Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

Recipe: Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

Peanut Butter Protein CookiesThese cookies are really delicious and they’re healthy! They’re a cross between an oatmeal raisin cookie and a peanut butter cookie. You can add in raisins and chocolate chips if you like, or leave them out if you don’t.

There’s no added sugar in these. The sweetness comes from the banana. I prefer to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and natural chunky peanut butter (no sugar added).

This recipe makes about 12 cookies, and you could totally eat all of them in one sitting with no guilt. Okay, with minimal guilt. Make these in advance and they are great for a quick breakfast to grab while running out the door.

Recipe: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

This is one of my favorite desserts because it’s so easy. This weekend we had peanut butter chocolate chip, but the possibilities are endless. For Valentine’s Day I made a Cherry Garcia flavor with frozen bananas, frozen cherries, chocolate chips, and vanilla extract. We always have bananas in the freezer, just in case, but they only need to freeze for a few hours if you don’t already have a stash.

I always keep bananas in the freezer for this exact reason. This recipe serves one. Throw in as many bananas as you'd like servings.
Ingredients
  • 1 Frozen banana
  • 1-2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1-2 Tbsp chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life ones, or you make raw ones)
  • 1-2 Tbsp non-dairy milk (I use almond milk, but coconut makes it very creamy also)
  • Vanilla (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)
Instructions
  1. Blend the banana and the milk.
  2. Add in the peanut butter, chocolate chips, and any other flavorings.
