Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies

So good, even Grizzly wants some…  (though I know what you’re thinking… dogs will eat anything)… so you’re going to have to just trust me on this one.

Looking for a good pre and post workout carb load?  What better time to get your carbs in than right after a workout and what better time to enjoy some delicious protein rich, gluten-free cookies?  They are kind of like a cookie dough protein bar, but better 🙂

These cookies can be made sugar free as well, just substitute in the Stevia for the sugar below.  I made these for the first time for a group of power-lifters competing in a local raw lifting event to keep them energized and well fed and they just ate them up (literally).  

Keep in mind, these are gluten-free but not grain free, I felt the nut flour may be a little too heavy in this case.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix
  • 2 scoops Vanilla Protein powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar OR  5 packets Stevia (can change packet # to taste)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Organic butter
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Directions:  

Preheat oven to 350˚.  Combine Pamela’s baking mix and protein in a large bowl.  In a medium bowl, whip eggs and add softened butter, vanilla & sugar.  Pour the liquid contents into the dry ingredients and mix.  Lastly add the oats and the peanut butter chips to the mix.  

Lightly grease baking sheet with coconut spray oil.  Scoop desired size cookie dough onto baking sheet (4-15).  Bake for 12-15 minutes, remove from oven and let cool.  

Eat as a pre-workout (1 hour out) treat to load glycogen stores for a killer workout.  

Until next time…
