First of all, I love peanut butter. I wish I could eat it by the spoonfuls and still hit my calorie goals LOL Alas, this recipe is the closest thing.
I called this recipe "magical" because it is only 3 ingredients, has great macros, and nobody will EVER know they are a healthy version of the classic PB cookie. SERIOUSLY.
I am joining an online powerlifting meet for a fun little competition this week since I sort of enjoy that kind of thing ;) oh and see my new decal on the wall?! Never give up.
But I digress, back to the recipe ha! This recipe is super simple to whip up. You can keep them in the pantry in a tupperware to eat in the place of protein bars or an easy snack!
Magical Peanut Butter Protein Cookies
Makes 11 cookies
1/2 cup, Peanut Butter (I used smooth)
2.00 tablespoons, Egg Whites
46 g or 1 scoop, Vanilla Milkshake Whey Protein (I used Premier Protein which is 180 cals / 30g protein per scoop)
Preheat your oven to 350*F. Grease a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
In a bowl, heat your peanut butter in the microwave for a minute so it is easier to mix. Stir in your protein powder then stir in the egg whites.
Using a tablespoon, drop cookies onto the cookie sheet. Use a fork to make the traditional PB cookie hash marks to helps the cookies flatten so they will bake evenly.
Bake for 5-8 minutes.
