Peanut butter + chocolate... 🙌

These are so easy to throw together in a pinch when you're getting ready for a holiday party or cookie swap. Plus, they're made with organic Tone It Up Protein, which means they're essentially a post-workout meal... right!?



  1. OMG!!! This is seriously the best “swap” post you guys have ever done!!! I make these peanut butter blossoms every year. Since my journey with Tone It Up though, I haven’t indulged in eating them myself. Instead I just make them for my friends and family. Now I can finally make my own healthy batch! YAY!!! (I apologize, but seriously, is there really anything better than peanut butter and chocolate? I think not lol).

  2. I know! I’ve been craving peanut butter all week. I’m making them with a girlfriend tomorrow with some wine :)

  3. My favorite Christmas cookie that my Mother makes every year. Now it’s my turn, much healthier!

  4. Yeah, I’m also wondering if these recipes would still work without the egg whites? Just replace with flax egg I’m guessing.

  5. Is there something we can use instead of Perfect Fit for these different cookie recipes? Just wondering for kids :)

  6. I’m wondering the same thing Julia, can we replace the protein with a different ingredient since i’m out currently?

  7. Love healthy Tone It Up Cookies! I followed the recipe but added just a tad of Almond Milk (since the last time I made the peanut butter cookies from tone it up they were extremely dry) and this time they were the same :( When I attempted to put the chocolate in the middle they crumbled! Still tastes good but need a huge glass of water afterwards haha

  8. I was so excited to make these cookies but they were super dry and crumbled when I added the chocolate kiss. I thought maybe I was pressing too hard so I tried just lightly putting it on top, but when I tried to pick it up it crumbled again :-( Still delicious though!! Any tips?

  9. This is such an amazing idea. I was so excited to make them….they looked perfect….but were incredibly dry to the point i couldn’t even put an M&M on it without it crumbling. They just crumbled like sand castles. I followed the directions. Very frustrated :(

  10. After seeing that they turned out dry for some people I did some adjustments. Instead of egg whites I did one whole egg and instead of protein powder I did 1/4 cup coconut sugar + 1 packet of Truvia. They turned out perfect!

  11. Recently made these and bc of everyones comments about being dry I used 1 whole egg + tsp of egg whites
    came out perfect! the only problem is trying to eat just one! :)

    also put coconut oil on my hands while rolling them up which helped as well!

  12. I’m super excited about these! However, I tried Colleen’s suggestion of whole egg + 1 tsp egg whites and rolling them with coconut oil on my hands suggested. But mine also crumbled when I put the kisses on them. Still delicious though!

  13. I need to be legume free so I can’t use the TIU protein, but the baked good recipes (muffins, donuts and now cookies!!) All look so good – I really want to try them. I have plenty of paleo recipes, I just want to be part of the TIU fun : )
    I have a paleo (collagen) protein that I use for smoothies, but it just doesn’t work for the baked recipes. Has anyone made these, or any of the baked good recipes with any success without the protein powder? Can you just substitute the same amount of almond or oat flour or is it more complicated than that?

  14. Just made these while listening to Christmas Classics – so festive and fun! So excited to nibble on these as treats throughout the week while getting in the festive spirit. Love it!

  15. Agreed with all of the above comments about them being super dry and falling apart when adding the kiss 😭 They tasted delicious but I didn’t read the comments before making them to see the suggestions given to help them not be that way. I was going to give them as a gift to a TIU friend, but I’m not sure I can move them without them falling apart 😩
