SNICKERDOODLE PROTEIN COOKIES

SNICKERDOODLE PROTEIN COOKIES

I had to… it was fate! Snickerdoodle Protein Cookies made with Physique Enhancing Science Select Protein in Snickerdoodle flavor. These turned out uber delicious and super soft! If anything, I had hoped for a bit more crunch, but I probably would have needed a bit more oil or butter to make that happen and the macros are better this way (oh well, can’t have everything).

Don’t get me wrong, I still couldn’t stop eating them and would totally make them again only I’m out of Snickerdoodle protein! I swear, the stuff is like like crack. I suppose a vanilla or cinnamon flavored whey would also work, though obviously wouldn’t be exactly the same.

These cookies are the perfect post-workout or anytime snack, and don’t worry and it’s totally okay to have 2… 3… or even 4! Recipe below 🙂

    • Hi Rosie, what I used is baking stevia, which measures cup for cup like sugar. It is NOT the same at pure stevia, as it has maltodextrin added for bulk. If using pure stevia powder or liquid, use only half a teaspoon. Hope this helps!
