Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

We have a new President! Donald Trump! Who woulda thunk it? I remember watching him on Celebrity Apprentice and contemplating his makeup artists need to do a better job matching his foundation to his true skin tone. #pumpkinhead 

Or did she mix up her makeup with a bag of Cheetos?

Speaking of pumpkin! I am back again with an incredible recipe using Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes mix. Guys, they don't endorse me, but dang it they should. I use this mix for everything! I even tried using it as a breading for meat (it was incredible, too). You just can't go wrong. Reason 2,574,841: Peanut Butter Protein Cookies.

When I die and go to Heaven, Jesus will be the first to tell me that calories don't exist, and proceed to hand me a jar of freshly ground honey roasted peanut butter from Whole Foods and a large spoon.

That was kind of what I was imagining while making these moist, warm, doughy cookies. Gobs of peanut butter.

They're too easy to make, too. Even Cheeto Donald could whip them up. But he wouldn't. Gotta leave it to the #NastyWomen to take care of the kitchen.

If you can't be happy about the election, at least be happy about these cookies. 
Happy Baking!
