First off, I have heard great things about the Peanut Butter & Co White Chocolate Wonderful and Dark Chocolate Dreams. I was curios so I purchased them this week. I thought I would use them in some new recipes. I love dark chocolate so I bought the Dark Chocolate Dreams first, but then two of my friends love the white chocolate one, so I decided to try that one too. (I haven’t tasted that one yet, but later this week I will).
Here is the recipe that I used for the cookies:
2 1/2 c of peanut butter (I used 1/2 natural peanut butter, and 1/2 Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter)
4 egg whites & 1 whole egg
1/8c almond milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 scoops of whey protein powder (I used Isagenix Isapro Vanilla protein)
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp of Stevia or sweetener of choice. (6 packets)
Mix together all wet ingredients, then mix in dry ingredients until all blended. Cookie batter is seems oily, but cookies will still hold together. Roll out balls of cookie dough and then flatten with fork for peanut butter cookie look. Bake at 350 for 7 minutes. They seem like they need to cook longer, but if you leave them in they will be too dry.
Makes 30 cookies

I got this recipe from @jessfit5 on instagram, and she had a great suggestion of freezing half of them and then you don’t have to feel like you need to eat the whole batch! Just pull them from the freezer and nuke them for a moist chocolaty cookie treat! These are great for anytime snack! Good balance of carbs, protein and fat. 2 cookies would make a good serving size for many females as a snack or pre or post workout meal.
I’ve read that whey protein turns out a little more cake like and casein protein turns out a little more fudge like. I haven’t tried the latter, but I will soon and keep you posted!
