A thin mint cookie ..

Made with protein powder?

Thin Mint Fudge Covered Cookies (Protein Powder optional) - Finally .. a homemade snack made with protein powder that doesn't make one feel like they have to settle. They really are that good!

Yes .. it's nutrition stats DO look good .. hummm .. idk ..

I was skeptical .. as I reached for my protein powder .. we'll just make 1/2 a batch ..

You see .. to date .. homemade protein snacks have made me feel like I was settling .. if even just a little bit.

It's not like any of them were BAD .. but something about the taste and texture that weren't quite on for me the way my favorite chocolaty treat was. The mental conversation I had with myself while it rolled around on my tongue .. “yeah, it's not to bad .. I could live with this”

Thin Mint Fudge Covered Cookies (Protein Powder optional) - Finally .. a homemade snack made with protein powder that doesn't make one feel like they have to settle. They really are that good!

So I faithfully made a batch .. As they came out of the freezer .. they were love at first bite

Everyone who's tried them since has asked for the recipe and had the same response .. “They actually TASTE good!”

Yep .. no more settling.

Enjoy!

ps:  I've made these a number of times since .. they key is to put a small amount of cookie dough into the bottom of the muffin tin .. just barely cover the bottom. That way .. when you dip them in peanut butter chocolate protein fudge .. you've got a true thin mint cookie

pps:  The secret to a really good cookie? Let the dough rest 72 hours before baking your cookies .. here

    God these look so good. I’m a bore chocoholic and am munching on a bar of Cadbury’s choc as we speak. I also love mint and the fact there is added protein in there to is a win win for me.
