Superfood Power Cookies (Wild Diet Approved)

Instead of drinking a protein shake, try this real food cookie recipes that fill you up without packing on the pounds:

The power of the cookie is in your hands.

As a former fat kid, I know the power a cookie can have over you. You start with one Oreo and then before you know it you’ve downed the whole bag with a big glass of cold milk.

A plate (or a whole bag) of prepackaged processed cookies eaten regularly can: Rot your teeth, tax your liver, cause metabolic syndrome and diabetes, lead to constantly elevated insulin resulting in cancer¹, increase hunger, cause sugar addiction, and drastically raise your risk for heart disease.

Your cookies don’t need to be filled high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, rancid canola oil, and genetically modified corn starch. Instead make them at home and pack them full of real food ingredients that will fill you up instead of making you hungrier.

Since we’ve been living on the road and traveling the world for the past few years, we’ve found it necessary to stay one step ahead of cookie cravings. So instead of drinking a protein shake, we’ve come up with real food cookie recipes to fill you up without packing on the pounds.

The power of the cookie is in your hands:

The fat from the cashew butter and coconut oil combined with the added protein will fight cravings and help you feel satiated. With just a hint of sweetness, you'll feel like you're eating a big spoonful of cookie dough.
  1. In a bowl, whisk together collagen, vanilla bean powder, and stevia.
  2. Add cashew butter and melted coconut oil, and stir until thoroughly combined. Get in there with your hands, if needed, and mix everything together.
  3. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Put bowl in the refrigerator for about 1½ hours, or until the dough is firm.
  5. Remove bowl from refrigerator. Immediately roll dough into balls and use a fork to flatten into a cookie shape, making a criss-cross pattern on the tops. Refrigerate or freeze until set.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.


When choosing a protein powder, prioritize the following things:

  • Organic ingredients
  • Low sugar. Keep it below 4 grams per serving.
  • If it’s a whey protein, make sure it comes from grass-fed cows.

And be sure to avoid cheap, junky ingredients in your protein, like these:

  • Soy, as in soy protein isolate, soy lecithin, etc. – these are usually cheap byproducts from GMO soy.
  • Acesulfame Potassium, which contains the carcinogen methylene chloride. Long-term exposure to methylene chloride can cause headaches, depression, nausea, mental confusion, liver effects, kidney effects, visual disturbances, and cancer in humans.
  • Maltodextrin is cheap to produce and increases shelf life of products. Though not a sugar, it still has a GI (glycemic index) of 130 by itself (table sugar is only 65). It causes insulin to be released in your body which stores sugars as fat.
  • Sucrolose was discovered by a group of scientists trying to enhance the pesticide effect of chlorine by “bleaching” sugar molecules. Their theory was that the insects would be attracted by the sucralose’s artificial sweetness, which is 600 times sweeter than sugar. Doesn’t sound like something I want to eat.
  • Fructose, which rapidly causes leptin resistance. Leptin is a hormone that controls appetite and metabolism to maintain a normal weight. It can also cause problems associated with the metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity, heart disease).
  • Artificial flavors, which come from anything that is inedible (i.e petroleum) that is processed to create chemicals flavorings. Natural flavors often contain junky ingredients as well, but there are some instances where they’re actually made from natural ingredients.

If you don’t digest dairy very well, avoid the whey and go for an organic hemp, rice, and/or pea protein.

Here are some protein powders we’ve tried that do a pretty good job:

  1. How do you feel about organic peanut butter? I notice you always mention all the other nut butters but not peanut butter. I have your book but don’t recall reading anything about that.


    • Hi Tricia, peanut butter is delicious. 🙂 There’s actually a recipe for peanut butter cookies in The Wild Diet. We don’t recommend peanut butter often since many people have peanut allergies, but a little peanut butter here and there is a wonderful treat if you don’t have an allergy to it.
