Pinterest Protein Cookie

Protein

When I am looking for a snack for my family I am looking for something that is already made and something that we can eat a couple of that can keep us full for a while. Using a combination of Rice Krispies and Peanut Butter with just a hint of chocolate.

This recipe makes about 50 cookies. The peanut butter provides your body with 3 grams of protein which keeps your body fuller longer. I made this my own by adding a handful of chocolate chips to give a hint of chocolate to mine. When I am craving chocolate this is my favorite snack because it keeps me full and gives me the flavor of chocolate.
