to the amino acid blend in collagen that can’t be found anywhere else.” —Vital Proteins
These almond flour chocolate chip cookies ARE so delicious, soft and are packed with collagen protein.
I love using the Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides in my baking recipes lately is because it’s odorless, tasteless and mixes incredibly well — so basically it just adds protein. It’s also incredible in smoothies because it gives them a thick milkshake-like consistency. You can even mix it into your coffee for a little boost in the AM.
Trust me, you are going to LOVE it.
