Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

protein peanut butter cookiesWith this recipe I basically took everything bad out of the classic PB cookie and added healthier ingredients, but guess what?! It still tastes amazing- in fact better then the classic if you ask me.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats (1 cup processed, either in a magic bullet or food processor)
  • ¾ cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • ¼ cup nuts, walnut, brazil or pecans use what you have
  • ¼ natural sugar- I generally use honey its got lots of antioxidants and it’s a great binder, but I’ve also used coconut sugar or agave. NO white sugar
  • 1 egg (or 1 tbsp chia seeds mixed with 2 tbsp water- let sit till goopy then mix in)
  • 1 cup protein powder, I like chocolate vega but it’s personal preference
  • tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup choco chips, I know this isn’t healthy per say, but its not very much and keeps it fun-use organic if it makes you feel better.

1.  I throw all my ingredients into an electric mixer and set on medium, however if you don’t have a mixer thats fine too, with a bit of muscle power you’ll get the same results.

2. Form into balls and press with a fork, bake at 350 F for 10 mins
