Peanut Butter Chip Protein Cookies

I can’t be the only one with a PB obsession, right?

The struggle is real in this house with Peanut Butter.  You may have followed a few of my Facebook posts and know I just can’t resist a creamy jar of goodness … so I had to find a way.

You might ask:  what’s wrong with peanut butter?  Nothing, if eaten in moderation; there is no moderation for me and it knocks me out of ketosis with a high amount of net carbs per serving.

So … what does one do?  I ordered the Quest Peanut Butter Protein Powder to make shakes and then I got thinking: why can’t use this for baking if it’s zero net carbs?  I present you with one of my favorite keto cookie recipes so far!

How did I make this recipe?  I love Lori Ballen’s Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe so I adjusted the amount of flour and sugar substitute – next time I will bake for just 1 minute less than usual.
