New theme to these blog posts – short and 9 out of 10 times SWEET. Okay… actually not much new here. However, this week I realized writing these blogs are kind of a time suck
– not that they aren’t worth it –
I just like to think of my time as a bank account. In regards to writing these posts, I was spending more than I was depositing. AKA making the recipes is depositing – writing about them is spending. I was spending SO much on writing them and
if we’re being honest
no one actually reads an entire blog post. At least I don’t… I click that cute little “jump to recipe” button at the top and if I have a question, I’ll skim through the post.
We all do it, don’t even deny it.
Anyway, I don’t want that to stop me from posting recipes on here so instead of worrying about how long my posts are… I’m just going to write what feels RIGHT.
Now that we got that out of the way…
These cookies are actually one of my newly favorite recipes. I posted them to my Insta on Valentine’s Day and since then have made them 3 or 4 times. They use no flour (one less ingredient aka time saver!!) and are packed with protein from the peanut butter and the collagen.
Now, of course you can use whatever nut or seed butter you like! Just make sure to use one that isn’t too oily as this recipe produces a very oily batter as is.
What gives them the chocolate flavor is the chocolate collagen, plain collagen won’t work here nor will a protein powder.
If you want to change out the caramel filling – GO FOR IT!! These cookies are really adaptable for whatever you have on hand… no need to waste time by going to the grocery store!
Let me know if you make these over on Insta if you make these, I’d love to show you my love!!!
