Are these cookies high in protein?

A quarter cup of almond flour contains 6 grams of protein. This recipe uses 1 ½ cups of almond flour plus an additional ½ cup of slivered almonds for the top. There is also protein in egg whites. These cookies certainly contain more protein than many other cookies.
