1. Peanut Butter Protein Cookies
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2/3 cup coconut sugar
2 scoops Element Peanut Butter Protein Powder (approx. 1/4 cup)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
3. Combine the peanut butter, coconut sugar, eggs, and protein powder in a large bowl and mix together until the consistency resembles cookie dough.
(Some peanut butters can be creamier than others - so if your mixture looks a little too watery, you can add a little more protein powder or, if it looks too dry and crumbly, you can add a little more peanut butter.)
4. Scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the batter and roll it into a ball using your hands. You may need to wet your hands with a few drops of water to keep the batter from sticking.
5. Flatten the ball between your palms and then place on the prepared cookie sheet.
6. Repeat with the remaining dough, leaving space in between the cookies on the baking sheet.
7. Using a fork, press down gently on each cookie to create criss-cross marks. If the fork sticks, you can dip it in water as necessary.
8. Transfer the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies just slightly start to turn brown.
9. Remove from the oven and let sit for a couple minutes to set before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.

2. Fruity Pebble Protein Rice Crispy Treats
3 tablespoon butter
4 cups Fruity Pebbles
10 oz marshmallows
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 scoops Level-1 Vanilla Ice Cream Protein Powder
1. Melt butter over low to medium heat in large non stick pot

3. Add protein powder and vanilla and stir until dissolved and marshmallows are completely melted
4. Remove from heat and add cereal
5. Stir gently (the more gentle you stir, the more tender the bars will be) until cereal is completely coated
6. Transfer mixture to a resealable 8x8 container and gently press into pan. When pressing into pan, get silicon spatula wet and then press. This helps to keep the mixture from sticking to the spatula
7. For best results let set for 30 minutes to set up and enjoy!
