Chocolate peanut butter protein cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3 scoops Quest chocolate protein powder (or powder of your choosing)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 6 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • ½ cup apple sauce, unsweetened
  • 2/3 cup oat milk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare a cookie pan with a silpat or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a medium size bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
  • In a large bowl, combine all wet ingredients.
  • Next, add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
  • Using a cookie scooper, scoop 10 cookies onto cookie sheet and bake for approximately 15 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through.

Notes

  • If you’d like to drizzle peanut butter on top, I recommend using a natural peanut butter that’s runny. If you don’t carry anything, but Jiff on hand (I get it, I’m a mom to a picky toddler too), simply place 1 tablespoon of peanut butter with 1-2 teaspoons of coconut oil and microwave for approximately 15-20 seconds. Mix well until melted and drizzle on top of each cookie.
