Almond cherry protein cookies

A HIGH PROTEIN, HEARTY, HEALTHY COOKIE FILLED WITH ALMOND, ALMOND BUTTER AND CHERRIES.

They’ve got 10g of protein each and they’re filled with goodies like almond butter, cherries and walnuts. They’re sweet enough to feel like a treat around 2pm when everyone is flocking to the ice cream sandwich social break and healthy and hearty enough to double as breakfast in a pinch.

  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
