Brown Paper Bag Peanut Butter Protein Cookie
Author: Crabby Housewife
  • 1 teaspoon or a pat of real butter (grass fed is even better)
  • 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter the only ingredient should be peanuts and possibly salt
  • 2 pinches of Splenda or sweetener of choice
  • 1/2 - 2/3 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder
  • Atkins chocolate covered candies optional
  1. In a mug, place butter and peanut butter. Microwave on high for 20-30 seconds or until melted. Stir.
  2. Add Splenda. I don't actually measure this. I just pinch some between my thumb and forefinger and throw into the mug. I do this twice and the taste is just right. Stir thoroughly.
  3. Add 1/2 scoop of the protein powder. Stir. The mixture should be like regular cookie batter in consistency or similar to Play-dough. If not, add a bit more until you get it there.
  4. Lay out your paper bag (still closed). Spoon the cookie mix on top and spread it out to about 1/2 inch thickness.
  5. If you are adding candies, press into the top now. You could also add nuts, sugar free sprinkles, sugar free toffee or other item of your choice.
  6. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Allow to cool for a minute and then eat right off the bag with a fork.
Recipe Notes

Want something different? Try using 1 Tablespoon of butter, leave out the peanut butter, add fresh berries for a raspberry flavored sugar cookie.
You could also replace the vanilla whey with chocolate for a chocolate cookie. Yum!
