Tonight’s workout consisted of brutal burpee box jumps. I can’t even fathom how much I hate burpees, but you add box jumps to the mix and you just completely want to die right then and there.
I had an unbelievable craving today for chocolate chip cookies. I’m not sure why, but my sweet tooth sometimes I gets the best of me. I was also in a baking mood, so I made these cookies. Their protein infused chocolate chip cookies. They give me the satisfaction of fulfilling my craving minus the guilt. I get a little protein out of them and their not overly sweet.
This recipe took me about 5-10 minutes to prep and about 12-15 minutes of baking. Trust me. You’ll be glad you had these!
What you will need:
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce
1-1/2 scoops of protein powder (I used a birthday cake flavor. However, you are free to use what you prefer. Please be careful that depending on the protein powder you use -your calorie count may go up.)
1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1/4 cup of PB2 (I used a bit less than what this recipe calls for. Please also make sure you use peanut powder – do not use peanut butter, much higher in fat and calories)
Optional: 1/4 dark chocolate chips (I used less than 1/4 of a cup and mini chocolate chips cuts my calories a little bit more!) You could probably add nuts too if you wanted.
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Coat cookie sheet thoroughly with nonstick spray. Place all of the ingredients in a medium to large size mixing bowl. When you mix it -the texture will be very creamy and not overly thick. Take a spoon and place batter on on cookie sheet Depending on the size of the cookies you make, it will yield more or less than what this recipe calls for. For me this recipe made 6-8 cookies.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
Let cool for however long you want and enjoy.
You can have two cookies for a total of 9-12 g of protein (depending on what you use), 2g of carbs, 3g of fat and less than 100 calories for two cookies. WINNING!
BEWARE: These don’t taste like the real deal, but close enough.
