Step 1: Place your seeds (pumpkin or sunflower) and coconut flakes in your blender or food processor and pulse until it takes on a flour-like texture.
Step 2: Put collagen protein or peptides, raw cocoa and monk fruit in your bone broth and combine them all together.
Step 3: Add the vanilla extract.
Step 4: If the recipe is too thick, you can add more coconut oil, and if it is too runny, you can add more bone broth protein or collagen. I would recommend just a little at a time until you get the desired consistency.
Step 5: Take a scoop with a mini scoop of ice cream and scoop out 2-3 scoops by hand and place on parchment paper.
Step 6: Shape the cookies into the shape or size you want by pressing them. The dough may be a little runny, but don't worry about making them perfectly shaped. Our goal is nutrition, not appearance.
Step # 7: Place cookies in refrigerator until firm.
Step 8: Keep cookies in the refrigerator to keep them cool before eating.

For this recipe, I like to use pure bone broth or chocolate protein powder. Chocolate is sweet enough that you don't need as much monk fruit. Usually I will only need 1-2 tablespoons of monk fruit when I add the protein from the bone broth.
I usually make ½ cup of sprouted pumpkin seeds and ½ cup of sprouted sunflower seeds. I love the Go Raw brand because they are pre-germinated, which removes phytic acids and enzyme inhibitors making them more digestible. Also, I find that these pre-germinated forms taste significantly better than raw, non-germinated seeds.
I use the monk fruit Julian Bakery, because it is totally pure, free of sugar alcohols and works very well!
This is a fantastic, low carb keto recipe that tastes great and helps you burn fat and build strong, healthy muscles, joints, skin and hair! This recipe has less than 5 grams of net carbs, is packed with healthy fats, antioxidant polyphenols, clean protein, and fiber.
I love the chocolate and coconut combo that helps improve neurotransmitter function and gives you more energy, mental drive, and focus. If you use the chocolate bone broth protein, you will only need about ¾ cup of cocoa powder to give it the desired chocolate look and taste.
Collagen protein is rich in proline, glycine, glycosaminoglycans, and chondroitin sulfate, which are powerful nutrients to support the health of the intestinal lining, joints, and muscles. Bone broth proteins, coconut fats, and sprouts are 3 of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods that benefit both your metabolism and overall appearance.
Most people eat too much muscle meat that is high in tryptophan and methionine. Our ancestors ate a combined amount of amino acids from the joints, tendons, and bones that are rich in collagen. When we consume muscle meats without the balance of collagen protein, our body changes to an inflammatory state.
This is one reason why people think meat is inflammatory. When we consume a balance of collagen protein with muscle meat protein from grass-fed animal products, we create an anti-inflammatory environment within our body.
To get more collagen protein in your body, you can focus on eating joints, bones, etc., like chicken wings, and biting the joint capsule on top and sucking on 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 by using our bone broth protein or collagen peptides, which are easy to mix in recipes like this and provide 20 grams of collagen protein per serving.
