High Protein Very Low Carb Almond Butter Cookies

Only 4 ingredients to make these heavenly delicious cookies!  I told you I would not make my recipes complicated or long.

Great fitness or a quick pick-me-up-energy snack or guilt-free dessert for people who do not want to pack on unwanted pounds on their waist or weight!  Also great for pre or post workout bites.  Or a quick metabolism kick start first thing you wake up.  Very low in carbohydrates and high in protein! The good kind of carbs only come from the almond butter.   Here's the recipe!

High Protein Very Low Carb Almond Butter Cookies

What you need:
~2 scoops of any brand that has zero carbs whey protein isolate (I got IsoPure Banana Cream Zero Carb)
~2 whole eggs
~1/2 to 1 TBS stevia powder (taste the dough before you bake to see if you need more or less)
~1 cup of Almond Butter (natural, no added ingredients)

~Mixing bowl
~a spoon
~Silpat or Parchment paper
~Baking sheet, of course

Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.  Line your baking sheet with either silpat or parchment paper. Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and use your hands or a spoon to mix the dough well.  (no need to smother your hands with oil because the almond butter has natural oil in it).  Roll your cookies into balls and place them onto baking sheet.  (About 14 cookies, depends on how big you make them).  Use a spoon to press down the cookie balls (see the picture below).   Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Let these cookies cool for 10 minutes before you eat those.  

Heavenly Delicious Almond Butter Cookies!  I can taste banana in these because I used Banana Cream IsoPure Whey Protein Isolate.  
Ingredients, only 4!  (only 1 egg in the picture but you need 2!)
