Peanut Butter Protein Kisses!

Tired of getting protein from the same ol' savory sources? Try this sweet, protein-packed recipe for Peanut Butter Protein Kisses!

I love protein, but I usually don't expect to receive much of the muscle-building manna from treats, which are usually heavy in carbs, namely sugar; and fat, often saturated. But every so often, I want a sweet hit of protein from a clean treat that will satisfy my deepest cravings. As a result, I'm always on the hunt for protein-packed, nutritious baking recipes. If I can't find one, I'll invent one, like I did with peanut butter protein kisses!

If you're anything like me and enjoy a quick adventure, my peanut butter protein kisses will not disappoint. The recipe is fun, straightforward, and won't take you more than 30 minutes to make. You can bring the kisses to a party as a healthy treat, or freeze them and save them all for yourself.

Whether you save or share, it's hard to go wrong with great flavor, healthy fats, muscle-building protein, and a dose of dark chocolate. Make a batch of kisses yourself and let me know what you think in the comments below!

Ingredients
Topping
  • Hershey's Dark Chocolate Kisses
Directions
  1. Wash your hands. Yes, that's important!
  2. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  3. Mix all ingredients together—except the kisses, of course. A sturdy fork will work in a pinch.
  4. Spray or grease a large cookie tray.
  5. Mold dough into 1-1.5 inch balls and place on the cookie tray about 1.5 inches apart.
  6. Press your thumb in the center of the cookies to flatten the dough and make room for the chocolate kisses.
  7. Bake for 7 minutes.
  8. Take the cookie tray out of the oven, place the chocolate kisses in the center of the cookies, and then put the tray back in the oven for another 2 minutes.
  9. Let the cookies cool before you share them or devour them all. The chocolate will be hot and messy!

Notes

  1. The dough shouldn't stick to your fingers when you're molding the cookies because of the oil in the peanut butter, but getting your fingers damp can help.
  2. Try your own topping variations! You don't have to use kisses. Try Rolos, Reeses, or even eat your cookies topless!

I want to make these and eat them all at one time! But, I'm guessing that wasn't what was intended here.

These were good but I couldn't get them crunchy on the outside. They were also super dry. Like "got milk" dry. Did I do something wrong? They tasted great though.

Heya! I don't think you did anything wrong, these cookies will be a tad on the drier side and if you leave them in the oven even a couple minutes longer then the recipe calls for they end up extra dry.
That said if you want the cookies a bit more moist and soft, you can try substituting the 2tbs of egg whites for another egg or even try adding a few tbs of applesauce which will add a bit more natural sweetness and moisture to the cookies!
Hope that helps :) Thanks so much for the feedback!

something is off with the calorie count on these...i calculate more like 110/serving, using cellucor protein and peter pan all natural pb. That DOESN'T include any topping like the kiss or pb cup. just an fyi for you guys, if you are topping these with something, the cal count is prob a bit higher than listed per serving.
