Peanut Butter Protein Cookies
WARNING: Proceed with caution, they smell and taste amazing!!
A couple of weeks ago, I found myself looking for a treat other than the usual piece of fresh fruit, greek yogurt, or handful of nuts. I wanted something freshly baked. I absolutely love peanut butter, so I looked at great lengths for a peanut butter cookie recipe that excluded both flour and sugar. Sad to say but, I could not find one!
Frustrated, I went into the kitchen determined to bake something. I pulled out my mixing bowl, and started grabbing random ingredients that I thought would go well together. I preheated the oven at 350.
Then combined the following:
One cup peanut butter, 1 egg, half a cup each of shredded coconut, walnuts, dried cranberries, and steel-cut oats, PLUS one scoop of protein powder, and that’s it!! Once I mixed all of the ingredients together, I created 32 little balls. I then placed them on a cookie sheet, flattened them with a fork, and baked them for eight minutes.
You’ll find them to be moist in the middle, slightly brown on the bottom and taste FANTASTIC! Give them a try.
