Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Happy 2017! I can hardly believe we are already 3 days in to the new year. 2017 is off to a great start, because yesterday I whipped up these delicious and HEALTHY Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies. If you have read some of my other recipes, you already know how much I LOVE chocolate and peanut butter together!
We all have a little bit of a sweet tooth, right? I always love ending my meals with something sweet; and these Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are the perfect way to indulge in two of my favorite foods (dark chocolate AND peanut butter) while still staying on track towards my fitness goals. Sticking to a New Year's resolution to live a healthier lifestyle can be tough, especially after the first few weeks of the year pass. If you start to feel like giving up: remember why you started.
These Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies are super quick and easy to make, are low in sugar, and have 7.4 grams of protein. They are a great option for a satisfying and filling breakfast to make ahead of time and grab on your way out the door in the morning; and the dough is just as (if not more) tasty as the baked cookies. With the combination of creamy peanut butter, old-fashioned rolled oats, Quest Nutrition Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder, egg whites, and dark chocolate chips, these cookies are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth while helping you achieve your goals for 2017.
