I found this recipe on Instagram-I think it's from DashingDish.com

Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

1 c peanut butter
1 egg
1 egg white
2 T applesauce
1 scoop protein powder (about 1/4 c)
1 c oats
1 c stevia (or any sweetener that measures the same as sugar)
1/8 t salt
1 t baking soda

Mix first 4 ingredients (you can microwave the peanut butter to make it easier to stir together), set aside. In a separate bwl, mix all dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mix until combined. Make into 24 balls ( I used a cookie scoop) and lightly flatten with a fork, place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 6-8 mins.

    Thanks for posting! Those look great.
  • Thanks! And yay for the stevia! :) I love low carb ideas.

    I'm gonna try this with some PB2, and make em into bars, and use chocolate peanut butter protein powder instead. May add some almonds too, mmm..

    Forgot to ask, how is the texture on these? Are they dry, or fairly moist?

    These sound pretty dang good. I may make these later.

    Someone asked about nutrition facts and I plugged it into the MFP recipe calculator. Per cookie:

    120 calories, 12 carbs, 6g of fat, 4g of protein.

    It will kind of depend on your protein powder. I used PlantFusion Vanila Bean (120 cal per scoop of powder) which made 27 cookes for like 75 calories each.

    The texture is like a slightly crunchier peanut butter cookie- I used crunchy peanut butter, so they might be softer if you used creamy peanut butter.

    I used ISO Pure protein powder with my mixture, made 33 cookies ( maybe I made them too small?) but the calories was 81 for each cookie (:
