Peanut Butter Protein cookies

Sharing another recipe I found (here) for Peanut Butter Protein cookies. If you can’t tell by my recent posts, I’m trying to incorporate more protein in my diet. Mainly trying to make my breakfasts and snacks more protein packed. I’m finding myself snacking ALL the time and I HATE it. So I’m taking this as a sign to up my water intake and make better snack choices.
I firmly believe “sweets” in moderation are o.k. I lost 60 lbs, but never once cut out sugar (except soda).
I was VERY excited to stumble across this recipe. They are pretty tasty and clean!
Ingredients:
1 Egg 
1/2 sugar substitute. – *I actually used raw sugar and only a 1/3 cup.
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup natural peanut butter – *I didn’t use quite a cup.
1/2 cup vanilla whey protein
Mix egg, sugar, & extract together. Stir in peanut butter then slowly add protein. The protein really thickens it up, so add it slowly!

These are really filling. I felt ‘full’ after 1 small cookie. I got about 14 cookies total. Enjoy! 🙂
