Peanut Butter Treats

By Puppet79

Peanut Butter Treats
  • 1 cup Teddie Bear Natural peanut butter (you could use no salt added PB)

  • 1 large egg (or egg substitute)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 12 teaspoons of stevia blend bulk

  • 1 cup Now Sports unflavored whey protein

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.

  3. Cream the peanut butter and egg mixture together. Mix whey protein and stevia in a separate bowl. Combine t he peanut butter mixture and the dry ingredients then add vanilla.

  4. Roll teaspoon size ball of mixture and place on cookie sheet. Use fork to flatten peanut butter balls making a criss-cross pattern.

  5. TIP: Dip fork in a bit of stevia between each use to help prevent the fork from sticking to the cookie batter as you create the fork pattern.

  6. Bake for 12 minutes. Sprinkle a wee bit of Stevia on top as they come out of the oven and they will look especially nice.

  7. *When I doll out my treats I usually get 20 of them on my cookies sheet, 5 rows of 4. They don't spread out too much when baked. The protein powder makes them a heavy treat…very tasty but one is enough. You won't feel deprived this one!

This looks like a perfect recipe for me who is trying to gain weight without all the carbs. I will try it as soon as I can get the whey protein.

Whey protein is available at Walmart, Target or GNC…with prices rising accordingly. It is the protein that the weight lifters add to milk and it frequently comes in flavors but can be found unflavored which works well for this recipe.

And this is a treat…not an everyday item. I wouldn't suggest it for anyone with cholesterol issues. For an occasional treat or to boost protein while feeling like one is treating oneself, t his is a a nice way to go.

Surely the fat content is wrong… is that because of the peanut butter? Also, where in the world to you get the Whey Protein?? is that an expensive ingredient?
