Gluten Free Peanut Butter Protein Cookie

Sometimes you just want a cookie with a cold glass of milk to distract you from the fact that you're responding to emails at 11:37pm. And you know what? You deserve it. And this one builds muscles or something.

Recipe

Time: 30 mins Servings: 24

Ingredients

  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup protein powder (Purium products are my favorite)
  • ½ cup peanuts (chopped)
  • ½ cup semi sweet dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium sized bowl beat together the peanut butter with the syrup. Add the egg, vanilla and baking soda and beat until combined.
  3. Stir in the peanuts and chocolate chips.
  4. Roll 1 inch balls of the dough and space a few inches apart from each other on a non-greased baking sheet. Gently press down the tops of each ball of dough. Bake for 8-9 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway.
  5. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
