Chocolate Thumbprint Protein Cookies

The ho-hum holiday thumbprint cookie has a shortbread base with a schmear of jam. But I like to switch things up. You know, keep it jazzy and interesting. Besides, I can think of richer, more satisfying combos for dessert. (Shortbread and jam sounds like breakfast!) Thus, we turn to the greatest flavor lovebirds of all time ““ chocolate and peanut butter. Can I get a thumbs up before you press it down?

Chocolate Thumbprint Protein Cookies

Ingredients

1 cup almond flour
4 scoops chocolate protein powder
¼ cup honey
¼ cup coconut sugar
2 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk
¼ cup cocoa powder

Directions

1. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and stir thoroughly.

2. Roll batter into ping-pong-sized balls.

3. Press your thumb into the center of each ball, creating little flavor crevices.

4. Melt ½ cup creamy peanut butter in the microwave for 1 minute and spoon a dollop of PB into the thumbprint of each cookie. If you need more PB, by all means, USE MORE!

Now, lick the spoon clean, bite into one of those cookies and bask in the amazingness.

    Do you bake these cookies, or are they “no bake”???? In the picture, they LOOK baked.
    Also, the peanut butter should be shown in the ingredients list (listed separately so it doesn’t get mixed together with the other six ingredients).
