PB2 Chocolate Brownie Protein Cookies

These have to be the SIMPLEST cookies to make that exist.
I recently found a new favorite Protein Bar- “OH YEAH Nutrition Victory Bars.” ANND I’m addicted. They are about 200 calories, packed with 21 grams of protein, 20 grams of fiber and low in sugar compared to most protein bars. They are also gluten free and all natural so there is no added fake sugars. Did I mention they are delicious?! They come in several flavors but so far Peanut Butter Chip and Vanilla Almond are my favorite.

I recently started following the OH Yeah Nutrition Facebook page and came across this genius idea of breaking a bar into 3 pieces, rolling into balls and sticking on a cookie sheet and baking in the oven on 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. I admit, I was very skeptical of the fact that you can turn a protein bar into cookies BUT I am so glad I tried it because they turn into such a tasty treat! I added some PB2 onto my Chocolate Brownie Protein Cookies. YUMM! 🙂 Enjoy!
