My daughter loves Peanut Butter cookies. I try to make them a step healthier. Here is what we use for our recipe… Her reply – “Yum, mommy, these taste just like the other cookies! This recipe uses less sugar and a substitution of some protein powder to offset some of the empty carbs.
1 cup organic butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 cup peanut Butter
1/4 cup Protein Powder
1 1/4 cup organic all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp Himalayan sea salt
1 cup oat meal (if you have a texture picky child, like mine, you can grind this into a flour)
Preheat your oven to 350 degree F
Mix protein, flour, baking soda, sea salt and oats in a medium bowl – save to add to wet
In a mixer cream the butter, sugars and peanut butter until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until well blended. Blend the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined completely.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. I used a medium sized Pampered Chef scoop to measure them out.
Bake 10-15 minutes in the preheated oven. JUST UNTIL LIGHT BROWN. Don’t over-bake.
Store in an airtight container, or give to neighbors. 😉
