Gooey Choc Chip Protein Cookies

I have been trying to make these cookies for about 2 weeks now. Today I actually nailed the recipe!!! These cookies are nice and soft.

Just before you eat one make sure you pop it in the microwave for a couple of secs and serve with it warm with a little bit of Greek yoghurt on the side.


Calories 126 (per cookie)

40g rolled oats
100g banana, mashed
10g vanilla protein powder (I used Maxine's – Vanilla Ice cream flavour)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp chocolate and cinnamon scroll dust/cinnamon
1 tbsp peanut butter
20g 70% dark chocolate, cut and into small chunks
2g grinded salt

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees (fan forced) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine the mashed banana, rolled oats, protein powder, baking powder and cinnamon and stir to combine.
Stir in the diced chocolate into the mixture.
Scoop 1 tablespoon of mixture and place onto the baking tray.
Once all biscuits are placed on the tray, push down a little with a fork.
Dollop a little bit of peanut butter on the top of each cookie.
Place biscuits into the oven for 10-15 mins. Keep an eye on your biscuits so they don't burn..
