1 large egg
1 1/2 cup natural peanut butter ( I use smooth and lightly salted)
1 1/2 scoop whey protein powder (vanilla, chocolate or unflavored - I use chocolate)
1/2 cup Sucanat (if you are using sweetened protein powder cut sucanat back to 1/3rd cup)(took me a while to find this, but you can get it at Whole Foods)
1/2 cup almond meal
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350.
1.)In large bowl, lightly beat egg. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
2.)Form into little balls with a spoon or your hands and place on a lightly greased or lined baking sheet.
3.)Bake for 12 minutes. Balls will puff up and lightly brown. Cool for a few minutes before eating.
*Ready in 25 minutes

I realize that not everyone has these things just hanging around the kitchen (particularly the protein powder) But these cookies are totally worth the obscure ingredients for their yummy taste and added bonus of being healthy or "trainer approved" as I've dubbed them. And they stick with you, one of these cookies and an apple will get you all the way through the afternoon . . . if you can stop at one ;)
