If you have a sweet tooth, you can make it work for you while still getting that necessary protein in. Check out this recipe for cookies that will fill your meal management system up with a peanut butter protein punch!
Makes 4 cookies.
2 tbsp peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup vanilla pea protein powder
1/4 cup liquid egg whites
1/2 tsp toffee stevia or sweetener of your choice
1/2 tsp butterscotch flavoring
1. Blend all the ingredients together until you get a batter that's similar to dough.
2. Divide your "dough" into four balls and press them with your hands onto a baking tray.
3. If you want to decorate or add a design to your cookies, stamp them before baking.
4. Bake your cookies at 160 C (320 F) for about 25-30 minutes, or until they feel cooked to the touch. If you're a fan of a soft center, you can underbake them a bit. If you prefer that extra crunch, cook them a while longer.

Meal Prep Tip:
For added deliciousness, add some nuts-chopped pecans, walnuts, or macadamia nuts would be awesome here. Is chocolate your thing? Add some dark chocolate chips before baking or top with melted dark chocolate to create a dark chocolate cookie shell!
