Low Carb Peanut Butter Protein Cookies

·2 tbsp of peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, up to you)

·1/2 cup of almond flour (aka ground almonds)

·1/4 cup of vanilla pea protein powder

·1/4 cup of liquid egg whites

·1/2 tsp of toffee stevia or your sweetener of choice

·1/2 tsp of butterscotch flavoring

Directions

1. Blend all the ingredients together until you get a batter that's similar to dough.

2. Divide your "dough" into four balls and press them with your hands onto a baking tray.

3. If you want to decorate or add a design to your cookies like I did, stamp them before baking.

4. Bake your cookies at 160 C (320 F) for about 25-30 minutes, or until they feel cooked to the touch. If you're a fan of a soft center, you can under bake them a bit. If you prefer that extra crunch, cook them a while longer.

Once brownies have cooled spread mint fudge frosting on top. And top with chocolate chips if desired!

Place mint fudge brownies in fridge to let the frosting set before slicing.
