The perfect home-made post workout snack! Egg, rice protein powder and peanut butter combine in home-made protein rich fuel for your muscles. (gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy free; vegan and nut-free with substitutions)
Serves: 20 cookies
  • 1 egg, beaten lightly
  • 1½ cups natural peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons protein powder (see notes)
  • ⅓ cup agave syrup
  • ½ cup plain flour (see notes)
  • ½ cup LSA (ground linseeds, sunflower seeds and almonds)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 170C; grease or line baking trays. Mix all ingredients well in a large bowl.
  2. Form little balls of mixture in hands (about 1 tablespoon for each cookie) and place on baking sheet.
  3. Flatten slightly with your hand and bake for 12 minutes until puffed up and golden brown. Cool for a few minutes before enjoying the soft peanuty goodness.
Flour: Use plain or gluten-free plain depending on needs. Replace some of the flour with lupin, quinoa or coconut flour for even more protein as well as added fibre.
Protein powder: I used vanilla rice protein which is perfect for baking. Whey, soy or pea protein would all be suitable in either vanilla or chocolate flavours.

Recipe Alterations:
Vegan/Egg-free: replace egg with a chia egg (1 tbsp chia seed + 3 tbsp water) or 1 servings Orgran Egg Replacer.
Peanut-free: replace with other nut butter.
Nut-free: replace with tahini, Free-Nut Butter. Replace LSA with flaxseed meal.
