These no bake protein cookies are a real deal! Sweetened with only 4 dates per whole batch, they curb the sweet tooth craving without ruining your waistline. My cravings are the worst at night, after dinner or in the afternoon. I’m sure you can relate.:)
I first made these no bake protein cookies into protein balls. Then a thought of holding an actual cookie that is chewy, crunchy and chocolatey wouldn’t leave me. So, I turned my balls (sounds weird, I know) into cookies and they were to die for! Without guilt!
The recipe literally takes 15 minutes to make and then just let cookies harden in the fridge for about an hour. You can use any of your favourite protein powder. It doesn’t even have to be chocolate. It has to be naturally sweetened for the best results. I used plant-based Orgain creamy chocolate fudge.
If you are on a really strict nutrition and watching macros, feel free to skip the peanuts. Also you can use any nuts or seeds. Also if you have time, it would be great to melt some chocolate chips and drizzle on top.
