Healthy Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

 Ingredients

  • 1 scoop Cookies & Cream Impact Whey* (30g)
  • 1/2 cup canned white beans (125g / 4.5 oz)
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin (60g / 2 oz)
  • 3 tbsp. egg substitute or egg/egg whites (46ml)
  • Splash milk
  • 1 tbsp. peanut butter (16g / .5 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • Sweetener of choice (4-5 packets)
  • 10 chocolate kisses* (optional)

Method

 1. Drain and rinse beans.

 2. Puree beans, pumpkin, egg, and milk.

 3. Add milk slowly until the mixture is smooth.

 4. Stir in the remaining ingredients (except chocolate kisses).

 5. Unwrap chocolate kisses and set aside.

 6. Pour batter on cookie sheet (use parchment paper or baking mat).

 7. Bake at 350°F for 12 minutes.

 8. Press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie as soon as they come out of the oven.

 9. Immediately place the cookies in the freezer for 5 minutes so chocolate does not melt. Once the 5 minutes is up, remove from the freezer and allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to 5 days.

 Notes:

*Works great with Vanilla, Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, and Cinnamon Roll protein too

*Feel free to leave off the chocolate kisses for a more nutritionally friendly cookie
