Healthy and Tasty:

These cookies are the perfect post-workout snack. They contain over 8 grams of protein per serving (2 cookies) and just enough carbohydrate to help stimulate the uptake of that protein. For a portable snack, make ahead and freeze in an air-tight container. Put a few in your gym bag before working out and they will be perfectly thawed and ready to eat as soon as you finish. What a delicious way to recover!
