Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie

This is THE best protein cookie I've ever made!

I've been on the run lately, and found myself grabbing bars or Len and Larry's protein cookies. Which taste great, but I don't love that even their smaller cookie has 15 grams of sugar. So I decided to try to make my own version of Len and Larry's :)

This came out like soft baked cookie perfection for when you want a cookie or two, but don't feel like making an entire batch.


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons PEScience Blondie protein powder (or any other flavor)
1 tablespoon sorghum flour (whole wheat works too)
Dash of cinnamon
1 teaspoon peanut butter
2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
4 teaspoons liquid egg whites
3-4 drops liquid stevia (or granulated is fine- add it to taste)

Chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F

2. Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl. In another small bowl, whisk together the egg whites and pumpkin.

2.  Warm the peanut butter in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Add the peanut butter and wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until combined (don't overdo it!) and a dough is formed.

3. Divide the dough into two. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Form two cookie shapes with the dough and place on the parchment. If using, add some chocolate chips. Bake for about 16 minutes. Allow to cool.
