DOUBLE CHOCOLATE Peanut Butter Protein Cookies! This easy recipe makes 2 dozen delicious, healthy cookies made with chocolate protein powder. I love eating these chewy cookies for breakfast or a afternoon snack because they’re a great source of iron, protein and fiber!
These cookies are AMAZING! They’re double chocolate, peanut butter and made with chocolate protein powder which gives a nutritional boost! Who doesn’t love a cookie that packs a punch with sources of iron, and high in protein and fiber? I made these cookies a few days ago to rave reviews and they were gone the next day. They’re that good.
With the arrival of baby, I find myself lagging during the afternoon and forgetting to eat lunch. With a newborn baby, there’s something always needing to be done from snuggles, feeding, diapers, cleaning, laundry and saying out loud “I love you so much but why won’t you stop crying? Please talk to me and tell me why!”. These cookies are perfect to grab and go, not only during the afternoon but during the middle of the night feeds and pumping too.
I use Bob’s Red Mill Chocolate Protein Powder for these cookies which not only do I love for shakes but is perfect to bake with too. It’s unique blend is made from pea protein powder, chicory root fiber, chia seeds, beneficial probiotics, and monk fruit extract for a touch of sweetness. I’ve talked previously about my love for Bob’s Red Mill and it continues to this recipe since they provide high-quality, minimally-processed products from the mill straight to my kitchen. So many of their products are committed to catering to dietary restrictions such as gluten-free, vegan and paleo so I’m always recommending it to all my friends (and readers!).
These cookies now share a special place in my heart since they were the first cookies Enceladus and I baked together. She was just 5 days old and helping her Mama make Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies in the kitchen, I have to teach her to love cookies early!
Next time you’re looking for a new cookie recipe that adds nutrition to your diet, look no further and make these Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies! Enjoy!
