I’m so excited to share this one with everyone! I’ve been trying to find recipes to use my protein powder, and I think I found a really good cookie recipe that didn’t require I use any additional flour. There’s quite a bit of sugar, but I think it’s worth it. These ended up being double chocolate peanut butter protein cookies, which I actually think I’d prefer over using a vanilla protein powder.
There’s a lot of protein powders out there, I use ProFlex20 from Melaleuca. I’ve heard stories from everyone about which one they like, but honestly, it’s really just up to you. I mix with water, so many protein powders I’ve found taste gritty to me or are too watery because there’s no mix to combine with.
A good place to start is by asking companies for samples. Many will provide them at no cost to you, some just ask that you cover shipping. It’s totally worth it to investigate before investing in something that you won’t like.
Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies
1/4 c. Chocolate protein powder
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips, stirring until completely combined. Add chocolate chips and fold into batter.
On a cookie sheet, place 1-inch balls of batter, spaced evenly apart. You should have 12 pieces.
Bake in oven for 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven, let cook for 15 minutes for cookies to harden. Keep in a cool, dry, airtight container in a cool place, or in the freezer.
