I'm all about getting plenty of protein in each day and always looking for creative ways to stay satisfied in the process. Here's a great high protein peanut butter cookie recipe that is as easy as it is yummy!
What you'll need:
1 cup of natural peanut butter
15 packets of Stevia
1 scoop of chocolate protein powder (or your choice of flavor)
1 tablespoon of cinnamon or nutmeg
1/4 cup skim milk
What you'll do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix them together until you get a nice blending of all ingredients. Take out a baking sheet and cover it with a single layer of wax paper. Then simple roll the cookie mixture into small balls about the size of a golf ball and place them on the wax paper, while flattening them out a bit with your fingers. Then pop them into the oven and cook for 10 minutes.
That's it folks and you'll have a pretty much guilt-free high protein snack that will satisfy your craving and help you stay true to your clean nutrition goals :) Stevia is a natural sugar alternative, yet if you prefer you can always use honey or agave nectar, yet keep in mind that either will increase the carbohydrate content of the cookies.
