Let’s Talk Collagen!

P.S. it’s optional!

My mom and I have been adding collagen into our diets for over a year and a half now and have been truly amazed at what we’ve seen. Let me tell you about her, first. My mom’s hair hasn’t stopped growing and is thicker than ever. Before she started using collagen protein daily, her doctor told her she might have to start taking medicine for Osteoporosis. At her next visit her doctor was stunned that she no longer had it! Now, I’m not saying collagen is the cure, but it was one of the only changes she made so she absolutely attributes it.

I love it as it’s wonderful for your skin, nails, and hair, and also for joint and gut health. Now, how do we sneak it into our daily routine (aside from breakfast cookies)? Through my coffee (yes it’s tasteless)!

Easy breezy. I just add a scoop into the mug, pour in the coffee, and it dissolves instantly with no taste.

But today… adding it into cookies!

  1. These look so good! I also have been hearing so much about Vital Proteins and really want to try out their products!

  2. Would love to make these! Eggs are my go-to but it’d be nice to mix it up and still get protein 🙂

  3. Cookies for breakfast that are actually super healthy? I can definitely get on board with that idea! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity 🙂

  4. Very excited to try these breakfast cookies. My kids are extremely picky eaters so I’m looking forward to another option for them. Regarding the collagen, how much to you consume per day? It says the serving is 2 scoops. Considering all the other supplements I buy, it’s not extremely affordable to spend $40 a mth on another one but I definitely see the value in it. Just curious if the serving size is what you need in order to see the benefits.

  5. Your recipes have really encouraged me to eat clean! Love them all and can’t wait to try the breakfast cookies!!

  6. i’ve used collagen before but i’ve been wanting to try vital proteins’! thank you for the chance!

  7. I had an old breakfast cookie recipe that I loved, but it definitely wasn’t clean. So glad I found this recipe! I miss being able to just grab a few cookies and go.

  8. I am a mom of six and grandmother of six and have the same things as your mom. I have tried Great Lakes gelatin in my coffee and I like it but if you do not finish coffee it turns to gelatin. Does this type work the same? Trying to have Bullet Proof or Rocket Coffee every morning and going to make these cookies to get in more collagen. Too many fun things in life to do to stay in bed with hurting joints!

  9. I have been wanting to try the collagen peptides for awhile now, but I have only seen recipes using them in smoothies. Love the idea of using them for baking too! I heard about you from the Fed & Fit podcast. Looking forward to using your site as another source of great recipes!

  10. I’m so glad I found your blog! Your blog will help me be successful on my quest to clean eating. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes!

  11. I tried a collagen protein a few years ago, but it was so gross and I had trouble finishing the container. It sounds like this would be more palatable than the one I had and I sure know I could use the collagen boost!

  12. I think I have everything but the collagen peptides and will make this recipe this weekend, it looks so good!
