Almond Butter Protein Cookie

These are a great snack or a good little breakfast on the go. I borrowed the recipe from www.watching-what-I-eat.blogspot.com  with just some minor changes. The Husband does not eat peanut butter so I substituted almond butter (our favorite). Give it a try!

Someone else enjoys these little protein packed cookies too! Supermodels get excited over their protein cookies. Check out Piper below ready for another:) Not a sexy expression, more like a hungry supermodel expression. She says more please!

These cookies are so easy to make.

  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup almond butter or peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Quaker quick oats
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, pecans etc. (optional)
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate morsels (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mash bananas in a bowl and add almond butter. Mix completely. Add applesauce, protein powder, and vanilla extract to banana mixture and mix together. Add oatmeal, nuts and chocolate if using and mix thoroughly. Let dough rest for about 10 minutes. Drop by spoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and flatten into rounds. Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely and enjoy for a treat or snack on the go!

Let Piper know if you like them as much as she does. Have a great day!

Does your pup like cookies too?
