No Bake Cookies

I always loved making No Bake Cookies as a kid! We were actually allowed to make them on our own because we didn't need an oven! Of course we didn't actually measure everything correctly, but the end product was usually at least edible! 

As soon as MTS Nutrition came out with No Bake Cookie flavored whey, I knew exactly what I wanted to make! 

Ingredients are slightly different from what you use for your normal no bake cookies.
MTS No Bake Cookie Whey, quick oats, peanut butter, sugar free syrup, unsweetened applesauce, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla, and sweetener of choice.  

You can experiment with other flavors and brands of whey.

Any kind of peanut butter or nut butter will work. I went with good old Smooth Operator.  
Feel free to play around with some fun flavors! You could even try PB2 for a lower fat option. 

Melt the peanut butter, applesauce, milk, syrup, and vanilla on the stove top.
Cook on low for just a few minutes until everything is blended.  

Stir in your protein powder and sweetener of choice.  
Depending on the type of peanut butter and protein, you may not even want the additional sweetness. I added one Splenda packet.  

Remove from heat and mix in the oats.  If needed, add a little additional liquid so you can completely coat the oats.  
It should be thick and sticky! Feel free to add in some cinnamon, cocoa powder, or any other fun seasonings.  

Drop the batter onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I got one dozen cookies from this batch.  
Press them down a bit and stick them in the fridge for about an hour.  

There you have some scrumptious, protein packed cookies!! 
These are great for breakfast!! Like eating a bowl of hearty oatmeal, but in cookie form! 

Store any leftovers in the fridge.  They will keep for about a week.  Honestly though...they will be in your belly before then! 
You can keep these cookies simple...

Or get a little more creative!! 
I added some raisins to the batter and a few chips in the middle! Mini chips, white chocolate, and butterscotch! Like little bird's nests! 

What flavors will you come up with?!
The possibilities are endless! And all delicious!
