Ingredients

Coconut flour is a star of this recipe and Raffaello balls which these cookies will remind you of. Studies showed that it helps keep blood sugar stable while promoting healthy digestion. [1] It is gluten-free, so it is easy to incorporate into any dessert recipe.

If you already heard that almonds can go everywhere, you heard right. They are very nutritious: provide us with plant-based protein, vitamin E for immune functions, calcium for teeth and bone health, just to mention a few. [2]

To make these Raffaello cookies sweeter, I used honey. Yes, it is high in calories, but it offers antioxidants and protects our bodies from heart disease, cancer, and some other disorders. [3]

Whey protein powder comes from strained milk, and people use it when they want to include more high-quality protein in their diets. So if you are looking for a post-workout treat, this could be it. To get Raffaello flavor, I used vanilla whey protein powder.
