Chef Kubiac shared the legendary three-ingredient peanut butter cookie recipe earlier in April, which is one of my favorite cookies recipes of all time.

This is a variation on that, with more added protein to help fill your craving for sweets during this cut season.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein (~1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg

Methodology

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Toss everything in a bowl.

Mix the batter together.

The recipe can make ~24 small cookies or ~12 big cookies. I opted for smaller ones here and measured them out as a tbsp of batter each. Roll them out into balls.

You can either flatten them with your palm or give them the signature peanut butter cookie hatch pattern with a fork.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or when the edges start to brown a bit.

Results

These came out of the oven smelling a tiny bit burnt, but all was good. The peanut butter flavor is pretty overpowering, so I don't taste much chocolate which might make this recipe title a little misleading, but oh well.

The cookie is pretty crumbly, so be careful if you're eating over your keyboard.
