When it comes to cookies, cake, and ice cream, I usually have a hard time saying no! That’s not to say you CAN’T have any, you can, obviously! However, I love trying new things and healthy alternatives to dessert recipes. When I say healthy alternative, I mean a little more nutrient dense than the original may be. Today, I decided to try peanut butter chocolate cookies…protein edition! This recipe is inspired by Tone It Up, who came out with the recipe for a 3-ingredient peanut butter cookie. Perfect for a busy girl like me! The only thing I switched out was the protein powder (I used my own chocolate protein powder I already have), and their recipe calls for vanilla protein powder. They actually use their Perfect Fit Vanilla Protein Powder which I need to order because it’s delicious! Since there’s a switch in protein flavor, I plan on making this again using vanilla instead of chocolate and seeing which I like better. But for now, here is the extremely easy recipe along with a few photos I took during the process. Enjoy!=]
- 2 scoops chocolate or vanilla protein powder
- ¼ cup egg whites
- 1 cup peanut butter
After preheating the oven to 350 degrees, mix all the ingredients together
Roll the dough into about 2 tablespoons balls. Then, flatten each ball with a fork (across each side) to create the shape of the cookie!
Bake for 10 minutes, and then you are done!! I made 12 cookies out of it
Eat and enjoy! Delicious with coffee in the morning, or after working out. Yum!
Thanks for the recipe Tone It Up!
