Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

I am the world’s worst when it comes to prepping healthy, convenient snacks. My Pinterest boards are chock-full of nutritious, delicious recipes we’ve never tried. One day we’ll get to them…
In my defense, I’ve been dealing with non-stop morning sickness, which tends to suck the fun out of pretty much anything. Mostly cooking…and, well, eating.
Luckily, these peanut butter no-bakes are easy – throw the ingredients into a pot, stir, and chill. 

Not gonna lie, sometimes I don’t even wait for these to harden. I’ll just grab a spoon and eat the batter straight from the pot. Ha!

Peanut Butter No-Bake Cookies

Ingredients:
•1/4 cup of butter
•Pinch of salt
•2 tablespoons of unsweetened original almond milk
•2 tablespoons of water
•1/4 cup peanut flour (PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter is a good one)
•1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder (I used Pure Protein Vanilla Cream)
•2 tablespoons of Pyure (make sure it’s the kind without maltodextrin!)
•3/4 cup of uncooked oatmeal

Instructions:
1. Melt butter and add salt.
2. Add unsweetened almond milk, water, and peanut flour. Remove from heat.
3. Add protein powder, sweetener, stir well.
4. Slowly add oatmeal 1/4 cup at a time. Spoon onto a plate and refrigerate until solid.
If you’re impatient, just eat the batter as is. No one will judge. 😉

These are wonderful paired with a small glass of milk. The recipe makes about six decent-sized cookies, so you can double or triple it depending on how many hungry mouths you have to feed.
I didn’t run this one by a test group (my sibs), but Logan and I eat all of them in one sitting 99% of the time, just sayin’.

What are your go-to protein snacks?
