Does the calorie count accompanying your favorite cookie recipe prevent you from indulging in a holiday delight? Try this protein-packed, gluten-free alternative to the traditional peanut butter cookie!

Please visit  Healthy Indulgences for the original recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened (for a healthier cookie, try 6 Tablespoons coconut oil)
  • ¼ teaspoon pure stevia powder
  • ½ cup (4oz) light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 yolk from a large egg
  • 1 1/3 cup dry roasted peanuts
  • ½ cup plus 2 Tablespoons oat flour
  • 2 Tablespoons (0.5 oz) whey protein powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon baking soda

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Using a food processor, pulse peanuts a few times then process peanuts for 1 minute or until you get a coarse meal. Scrape down sides and grind peanuts until a smooth butter forms. Add softened butter, stevia, sugar, sea salt, vanilla, and egg yolk and process 10-20 seconds, or until creamy. Add oat flour, whey protein, and baking soda to the food processor in circular motions, sprinkling the dry ingredients around the blade. Process for a minute or until ingredients are thoroughly mixed with no streaks of flour present, scraping sides of food processor down as needed during the process.

Remove dough ball from food processor and either bake immediately or refrigerate for later use. Form 20 dough balls, set them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, and press balls slightly flat with your hand.

Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies are slightly browned at edges. Allow cookies to cool for several minutes before transferring them to a wire rack for 10-20 minutes. Cookies will firm as they cool. Enjoy!
