Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

He’s at it again!

NASM certified personal trainer Adam Cole is truly inspirational. He walks the fitness walk in his own life and changes the lives of his personal training clients at HIIT Quarters. He is also an extreme practitioner of #balance, holding the firm belief that quality fuel should be fun & delicious. Adam fuses his nutritional expertise with his mad baking skills to concoct treats that he and his clients feel good about eating.

His thought process

By working with whole foods and natural ingredients high in satiating good fats (he is a Paleo diet enthusiast), he avoids ultra-processed sugar and corn syrup-filled ingredients. This ensures his treats support training while taking care of his sweet tooth.

The supplements

Promix Grass-fed Whey and Promix Peanut Butter Protein are staples in Adam’s pantry. Since he’s started using them, he has noticed big differences in his own performance and physique. We think Adam’s focus on clean ingredients speaks volumes. It is what matters most to us, too.

Mix up his amazing recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Cookies for a snack that feels decadent while keeping your macros in check. Each cookie is packed with protein, healthy fats, and most importantly, FLAVOR.

A word of caution from Adam – doubling and even tripling the recipe might not be enough when sharing these with friends and family.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

Dry Ingredients:

  • 2.25 cups almond flour
  • 6 scoops Promix Peanut Butter Powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Chocolate chips (these are technically dry and will not be added until the dough is fully composed!)

Wet Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 8 tbsp coconut oil (melted in microwave or using double boiler technique)
  • 3 tbsp almond butter
  • 10 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, then set aside.
  3. (Make sure you’ve melted your coconut oil!)
  4. In a separate bowl, use a hand mixer or a KitchenAid stand mixer to combine the wet ingredients together.
  5. Once thoroughly mixed, gently add the dry ingredients and mix them in a little bit at a time. Once all ingredients are fully combined, you should be left with a batter that is somewhat sticky & cookie dough-like.
  6. Add chocolate chips (about 1.5 – 2 cups worth, but you can always use more or less depending on your preferences).
  7. With clean or gloved hands, roll out 1.5 inch balls and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes or until a fork or toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Allow them to cool for at least five minutes before digging in – this will be the hardest part!
