Almond Coconut Protein Cookies

This recipe has a bit of meaning to it because I made these protein cookies specifically for the Non-GMO campaign in order to help raise awareness of GMO vs. Non-GMO foods and products. In order to explore the healthy world of Non-GMO, you need to have an understanding of what Non-GMO really means. 

What is Non-GMO? GMO stands for genetically modified organisms. I don't know about you but, to me, that sounds....not normal. It basically means that changes and/or alterations have been made to a plant or animal in order to tell that organism how to grow. And THOSE plants and animals are what we put in our bodies! So products with the Non-GMO seal do not contain these genetically modified organisms. 

Vitacost has a wide variety of Non-GMO products that can help you take control of your health. Most of the ingredients use in this recipe have the Non-GMO seal and can be purchased from Vitacost. Simply click on the ingredient and it will direct you to the product.
