It just hit me that I’m only going to be able to run/walk/frolic outside for a few more months (comfortably). I really do enjoy running to the gym, lifting, and running back. Or taking a stroll around Lake Harriet after dinner. I’d say summertime is the #1 reason why I love Minnesota. Winter is the #1 reason why I dislike (majorly) Minnesota.

Speaking of running to the gym. I have an awesome workout coming up later this week that I did last week :D I’m still sore. #toomanyreps

That workout is what sparked me to make some cookies that are protein-packed. This girl loves her PB cookies…so why not add a few protein shots to make the cookie worthwhile!

I have a confession. I know I am supposed to be this “fit foodie,” but I have a huge thing for Jiff All Natural Peanut Butter. Ra ra ra ra you can tell me that it has bad stuff for you in it (and I know that!), but it’s what I grew up on! I LOVE IT and no one is going to change my mind! #momslikeyouchoosejif

I’m not even a mom and I choose Jif.

This recipe is a spin-off of my Grain-Free Peanut Butter Cookies I made last year. Those were good, but these are better :D Just saying. If you want- you can always mix the two together and add in some chocolate chips!

Grain-Free Protein Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 12 cookies

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. First, preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix until your consistency is like cookie dough. Depending on the thickness of your peanut butter, you may need to add a few more tablespoons of protein powder.
  3. Spoon out 2 tablespoons of dough into your palms and roll into a ball. Flatten between your palms and place on a baking sheet. Use a fork to create classic peanut butter cookie criss-cross marks on your cookie.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden brown.
  5. Let cool for 10-15 minutes so that the cookies can harden!

I’m savoring these bad boys. I ate one of them right away and put the rest in a ziplock bag and into the freezer. This way I don’t eat the entire batch in one day! It really does work. I still have some 3-Ingredient Brownies left :D :D Good thing Blake rarely goes in the freezer. All for me, none for him.
