Protein Power Cookies

Dessert, Snacks

OK, talk about workout recovery and yum! These power cookies are quite powerful. They are great for post workout recovery or a nice pick-me-up snack. Even kids will love them! They taste great and they even have my protein and greens servings in them from my Vega protein powder (AF link). Not only can the protein restore your body, but even the banana in the cookies can serve as a great way to replenish your blood sugars too if you are a little low after a tough workout. These are a great portable snack to pack up in your gym bag or even to work. Low carb, low sugar, can’t lose.

    **OR 1 packet of sugar free hot chocolate mix or cacao powder
    * if you do not have chocolate protein powder, then you can use any regular flavor protein powder (original or vanilla) and then use 1 packet of sugar free hot coco mix to make your cookies still chocolatey
