Sugar Free High Protein Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter

1 egg

1/2- 2/3 cup Monk Fruit (depends how sweet you like them- I prefer a little less sweet so 1/2 Cup was perfect for my tastebuds)

1 Scoop vanilla protein powder

 

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium sized bowl mix the monk fruit and protein powder. I use a wooden spoon but you can use an electric mixer as well.
