PERSONAL REVIEW

Just in time for the holidays! Peanut butter cookies were specially requested by a family member and I was excited to take on the challenge. Packed full of protein and flavor, I hardly need an excuse to have one– pre-workout snack, pre-run snack, with morning tea, post workout protein recovery snack….. looks like I will be devouring some cookies!

The second batch I made with HERBALIFE Formula 1 Pumpkin Spice mix and they came out super tasty. Word of warning— it is very hard to just eat one.
