CRUSH IT! Café: Protein Peanut Butter Blossoms

It's time for another Crush It Cafe recipe video! With yet another holiday fast approaching in Easter, it can be difficult to resist temptation with all the sweet, fatty and salty treats floating around. However, just because some of these treats aren't great for your diet doesn't mean you need to stop eating sweets - especially when you can pack them full of protein!

For a quick review of the ingredients and directions, scroll down and watch the short video near the bottom of the page. Otherwise, continue reading from here for a more detailed look including step-by-step instructions and a breakdown of the ingredient list.



  • 2 scoops Core Vanilla ISO Protein Powder
  • 2 tbsp PB2 or powdered peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup stevia or other sweetener
  • 8g raw turbinado sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • Approximately 16 Hershey kisses, unwrapped
  • Optional Coating - 1/4 cup turbinado sugar




  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients until dough forms.
  • 3. Scoop and shape dough into 1 inch balls (for more traditional peanut butter blossoms, roll balls in turbinado sugar in a shallow bowl). On non-greased cookie sheet, place balls about 2 inches apart.
  • 4. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until edges are light golden brown or have a slightly cracked appearance. Immediately press 1 Hershey kiss in the center of each cookie. Be sure to not press too hard but far enough for the chocolate to stick to the cookie. Remove cookies to cooling rack.
  • 5. Enjoy!

*If you notice your chocolate is melting, you can place cookies on the cookie sheet in freezer for 10 minutes*
