If you’ve never made pb2 cookies, they are cookies made with pb2 powder, or peanut butter powder.

Peanut butter powder is a dry, dehydrated form of peanuts, created by pressing roasted peanuts to remove most of the oil and then grinding them into a fine powder.

Therefore, peanut flour has a lower fat content compared to traditional peanut butter, since most of the oil has been removed.

Some people may see these powdered peanut butter cookies as healthier, but I just happen to like the extra protein from the pb2.

For instance, I love to beef up the protein my granola with pb2 in homemade vegan granola.

I also regularly use pb2 in my favorite cookie dough overnight oats, and both came out great. This is another of those easy pb2 recipes.

Why You’ll Love Pb2 Cookies

This pb2 cookie recipe just happened because we have a huge tub of pb2, and I wanted to experiment with making pb2 cookies.

We love them because:

  • More protein– It’s nice to have a little extra protein in a cookie. It makes them more filling, making you snack less. Each of these powdered peanut butter cookies has 7 grams of protein!
  • Great for kids – When I make snacks, they HAVE to be attractive to my kids because I want to double up my efforts and have snacks for adults and kids in one shot. Our kids love peanut butter flavor in just about everything, so these were a true hit.
  • Back to school snack – These high protein cookies make for a great back to school snack!
  • High Fiber – We love using oat flour in these cookies as well for the additional fiber and micronutrients. Fiber helps to stabilize blood sugar and also helps with satiety.

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 are high in protein mainly so my kids aren’t asking for a new snack every minute.

It makes such a difference when they don’t just eat carbs and sugar all day.

Believe me – I love my carbs and they ARE important. But, we’ve gotta get some protein in there too, and peanut butter flour is a great way to do so.

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 Powdered Peanut Butter 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.

Why peanut powder?

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

Peanut butter flour can have a purpose in muscle growth and the post-workout window, and is a good source of leucine (more about pre vs post workout nutrition)!

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

In these peanut butter cookies with powdered peanut butter, the peanut powder acts just like a flour.

When we mix that with light and airy oat flour, the result in these pb2 peanut butter cookies 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.

FAQs and Tips

Can I make pb2 peanut butter 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.

How to store powdered peanut butter cookies

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

Can you freeze pb2 protein cookies?

Yes, pb2 cookies freeze well. Place in a freezer-safe container, and freeze for up to 3 months. We use stasher bags alot for these.
