Yes I said wine. Yes I said Shakeology. Yes I love the 21 Day Fix. Both these DELICIOUS chocolate-peanut butter cookies AND red wine are 21 Day Fix approved – just proving one more time this is definitely not some limiting, restrictive diet!
How did this come about? Well, I belong to a wine club with several of my girlfriends and each month we take turns cooking – this month I was tasked with dessert! So what’s a 21DF girl to do? Shakeology cookies, of course!
The recipe is quite simple. The only difficult part was relinquishing some Shakeology that I won’t have for shakes for a few days <sad face>.
1 Cup Natural Peanut Butter (I used low-sodium, creamy)
1 Cup Raw Honey
1 Cup Chocolate Shakeology (If you don’t want them to be super chocolatey you could do 1/2 chocolate & 1/2 vanilla or even try all vanilla)
1/2 Quick Oats
Mix peanut butter, honey, Shakeology, & quick oats in a bowl until combined. Roll batter into aprox 1 inch balls and flatten between palms into cookie shape, leaving cookies aprox. a cm thick. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving (I left them in the fridge over-night.)
21 Day Fix Container Count:
1 cookie = 1 yellow container treat (that’s how I count them, but some count 2 cookies as 1 yellow – I like to be on the conservative side though)
4oz wine = 1 yellow container treat
Original recipe & nutrition information.
Now the wine-pairing part. If you use all chocolate Shakeology they have a very rich chocolate flavor with which I’d recommend pairing a Port, Sherry or Madeira. (For our wine club I grabbed a chilled, sweet raspberry/Merlot mix due to price constraints and it wasn’t great!) If you go with vanilla/chocolate mixed or all vanilla you could go lighter – maybe even a Sparkling Moscato with an all vanilla Shakeology cookie! Enjoy!
