I love finding simple ways to add protein powder into a yummy treat. This cookie has a great sweet salty combo along with sneaking in some protein! Recipe calls for powdered soy beverage and I'm not sure I know what that is but I've used several different vanilla protein powders in this and it comes out fine. I've also used regular sized pretzels and have had success as well.

1. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Whisk together powdered soy beverage with 2 Tbs. water in bowl. Stir in vanilla.
2. Warm peanut butter, sugar, and rice syrup in saucepan over medium heat 2 minutes, or until smooth. Stir in soy beverage mixture. Stir in crushed pretzels and coconut, if using, until evenly combined. Pinch off 1 Tbs.-size chunks of dough, and place on prepared baking sheet to cool. Cool cookies 10 minutes before serving.
No suprise that I love making sweet treats... and giving them as gifts. This is a simple one that everyone seems to love! It comes from Family Circle magazine of all places! I use my favorite local Milwaukee Omanhene chocolate, either the light or dark is great in this.
