The girls at Buff Bake were kind enough to send over some of their Buff Butters, protein and superfood-infused almond butter! And they are delicious! The first thing I did with the Cookie flavored Buff Butter was turn it into Buff Butter Fudge Bites by freezing it in a silicone mold. Easiest recipe ever, with only one ingredient! (Well, that wasn’t really the first thing I did; first I ate a few spoonfuls!)

And since I have pumpkin on the brain these days, I couldn’t resist making these Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Protein Cookies from their Snickerdoodle flavor!

Notes
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct flavor and texture when baked, I would not try substituting different types of protein powders in this recipe. (See my Recipe Basics video for examples of what goes wrong when you use the wrong protein powder.) Texture-wise you can substitute almond butter for the Buff Butter, but you'd miss out on the great taste (you really do taste the Buff Butter in these cookies!). And if you're not feeling like pumpkin, you can substitute the same amount of cooked, mashed sweet potato, or 2-3 tablespoons of applesauce.
