Just because you are eating a clean, balanced diet doesn't mean you can't enjoy some dessert every once in a while, or even more than once in a while. Try out my Power Protein Cookie recipe below and you won't feel guilty the next time you want to indulge. I like to make as part of a post-workout snack or a healthy dessert...
POWER PROTEIN COOKIES
1 cup uncooked oats
2 tbl spoons of all natural peanut butter
2 bananas (smashed)
20-40 grams of whey protein powder (I use Vital Whey Chocolate)
Handful of raisins or chocolate chips
For extra sweetness and flavor add a tsp of vanilla and/or tbsp of maple syrup and/or cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Add oats to a bowl with bananas and smash the bananas with a spoon.
Add peanut butter and protein powder to bowl and mix ingredients.
Once the ingredients are mixed, stir in raisins or chocolate chips.
Spoon mixture into 5 cookies onto baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes and enjoy!
