Oatmeal Protein PB2 Cookies (or balls)!

Here I go again:

Baking up a storm...

One Batch.
Two Batch.

And...

Making a mess!

Oopsie!

After having purchased my PB2...

It didn't take long to get the bright idea to make Protein Peanut Butter Cookies! (Actually, it took less than 24 hrs!)

As usual...

I got out my necessary ingredients to make it all happen! (I adapted the recipe from my Oatmeal Carob Chip Cookies)

**FUll recipe and instructions will be shared at the end of this post**

I didn't end up using the Almond Breeze or Apple Sauce.
I actually don't know why I even took out the Almond Breeze lol

To keep things simple...

I added all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl...

Oatmeal and Chocolate PB2.
Original PB2.
Chocolate Protein Powder.

Followed by...

The wet stuff!

Once all the ingredients were found mingling together...

I mixed them up!

It smelled so yum.

I then...

Spooned the mixture onto a non-stick cookie sheet and placed it in the oven to bake at 325F for about 20-25 minutes!


While patiently waiting to test out one of my cookies...

I tried (key word being 'tried') taking pictures of Teddy Bear! (And giving Zippy Bears a little break from my little monster!)

This is what ended up transpiring:


After one hectic photoshoot...

My cookies were finally ready!

Mmmm. Mmmmm. Good.

Let me just say...

It was worth all the energy that went into taking pictures of  my FUr ball!
