It’s 3pm…


You haven’t eaten since 12:30 and you can feel your muscles cannibalizing themselves.  Right about now that birthday cake offered to you an hour ago doesn’t sound that bad.  Heave a scoop of protein powder on that and the macros should work out somehow…  You now have three options :  A scoop full of dry protein powder, that protein bar that’s been sitting at your desk for the last 3 weeks sporting ingredients that appear to be written in Latin, or something better.  Satisfy your muscles and sweet tooth with our PB&J Power Cookies.  Eat, LIFT, Get Jack3d.




  • 3/4 Cup  Natural Peanut Butter (Optional use higher protein peanut butter)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 3/4 Cup Splenda or Stevia
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar Free Jelly or Preserves




Combine all of the cookie ingredients except for the jelly in a medium-sized bowl. Stir well until fully combined. Roll into twenty 1 inch balls and place on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Press into the center of each cookie with your thumb. Place about 1/2 tsp of jelly in each center. Bake in a preheated 350 degree (F) oven for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool before removing from baking sheet and enjoy! Don’t forget to add a ModernPROTEIN shake to super swole your snack!
