Makes (12) 2 oz. cookies
½ cup whey protein powder
1 large egg
½ cup granulated sugar
1 cup peanut butter, smooth *You can also try this recipe with other nut butters!*
1 teaspoon vanilla
1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients and thoroughly combine.
3. Using a medium-sized ice cream scoop, scoop out the dough onto the parchment-lined sheet pan. Keep them about an inch or so apart. Repeat until all dough is portioned. Before putting in the oven, take a fork and press down in opposite directions to get the criss-cross effect on top.
4. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden-brown. Let them cool for 8-10 minutes before removing. Enjoy!
