This recipe is for the ‘hangry’ child who comes home from school and cannot think until they have eaten.  Do you know that child?  Or perhaps you are that parent?  I know I am when I am hungry, I cannot focus and boy am I grumpy! This recipe is full of quality protein to balance blood sugar, nutrient dense fats for our brains, and naturally sweetened fruit for a bit of carb to fire up our brain.  You can always change the nut butters up so it taste different every time.

Ingredients:

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough

2 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp Mayver’s All Natural Peanut Butter

1 tbsp coconut sugar

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

tiny pinch sea salt 1 tsp water

Peanut Butter Banana Shake

2 very ripe bananas, peeled, sliced, and frozen

1/4 cup unsweetened milk of your choice

1 tbsp Mayver’s All Natural Peanut Butter (or any of Mayver’s nut butters)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Method:

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough

  1. Combine flour, peanut butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, and sea salt and use a fork to mix until crumbly.
  2. Add in the water and mix again until just incorporated.
  3. Scoop out about 2 teaspoons of the mixture, roll into a ball, and repeat. It yields approximately 4 cookie dough balls.
  4. Pop in freezer until ready to use.

Peanut Butter Banana Shake

  1. In a food processor, combine the banana, nut milk, peanut butter, and vanilla. Pulse a few times and then process until thick and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  2. Add 2 of the cookie dough balls and pulse 5 to 10 times to roughly chop.
  3. Scoop into 2 small glasses.
  4. Crumble remaining peanut butter cookie dough balls and sprinkle on top.
