Thai Tea Protein Cookies

Welcome to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama + Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl to create awesome healthy recipes each week! This week’s theme is Baked Goods!

I’ve been super-slacking in the realms of making recipes/meal-prepping! :[ But it’s for good reason! (I’ve actually been getting to have a life lately!) I’m also trying to be a more productive member of society so I’ve embarked on a number of projects with my advisor and my senior residents so that I can pursue both community medicine and sports medicine (more or less)! :]

Wayyy back in the day, I reviewed Milk Bar Life, and I decided to adapt a recipe from there! I don’t bake very often, and don’t anticipate myself doing this much in the next couple months because it’s been hot af over here (92 degrees yesterday, although it was a torrential downpour on Saturday so go figure).


The cookies I made look vastly different (and nowhere near as pretty) as the ones pictured in the cookbook because I changed up…a ton of things. I wanted to add protein and I also don’t have any sugar in my apartment other than coconut sugar, so…you gotta work with what you have! :O

They actually turned out pretty well, considering the fact that I completely winged it! Yes, they’re not the prettiest, but they’re super tasty (as long as you happen to love Thai tea, which I do).

      Thanks, Julie! They smelled/tasted so good! 😀

  2. Esther

    Those look like a really yummy treat! I have never used butter flavored coconut oil before, I am going to have to look into that!

    I hear ya about cooking/food prep! I am going to a fitness instructor training tomorrow so I have been swamped with prep for that plus real life! Haha

    Have a great weekend 🙂

    1. Farrah

      I’d never heard of it before until I got a chance to try the one from Barleans! I’m gonna have to stockpile that stuff, haha. It’s so good! *-*

      Best of luck to you on prepping, and I hope you have an awesome weekend too! <3

  3. Emily

    Ooh I’ve never seen butter flavored coconut oil. That would definitely get someone to like coconut oil if they don’t like coconut. And I always love how you put exotic flavors in your goodies.

      Agreed! I love using it in regular baking (and on popcorn! ;P)!

      Thanks, Emily! I’m trying to branch out! ;P! Hope you have an amazing weekend! <3

  4. Rachel (LittleChefBigAppetite)

    Yum! These sound delicious and so healthy!

    1. Farrah

      Thanks! I tried to halve the sugar content from the original recipe! 😛

  5. Annmarie

    These sound absolutely delicious! I love tea flavored food.

  6. Kristy from Southern In Law

    Ooh, these look delicious! I’ve never actually used tea in baking before! Except for maybe brewed tea?

      I don’t do it too often, but I may have to start–so many endless options! *-*

  7. ShootingStarsMag

    To be honest, I’ve never really found a tea that I’ve liked. However, my sister does so I think these would be something she’d enjoy! Thanks for sharing – I love that you switched up the recipe and they tasted good.

      I’m glad it turned out okay too, haha. I get nervous sometimes when I completely change up recipes for baked goods!

      I hope your sister likes these! :]!
