|Fighter Cookies| AKA No-Bake Protein Cookies

Hey guys, gals and everyone else!

ย I did some baking (kind sorta…staywithme) today after I went to the gym. The irony is strong I know. BUT I thought I’d share what I whipped up. Now full disclosure, the original recipe is from my step-mom Rebecca, she makes these for my dad. (Everyone say hi to my Dad and Rebecca!) My Dad has a serious love for Reese’s peanut butter cups, and that’s basically what these cookies are. I took the basic recipe and added a couple things! Hope you enjoy!

Okay…I admit they kinda look bleh. But I swear they’re delicious!

My crowning achievement is that this ‘fighter cookie’ recipe has been approved by two very picky boyfriends. (At different times…ones a ex…you get the picture) Hopefully you like them too! ๐Ÿ˜‰ OH! BTW these cookies are nick-named ‘fighter cookies’ because of the added protein! The sugar and protein are a great mid round snack for any sports events ๐Ÿ™‚ I just happened to have a fighter on my hands when I first made them.

Ingredients:

1.5 cups protein powder. Now not all protein powders are great for baking. You want the really ‘fluffy’ ones. I hear Quest is a really good baking whey protein, but I used the MyProtein powder that was sent to me and it did great. Like I seriously think I’m just going to use this powder for baking! Check out my review on the brand here.

2 cups quick cook oats.

1.5 cups sugar

.5 cup salted butter

.25 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

.75 cup peanut butter. I used crunchy peanut butter becauseย  like the texture it adds….and because that’s what Alexander brought me when I asked him to stop by the store for me lol.

ALL the chocolate chips (semi-sweet) I meanย  .5 cup would probably do…but I’m not going to rain on your parade here folks.

Directions:

Mix all that dry stuff yo’! Melt the butter and peanut butter. Mix all the wet ingredients in.

I found mixing everything with my hands was just easier. Plus, less dirty dishes!

Plop those suckers down on some wax paper.

Then wait at least a half hour. I took a shower with the boyfriend, no shame.

Eat all the cookies!

Let me know if you make these! I’d love to know what you think ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay Sunny โค
