Fudge Filled Peanut Butter Cookies
Maybe one day I will get over this obsession I have with eating peanut and chocolate together but until that day I will continue to find different ways of fusing these flavors together. At this moment I am very happy with these fudge filled peanut butter delights. Just like most of my recipes, I was able to get almost every single ingredient from Vitacost.com for a low price!
- 3 tbsp. Coconut Flour
- 2 tbsp. Peanut Butter Slim (powdered peanut butter)
- 1 scoop Vanilla Whey Protein (I used Quest Nutrition)
- 1 tbsp. Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
- 2 tbsp. Egg Whites
- 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
- 1 tbsp. Organic Maple Syrup
- 1 tbsp. Coconut Oil
- 2 tbsp. Cocoa Powder
- 1 tbsp. Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Quest Nutrition)
Pre-heat oven to 325f. Mix together coconut flour, powdered peanut butter, vanilla protein powder and baking powder. Add peanut butter and egg whites. Mix until dough forms. Roll dough into 8 balls and press them plat on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 5 minutes. While cooling melt maple syrup and coconut oil together. Mix in cocoa powder and protein powder. Once the cookies have cooled, place about a nickel size of chocolate on the center of four cookies and sandwich with remaining cookies. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden. Enjoy!
