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

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

  • 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.

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

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

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

History

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.

FAQ

Can I swap chia seeds for flax seeds and vice versa?

Yes, always. You can also use hemp seeds.

Is almond powder the same thing as ground almonds?

Yes. Almond powder, ground almonds, almond flour… they’re pretty much the same thing. Almond flour is available at supermarkets but the almonds are ground more finely. That being said, when a recipe calls for almond flour, you can easily use ground almonds instead.

What can I use as a substitute for almond powder or hazelnut powder?

You can always substitute one type of nut powder for another type of nut powder or even powdered seeds (sesame seed or sunflower seed powder). You can also replace almond powder with organic tiger nut powder. (Tiger nuts are a tuber.)

What can I use as a substitute for milk powder?

It depends on the recipe. When I use milk powder, it’s often a central ingredient in the recipe. Leaving it out is a bit like taking away its very essence. I use it to add protein and give it a nice smooth creamy texture. Without the milk powder, you need to adjust the entire recipe. You can use soy milk powder and you’ll get good results but the texture won’t be the same. It may therefore be best to just try another recipe.
