The Best Protein Powder Cookies
Take a break from the shake and boost your protein intake! If you have ever had one too many protein shakes, these protein cookies are for you. They are a great way to add some extra protein to your diet and give the blender a day off. This recipe also makes an excellent protein powder cookie dough if you are feeling lazy.
With only five simple ingredients, making protein powder cookies is a breeze. I often make the dough right before I go to bed on Sunday night, and refrigerate it. That way I have cookies on tap for whenever I am craving a protein boost during the week.
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many rock-hard cookies are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is the best protein powder cookie recipe.
-2 ripe bananas
-1 cup drink wholesome vanilla protein powder
-1 cup old fashioned oats
-2 tbsp peanut butter
-2 tbsp chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet and set it aside. In a medium bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add the protein powder, oats, and peanut butter and stir well to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spoon 8 x 2 tbsp of cookie dough onto the baking sheet and bake it for 10-15 minutes. The cooking time will depend on your oven. Cool the cookies for 5 minutes before eating them. Enjoy!
