Flourless PB protein cookies!!
Most of you know, I have a problem with peanut butter cookies. I could literally eat a whole batch… or two. So I did some searching, and I found a recipe awhile back. I can’t remember who’s blog I found it on, but if it’s your recipe: send me a message and I’ll pop your URL on this. :) They’re flourless, and much better than your average sugar filled cookies.
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used BodyFortress)
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I used Crazy Richard’s creamy PB)
5 tbsp liquid egg whites
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
OPTIONAL: 1 tbsp chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life GF/SF/DF chips)
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together. Spray a cookie sheet with baking spray, and spoon the mixture onto the cookie sheet. I make 6 rather large cookies with the recipe, but you could make more to change the macros in each.
BAKE FOR 12 MINUTES! :)

Personally, I think they’re pretty good. Of course they’re not as moist as your average PB cookie. They’re a bit drier than most, but not disgustingly so. I fudged up my recipe a little though, and may not have added a full 5 tbsp of egg whites. I would also consider not using the vanilla extract, because the protein powder adds enough of the flavor. All in all, I’d give them an 8/10. :) Maybe next time, I’ll try a different add-in like shredded coconut. Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll have another. ;o)

Peanut Butter Banana Soft Serve
Recipe Note: If you do the method without an ice cream maker, you may need a tablespoon or two of milk to get the correct texture.
4 over ripe bananas (you can use ripe bananas but it will not be as sweet)
2 tablespoons peanut butter
If you have an ice cream maker:
Toss bananas and peanut butter in food processor or blender. Puree. Transfer to ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Serve immediately if you would like it as soft serve, or freeze for a harder, classic ice cream texture.
If you do not have an ice cream maker:
Slice bananas and freeze until completely frozen. Place bananas and peanut butter in a super powerful food processor or blender. And blend/puree until completely smooth. Serve immediately if you would like it as soft serve, or freeze for a harder, classic ice cream texture.
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 heaping tablespoon flour
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon milk
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar (give or take)
- In a small bowl, whisk together egg, brown sugar, baking powder,…
I think I’ll make this for myself on my birthday. This coming Friday! Woooo turning 17! :)
If I can calculate up the calories, I’ll definitely try this :)
