Skinny Peanut Butter PB2 Cookies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Barbell Bunny

An peanut buttery, protein-packed, and better-for-you treat! These cookies are cake-like (not crispy or chewy per se) but yummy nonetheless! I oftentimes substitute 2/3 of the required flour with Quest Nutrition's multi-purpose protein powder for extra protein and less carbs. Note: PB2 is not factored into the nutritional information, but here are the additional nutrition stats per cookie: +15 calories, 1/2 gram fat, 1/3 gram sugar, 2 grams cabs, 2 grams protein.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl (stevia, brown sugar, PB2, baking soda, salt, flour/protein).
  3. Add remaining wet ingredients and mix to combine (egg, almond milk, vanilla, syrup).
  4. Your batter will be quite sticky. If it seems like it isn't combining, add a little bit of almond milk 1 teaspoon at a time.
  5. Lightly dampen your hands and roll tablespoon-sized balls of the dough and press them down onto a cooking-spray'ed cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
