The ChocoGo(Chocolate and protein energy cookies)

I’m delighted to be able to share this high-protein recipe I created in honour of the Chicago Marathon. Chicago… ChocoGO! Hahaha! And guess what, I’ll be running it again this year. It’s therefore the perfect moment to publish this recipe in English because it’s an excellent sports recovery snack. Why? Because it has the ideal carbohydrate to protein ratio for speeding recovery after exercise. In fact, the CHOCOGO is a substitute for the most famous sports recovery drink of them all: a glass of chocolate milk. Enjoy!

Source of protein, vitamin D, calcium, energy and love, my protein-packed creation ChocoGO is like a bone fide glass of chocolate milk… in the shape of a wholesome energy cookie. It’s an excellent snack to help you recover after a workout or simply keep you going for the rest of the day.

Fellow athletes, you’ll be amazed. Chocolate lovers, you’ll be hooked.



And then WHAT?

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. In a bowl, combine the following ingredients: date puree and yogurt.

  3. Add the pure vanilla extract, the baking soda and powder and the salt. Wait for a light frothing to occur (just for fun), then mix well.

  4. Mix in the undiluted powdered skim milk, cocoa powder, almond flour, ground flaxseeds, chocolate chips until combined.

  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat—otherwise, everything will stick.

  6. Drop spoonfuls of dough to create beautifully round energy cookies.

  7. Decorate with chocolate chips or discs.

  8. Bake for about 15 minutes. I’m telling you: these cookies will make you happy after each workout. Go, go, go!
