A good macro friendly recipe isn’t defined by having 0 g of macros. It’s more about finding classic recipes with a reasonable balance of macros or calories that you can work into your life seamlessly.
Make these cookies, pack 1-2 into your bag or for your dessert and enjoy a cookie a day without eating all your macros away!
There are a few good reasons to have these cookies up your recipe sleeve:
When you’re in the mood for some baking but you know that whatever you make will be a disaster for your macros, these will fit and store in an airtight container.
They’re gluten free!
It’s only 10 minutes of preparation, 1 bowl, 1 tray, 1 spoon and your scale.
They are lower fat and carbs and higher protein than most other cookies.
They contain 5 very basic ingredients.
You can play with the ratios of the ingredients from 50 g more or less of protein powder, peanut butter or brown sugar and you can add chocolate chips if you want! You may get a slightly different consistency but they will still work.
Let’s get started!
This recipe makes 18 cookies
50g Ascent Vanilla Protein, Whey (the vanilla protein takes on a white chocolate flavor when baked, which is why I named them white chocolate cookies!)
200g Peanut butter
200g Brown sugar
50g Egg whites
1/2 tsp. Baking powder
Pre-heat oven to 320 f/160 c and line a flat baking tray with baking or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, add all ingredients. Mix until well combined.
Roll the dough into small balls. This recipe makes 18 cookies and you can roll them even smaller or larger.
Spread the cookie dough out onto the pan and use a fork to gently press the tops of the cookies down about half way.
