These pb2 cookies are so easy to make, and delicious to enjoy. Made with peanut flour, oat flour, eggs, maple syrup and some spices, you can’t beat the soft, and delicate finish of these powdered peanut butter cookies.

Unlike most of the recipes out there, I didn’t seek to make these powdered peanut butter cookies low calorie or “Extra healthy.”

They just happened because we have a huge tub of pb2, and I wanted to experiment with making pb2 cookies. It’s nice to have a little extra protein in a cookie.

And in fact, it happens to be Camryn’s 4th birthday today (like…how!?), and she was into helping me test these over the weekend for her party.

I like that the addition of peanut powders adds some extra protein, without relying on a processed protein powder. Each of these powdered peanut butter cookies has 7 grams of protein!

Having protein-rich snacks is so key for us. For me, to keep my energy stable while working, but also for kids.

Many of my favorite easy toddler snacks have protein too, so my kids aren’t asking for a new snack every minute.

I’ve already experimented baking with high protein granola using pb2, and in these cookie dough overnight oats, and both came out great.

So, I had my suspicions that this peanut butter powder cookie recipe would be similar.

Did you know a 2020 study found that older adults who took peanut powder increased their muscle hypertrophy and strength?

In other words, pb2 doesn’t just need to just be seen as a low calorie peanut butter, because it definitely doesn’t taste the same as real peanut butter.

I’m of the opinion that if you want real peanut butter, you have to have the real thing.

But, peanut butter flour can have a purpose in muscle growth and the post-workout window (more about pre vs post workout nutrition).

Plus, peanut butter is a plant-based source of leucine, which is great for building muscle and reducing muscle protein breakdown!

I just love to add it to yogurt, smoothies and oatmeal to boost the protein.

I’ll usually add real peanut butter too, but a powder does mix in better, in my opinion.

Ingredients for PB2 Cookies

Here’s what you need for these high protein pb2 cookies (each cookie has 7 grams of protein)!

We buy most of these ingredients in bulk from Costco or Thrive Market, so we always have them on hand.

How to Make Powdered Peanut Butter Cookies

Making peanut butter powder cookies isn’t as difficult as you may think.

The peanut powder acts just like a flour, and when mixed with light and airy oat flour, the result is fantastic.

Unlike my popular coconut flour oatmeal cookies, which are slightly denser, this peanut butter powder cookie recipe is soft, light and delicate.

Start by mixing your wet and dry ingredients separately, adding the wet into the dry.

Using a cookie scooper, form into small cookie shape on parchment paper. I like to then flatten them slightly before baking.

You’ll bake for 8-10 minutes, and then you have a nice healthy treat! That’s right – only 8-10 minutes. They are literally ready in the time it takes you to load or empty the dishwasher and tidy up a bit.

Let them cool on a drying rack for 15-20 minutes, or dig in sooner if you can’t wait.

FAQ

Can I make pb2 cookies without eggs?

I didn’t test these without eggs as a vegan version and I’m not sure they would come out and definitely not with the same consistency. However, you could try using a flax egg.

To store these powdered peanut butter cookies, let them cool completely, and store in a tight ziplock bag or tupperware container on the counter for up to 3-4 days.
