Who loves peanut butter?! I do! These cookies are delicious and are perfect as a pre or post workout treat!  My peanut butter protein cookies are vegan, low sugar, contain TONS of plant based protein, and are oil-free! They are a healthy vegan girl’s protein miracle!  I was inspired by the Peanut Butter Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter spread that you buy at the grocery store.  I thought, hmm what a classic combination…how can I transform this into something that is 100% nutritious?! These cookies are my answer to that! Please enjoy and take some to your personal trainer LOL; show them that plant-based protein can totally rock!
