Homemade Oat Flour
To turn your rolled oats into oat flour all you do is simply add your rolled oats into either a food processor or blender and process or blend them until they look like flour. That’s it!
Mix all of those ingredients together with a hand mixer until smooth.
The goal with mixing this cookies & cream protein cheesecake cookies recipe is to make sure you mix until there’s no clumps left. Yes, you can do this without a hand mixer…it’ll just take a bit longer.
Take out a baking sheet, line it with some parchment paper, and shape your mix into balls. However many cookies & cream protein cheesecake cookies you want is completely up to you. Make a bunch of small cookies or a couple large ones, the choice is yours!
Is your mix sticking to your hands? Fix this by keeping your hands damp while you shape them.
Protein Cheesecake Cookies Topping
Crush up and evenly distribute 1 1/2 servings of mini cookies total onto the top of each cookie by pressing them into your balls while flattening them. You can make them as flat or as thick as you want. The only focus should be making sure that they’re all the same size so that they bake evenly.
Put them in the oven and bake them on 375F/190C for around 10-15 minutes or until the bottoms of them are golden brown (time will be dependent on how big or small you made them).
Store them in the fridge!
