It’s safe to say that I have an obsession with chocolate–and peanut butter–and protein. I don’t go a day without these three things and why should I? I mean, not only are they delicious, they are also healthy for you.

Chocolate (especially raw cocoa powder) is loaded with antioxidants, peanut butter has tons of healthy fats and also tastes freakin’ delicious and protein powder is just the greatest gift you can give to your muscles.


So I took my three favorites things in the world and made the softest double chocolate protein cookies (AKA death by chocolate).

Look at those chunks and all their chocolaty glory!

I used my two favorite brands: PEScience and Nuts ‘N More. Protein powder (especially whey) can be tricky to bake with but I’ve found that PEScience not only tastes absolutely amazing and they have an huge assortment of flavors but it bakes well too! Get 30% off all PEScience products when using code PBCHOCO.

Nuts N’ More is hands down, my favorite peanut butter (and I’m not even being paid to say that!) for a few reasons.

  1. The taste and texture are out of this world and incomparable to other brands!
  2. The MACROS! Oh my gawd the macros are insane. I do IIFYM and Nuts ‘N More is a  freaking blessing because it only contains 10g of fat per 2 tablespoons (that’s about 6g less than the leading brand).
  3. There’s a chocolate flavor–WIN!

Unfortunately, I do not have a discount code for you with the peanut butter. I buy mine from VitaCost.com because it’s the cheapest and they deliver the next day!

Anyway, I know what you came here for–this delicious recipe!
