This recipe has been in my books for a while now! After weeks of testing different protein powders and nut butters, I finally have found the perfect ratio! Think of the softest brownie, mixed with the crisp edges of a cookie with melted peanut butter on top. I mean straight PERFECTION!
These cookies are not only delicious but they are the easiest cookies to make! Just a few simple ingredients, packed with fiber and protein!
Peanut butter and chocolate are two of my absolute favorite flavors together. I love how the creamy peanut butter offsets the sharp notes in chocolate and adds depth to both flavors. When baking with protein powder, there is a delicate balance of adding flavor to make it still taste light and fresh instead of chalky. With vegan protein powders especially, the pea protein adds a grassy flavor to the protein, but this is easily muted with the fat and flavor of nut butter!
