Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Protein Cookies


When the cookies you make melt in your mouth and taste like brownies, you add "fudge" to the title. These are like soft batch, warm, gooey, peanut buttery brownie-ish cookies :) The flavor combo is phenomenal, mainly thanks to Giant Sports PB Chocolate Protein. Enjoy!

Ingredients

½ cup rolled oats
½ cup oat flour
1½ scoops chocolate protein powder
2 Tbsp. cacao powder
1/3 cup baking stevia or xylitol
¾ tsp. baking powder
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
3 egg whites

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray.

2. Combine peanut butter, almond milk, and egg whites in a medium sized mixing bowl. Whisk together until smooth then add in the remainder of the ingredients. Stir until well combined.

3. Drop about 2 Tbsp. of cookie dough onto the sheet pan, making 12 cookies total. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Remove, let cool slightly, and drizzle with melted sugar free chocolate, if desired. Enjoy!

  2. DO you think I could use vanilla protein for this? Also, could you use quick oats?

    1. You can certainly try vanilla protein powder. You won't get as strong of a chocolate flavor, though. And yes, quick cooking oats should work fine.

  3. Great recipe Nicolette!

    These look incredibly delicious especially with the added cocoa powder. The macros are certainly appealing without the topping too so I imagine this would make for a great cheat snack on rest days :)
