Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies (No-Bake)

Could you have a better combination of words? Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies. Yum. Oh and don’t forget the no-bake part! What! I was so excited when I saw this recipe that I had to make my own variation! You may get that I’m excited due to the back-to-back exclamation points. This was an incredibly easy recipe. As I was putting it together, I kept thinking, is this really going to work? Spoiler alert: it worked and it’s damn delicious! There is no cooking time to these cookies and they are chock-full of protein! Often times, adding protein powder to baked goods can give them weird textures and flavors. Not this one! You wouldn’t even suspect that there was anything added to these cookies besides deliciousness.

This recipe is perfect for breakfast or a quick snack. You don’t have to feel guilty scarfing these ones down, there’s not much sugar in them! I bet you even your kids will like them! You can make these the night before or the day of because it takes less than 7 minutes. You can refrigerate them if you’d like, but it’s not necessary. This a great healthy recipe that will get you kicking your day’s butt! My only problem with this is that I should’ve made more of them! Try this recipe to stay hungry and fit!
