The Best Vegan Protein Cookies
This vegan protein cookie recipe will make you many, many friends. Kids even love these cookies. (That is when you know that they are good.) Loaded with real food protein, protein cookies are a creative way to meet your nutrition goals. Plus, with no flour and no sugar, you can enjoy them guilt-free!
I recommend using salted peanut butter. If you only have unsalted peanut butter, add a pinch of salt. Also, if you have the time, chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. It makes a big difference.
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vegan 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 plant-based protein cookie recipe.
-1 cup salted peanut butter
-1 cup drink wholesome vegan vanilla protein powder

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, protein powder, bananas, baking soda, and chocolate chips.
