Protein Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

This Protein Peanut butter cookies recipe is so good and the greatest part is they have a perfect balance of healthy fats, carbohydrates and protein. These are great as a snack, or a quick protein packed breakfast.

Designer Whey was used in this recipe but I have also tried it with Vanilla Naturade Pea Protein which gives them more of a crumbly texture. Both  powders give me results I like so I thought I would include them both.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Peanut butter
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 Egg white
  • 2 tbs Applesauce
  • 1/4 cup Vanilla protein powder
  • 1 cup Old fashioned oats (use gluten free if sensitive)
  • 1/2 cup Baking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking soda

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. line with parchment paper or Line sheet pan with foil, and spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Microwave peanut butter in for 30 seconds, or until softened, which will make it easier to mix.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the first four ingredients until smooth. In a separate bowl, mix together the rest of the dry ingredients. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together.
  4. Moisten hands (to prevent from sticking), and roll cookie dough into balls. Use a fork to press a criss-cross into each cookie.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes.
  6. Let cookies cool for a few minutes, and enjoy!
