I’m a HUGE fan of Peanut Butter Cookies, have been for quite some time. I used to bake and eat them every day. Yup. Every single day. Well, that’s not healthy no matter how you look at it. So, I needed an alternative.
This recipe came about after really wanting to make a cookie that was packed with protein and healthy ingredients. While they don’t taste anything like those classic Peanut Butter cookies we’re used to, they do offer a great alternative.
Packed with protein, healthy sugars, flaxseed, and even a bit of chia…grab these cookies on your way out the door before your morning workout or for a great ‘pick me up’ in mid afternoon.
They won’t spike your blood sugar and actually fill you up! Can you say dessert BEFORE dinner? I even though about frosting these with a bit of peanut butter frosting with a hint of coconut oil? Could you imagine the awesome flavors that would impart!
The family gobbled these up about as fast as I could make them and I’m itching to try a few different methods of making. Including substituting almond butter, adding a bit of coconut oil, and even spiking them with a touch of earl grey tea. Yup.
What do you think? Should we make more of these homemade protein packed bars? Maybe an e-book? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
