Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

August 19, 2016

Ingredients

½ cup coconut flour

½ cup whey vanilla protein powder

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1/3 cup peanut butter

1/3 cup packed brown sugar splenda

1 egg + ¼ cup egg whites

1/3 cup applesauce

1 T vanilla extract

 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. In a medium bowl combine the dry ingredients: coconut flour, protein powder, brown sugar splenda, baking powder and baking soda.

  3. Microwave peanut butter until soft (30-45 seconds).  In a separate large bowl combine softened peanut butter, egg, egg whites, apple sauce and vanilla extract.

  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop rounded tablespoons of cookie batter into approximately 16 cookies. 

  5. Bake for 12 minutes.  Remove cookies from oven and use a fork to gently press fork into each cookie to create an X shape.  The cookies will be a little puffy or “risen” and this helps to press them down and creates more of a cookie texture.  Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
