These cookies are the perfect sweet treat to power up an upcoming workout or just an afternoon slump. Have fun mixing up the add-ins by swapping out the seeds and chocolate for chopped nuts and dried cranberries! The options (and the protein punch) are endless!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (optional)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup HomePlate Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup honey

Directions:

In a large bowl, stir together oats through chocolate chips. Combine peanut butter and honey in a small bowl and microwave about 20 seconds, stir and microwave again until thinned (only a few more seconds). Add to the dry ingredients and stir well! Shape into cookies and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate for 1 hour, then store in a sealed container.

Enjoy!
