Coconut Collagen Cookies Ingredients
2 cups of coconut flakes
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 cup of cacao powder
3 tbsps coconut oil
2 tbps of bone broth protein
Yield: 12 medium sized cookies
Coconut Collagen Cookies Instructions
- Put your seeds (pumpkin or sunflower) and coconut flakes into your blender or food processer and pulse until it takes on a flour like texture.
- Put in your bone broth protein or collagen peptides, raw cacao and monk fruit and combine it all together.
- Add in the vanilla extract.
- If the recipe is too thick you can add in more coconut oil and if it is too runny, you can add in more bone broth protein or collagen. I would recommend just a little at a time until you get your desired consistency.
- Take a scoop with a mini ice cream scooper and scoop about 2-3 tbsps by hand and place on parchment paper.
- Shape the cookies into whatever shape or size you like by pressing down on them. The batter may be a bit runny, but don’t worry about making them into perfect shapes. Our goal is nutrition, not looks.
- Place the cookies in the refrigerator until they are firm.
- Keep the cookies in the fridge to keep them fresh before eating them.
For this recipe, I like to use Pure or Chocolate bone broth protein powder. The chocolate is sweet enough to where you won’t need as much monk fruit. I will typically only need 1-2 tbps of monk fruit when I add in the bone broth protein.
I usually do ½ cup of sprouted pumpkin seeds and ½ cup of sprouted sunflower seeds. I love the Go Raw brand because they are pre-sprouted, which removes the phytic acids and enzyme inhibitors making them more digestible. Additionally, I find that these pre-sprouted forms taste significantly better than raw, unsprouted seeds.

This is a fantastic, low carb, ketogenic recipe that tastes amazing and helps you burn fat and build strong and healthy muscles, joints, skin and hair! This recipe has less than 5 grams of net carbs, is packed full of healthy fats, anti-oxidant polyphenols, clean protein and fiber.
I love the chocolate and coconut combo which helps improve neurotransmitter function giving you more energy, mental drive and focus. If you use the chocolate bone broth protein, you will only need about ¾ cup of cacao powder to give the desired chocolate look and flavor.
Collagen protein is rich in proline, glycine, glycosaminoglycans and chondroitin sulfate which are powerful nutrients to support the healthy of the intestinal lining, joints and muscles. Bone broth protein, coconut fats and sprouted seeds are 3 of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods that benefit both your metabolism and your overall appearance.
Most people are consuming too many muscle meats which are high in tryptophan and methionine. Our ancestors ate a blended amount of amino acids from the joints, tendons and bones which are rich in collagen. When we consume the muscle meats without the balance of collagen protein, it shifts our body into an inflammatory state.
This is one reason why people think meat is inflammatory. When we consume a balance of collagen protein with the muscle meat protein from grass-fed animal products, we create an anti-inflammatory environment within our body.
In order to get more collagen protein in your body, you can focus on eating joints, bones, etc. such as chicken wings and actually bite into the joint capsule at the top and suck out the bone marrow. You can also make your own bone broth and we have a great recipe in this article.
By far, the easiest way to get more collagen protein is through using our bone broth protein or collagen peptides which are easy to mix into recipes like this and provide 20 grams of collagen protein per serving!
