Peanut Chip Cookies 1

Peanut Chip Cookies

Serves: 5 (gigantic cookies) or 12 (small)

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great week! My week has been so busy that I have barely had any time to bake! I am horrified! I have a feeling that this weekend I may be going on a baking binge because I am starting to go through withdrawals! That ‘balance’ that we were talking about in last months WIAW posts has quickly gone out the window! I think it’s time to get that back in line ASAP! ๐Ÿ™‚

I wasn’t going to post this recipe until next week, but I had so many people comment, email and IG me about it, that I figured, why make you all hold out! I know you love gigantic cookies as much as I do, so why not share the wealth! ๐Ÿ˜‰

This recipe makes 5 really, really big cookies or 12 small ones! Please adjust the quantity based on what your nutrition needs are! I know not everyone can fit in a 200 calorie cookie, but if you want ONE big cookie, you could always make a single one and the rest small ones for treats! The choice is yours!

Fit Ingredients

  • 1/2c (40g) vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1/4c+2tbs coconut flour
  • 1/2c baking stevia
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2c (113g) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ACV
  • 1/4c (28g) raw cacao nibs (can sub mini chocolate chips)*
  • 1/4c +2 tbs (42g) roasted and unsalted peanuts, crushed*

*feel free to add more or less of these items. you can also swap them out with any nut, dried fruit, etc you’d like!

Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a bowl whisk together your dry ingredients: protein powder, coconut flour, stevia and baking powder.

3. In a second bowl whisk your wet ingredients: eggs, applesauce, vanilla and ACV.

4. Combine your wet and dry ingredients together.

5. Mix until just combine.

6. Stir in your cacao nibs and peanuts.

7. On a cookie sheet, divide your batter into 5 large (or desired amount) cookies.

8. Bake for ~18-20 minutes. ( remember to adjust baking time if making smaller size cookies)

9. Allow to cool before eating!

 

Yes, Yes, Yes!!! They are amazing!! After reading yesterday’s post about my peanut cravings lately you know this cookie was right up my alley! Peanuts and chocolate, yes please!! Soooo delicious! They are soft with the crunch from the peanuts and cacao giving them the perfect balance! Plus they are literally the size of my hand! So big..and for less than 200 calories, you can’t go wrong!! If you bought this cookie at the store it would clock in around 1200 calories, loaded with fat, sugar and yucky ingredients! No thank you! These are something you can feel good about eating! Don’t ask me how long they lasted…..with those ‘cookie cravings’ I have been having, let’s just say, not long! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Yeah, I'd definitely be making the 5 giant ones option ;D Plus if I made small ones, there's no way I'd only eat one anyway, haha. And yay for not having to wait for cookie recipes! (And pretty excited to see what baking projects you come up with this weekend.)

    Can you explain what types of stevia you are using, like stevia in the raw? Or I have the stevia extract that comes with a tiny little scoop, which is stated as stevia powder, but I can't see myself ever using more than a tablespoon of it. Maybe sum brand names of which you use would be awesome and a great help :)

        Yes, well about 50 miles away, but I will check out their website and see if I can come up with a good comparison, I know if I see it I will have a good idea. I shop at the natural food store and buy my stevia products there but there are many options
