A couple of weeks ago I finally mastered protein cookies and its about time I posted the recipe for you to give them a try.
Let me start by telling you that the main reason I’ve had problems with these in the past is because when using whey protein, it tends to bake in the oven and form more of a cake like texture. Therefore I’ve found it much better to use a mixture of whey and casein proteins as well as making sure that the cookies are only in the oven for 6-7 minutes. I used what I have but please let me know how they turn out if you’re using a different brand or type of protein. I was also finding them to be a bit dry until I added the magic ingredient (orange zest) and now I think they’re pretty much spot on!
So here’s my delicious “Orange & Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Protein Cookies“!
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 medium orange
- 1/4 cup truvia (stevia/natural sweetener)
- 3/4 cup peanut butter (I prefer crunchy)
- 1/2 cup Reflex Instant Whey Vanilla
- 1/4 cup Reflex Micellar Casein Chocolate
- 100g 85% Cocoa Dark Chocolate
