Sweet Cacao Nibs Protein Cookies

Have you ever tried PB2. If not go check it out. It has 85% less fat calories than traditional peanut butter.

I love using PB2 in my smoothies so why not try it in some protein cookies? 

If you are craving an afternoon snack try these cookies that are packed with healthy fats and protein. This recipe makes six cookies.

Ingredients:


-1/4 Cup Of Ground Flax Seeds

-2 Tsp Ground Chia Seeds

-1 Banana


-1 Scoop of PB2

-2 Scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl add 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder and 1 scoop of PB2. You can also use natural peanut butter if you do not have PB2.

Mash the banana, PB2 and protein powder until creamy.

Add the flax seed, chia seeds and dark chocolate chips

Grease a baking sheet and drop about 1 1/2 tbsp sized drops onto the baking sheet. The cookies will not rise so spread them out in a circular shape.

Bake for 7-10 minutes or until cookies are firm and edges are golden brown.
