Peanut butter! YUM!!
I don’t know why but it’s so tasty! Most people I know can’t get enough of the stuff! It’s definitely hard to limit how much you eat. I have to force myself to stop putting the spoon in for more.
Turn peanut butter into a cookie and wham!! even more potent!
However, many PB cookies are loaded with sugar. I’ve created a recipe to increase protein and lessen sugar. The cookies are also gluten-free.
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 scoop protein powder (I used a chocolate peanut butter kind)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup almond milk (make your own homemade almond milk)
1/4 cup almond flour (make your own with the almond meal from the homemade almond milk)
Pre-heat over to 350. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Make 20 small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Enjoy the cookies!! Although these are healthier than most peanut butter cookies, you still want to consider how many you eat at a time :)
