Small Batch PB Protein Cookies

If your tired of the usual breakfast oatmeal or snack bar, here’s a recipe to help you stay on track for 2018. These cookies are chewy, sweet, and salty with a slight crunch from the pepita seeds. They take less than 5 minutes to whip up and only 9 minutes to bake. In other words, when you get a peanut butter cookie craving, you can make these in the same time it would take you to drive to a local bakery.

If you like more of a crunch throw in whatever add-ins you like.

Notes: if you use unsalted peanut butter, you may want to throw in a pinch of salt. Likewise, if you use unsweetened peanut butter, you might want to use 1 tablespoon versus half of maple syrup.
