    This weekend was Halloween! And I was actually pretty good about not eating too much candy from our bowl. One of my tricks is to postpone that first bite until the treats are almost gone. Mostly because the earlier I start in on eating candy or cookies, the more I want to eat, unless it’s almost gone! Then, I can eat a few and be done. (check out my article on why hyperpalatable foods can be so addictive!)

    It actually works really well for me!

    I also ran a Halloween half marathon this weekend with my sister. It was so fun. I was able to be very consistent with my pacing, which was my goal . Even though my finish time was 7 minutes slower than last year, I stuck to my plan, and as a result, I felt GREAT the rest of the day. Not sick or sore or anything!

    But, I doubt running is why you are here… so, Let’s talk about protein powder!

    I make a lot of recipes with protein powder because it’s such an easy way to reach my protein goals for the day, which is usually 100 grams of protein. (Here’s a list of my top 25 protein foods here)

    When baking, I usually use Optimum Nutrition Vanilla protein powder (you can find that one at Costco, or even Walmart I think, or of course Amazon here). This protein powder bakes very well, and I use it for almost all my recipes.

    I also like Clean Simple Eats if you want some variety in flavors (my affiliate coupon code for 10% off is AMYROSKELLEY)

    How to make protein cookies

    steps for making protein peanut butter cookies

    To start with, I just make these cookies like normal, mix all ingredients together, form into cookies and bake! But the ingredients I used was:

    • The vanilla protein powder
    • Sucralose for a zero calorie sugar, which I’m loving using!
    • an egg
    • and regular peanut butter! I like cheap peanut butter, and we always buy crunchy!
    • Then some vanilla extract for a little extra flavor.

    And that’s it! Print or pin the recipe below. You’ll want to keep this one.
