Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

I said to Brian, “I want to make something for dessert…” That’s how it started. He said, “make some peanut butter cookies.” And well, here it is. I found inspiration in a recipe I saw online, and of course, changed things up a bit…

Per cookie, it’s good post workout fuel. Providing some simple carbohydrates, complex carbohydrates and of course, some protein (sure, not body builder protein levels…but some…remember, too much of anything isn’t good!). Oh, and there’s healthy fats from the peanut butter, too!
