Low-carb chocolate, peanut butter protein cookie

013

About to head out on a 3 day conference I wanted to bring something small but filling to snack on when the typical free cookies, brownies, and pastries were brought out during breaks between sessions.  I came up with this chocolate and peanut butter cookie that was delicious but also pretty filling with a good dose of protein as well as fat.

One added bonus is they had a slightly crispy exterior which game them an interesting crunch but also preventing them from falling to pieces while transporting in my bag.
