Almond Butter Whey Cookies

13 Sep

I’m really not much of a baker.

I wish I was a good cook. I do enjoy it, but I loathe the mess.

Anyway, do I have a recipe for you that I actually tried! This is now a What I Made Wednesday.

Almond butter whey cookies!

They are super delicious and simple tasting as well as simple to make. I got the recipe from Oxygen Magazine and I only modified like one ingredient.

They call for:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp of almond butter
  •  1 scoop of whey protein powder (I used pea protein powder)
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 packets of NuStevia, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 cup of carob chips (I used 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips)

1. Preheat oven to 350*
2. Combine all ingredients together in a mixing bowl and mix with hands (clean, preferably)
3. Shape the dough into golf-sized balls. Place onto  cookie sheet. Bake for about ten minute and serve.

Viola! Easy as that.

The almond butter whey cookies makes 12 servings. These cookies are great for an afternoon snack that help you increase lean muscle because they are high in protein and contain moderate carbohydrates.

    I love to bake, but simple recipes like these are probably my favorite. Especially when they have chocolate, and will help me deal with the afternoon munchies 😀

    I love your attitude towards running. Its so motivating. I just took 6 days off after my 10K and felt like I needed some rest and a break from the ‘you have to train due to your 10K’-pressure, but now its so strange to have 6 days without a single run, after 2 month of regular training, that I can’t wait to go on the treadmill tomorrow morning before my yoga class.

    Oh and don’t get me wrong. I definitely share your opininon about treadmill running. I prefer to go on and on outside (even if its just a monotonous sports ground), but its getting cold but I am feeling cold so easily and my lung hurts from cold air, so theres no real choice with winter coming close.
