Lemon Protein Cookies Recipe

From the folks at Prograde Nutrition along with a 20% discount on their protein powder...

In a food processor, add:
• 1 scoop Prograde vanilla protein powder
• 1 1/2 cups raw unsalted almonds
• Zest and juice from one whole lemon (TIP: Roll the lemon first to get the most juice from it)
• 1 tablespoon water

Process till a doughy meal forms. If it seems dry, add water a little at a time until you get the consistency that will form a tight ball if you were to roll it-sticky but not wet (think playdough).

Next, drop it onto a sheet of wax paper. Keeping hands wet to avoid sticking, form into a log, wrap both ends of the log first, then roll tightly to make a packed, compact roll. Put in freezer for an hour, then pull out and with a sharp knife, cut into slices. 
Store in refrigerator in single layers, or keep in the freezer to enjoy when your sweet tooth hits!

Makes 12-1/2 inch cookies.
