I’m still working on some protein packed recipes for Emma. This vegan no bake peanut butter cookies recipe is the latest in the line up. In addition to the peanut butter I added a couple scoops of Purely Inspired vanilla protein powder to the recipe to give it an extra kick of protein.
These are incredibly easy to make and if you have about ten minutes you can mix up a batch and have them cooling in no time at all. I used vegan butter and almond milk for Em’s lactose issues, but you can use good old fashioned butter and milk as well. Either will work. I”m actually getting ready to make a batch for Alan and I’m going to try making it with chocolate milk. It will either be a new family favorite or end up in the garbage. Sadly, playing in the kitchen usually nets a few disasters before you find success (kind of like life).
These turned out perfect! Emma’s only complaint was that they were too good. That is a good complaint to have.
