Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today is now known as the day that you can reach your goals while eating cookies! These Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies are not just delicious but are packed with diet friendly macros, only take a few minutes to prep, and are guaranteed to satisfy!

All you’ll for this one? A mixing bowl big enough for all of your ingredients, something to mix your ingredients with, and a baking sheet to bake your cookies on.

Add right into your bowl 2 extra large whole eggs, 1 medium banana, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 3 scoops of a vanilla protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 8 tablespoons of coconut flour, 1/3 cup of your choice sweetener, 1 cup of oat flour, 4 tablespoons of sugar free chocolate chips, and 1/4 cup of unsweetened milk substitute.

Make homemade oat flour by processing or blending 1 cup of rolled oats until they look like flour! Easy, right?

Flavor tip? Make these chocolate protein cookies by using a chocolate protein powder.

Mix all of those ingredients together until everything is incorporated. I like using a hand mixer to speed this step up but any mixing utensil should work with enough effort.

You’ll know it’s ready when your protein chocolate chip cookies mix thickens up and looks like cookie dough.

Take out your baking sheet and optionally line it for easy clean up or coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. I lined my sheet with some parchment paper.

Spoon your cookie dough mix onto your sheet until all of your mix is gone. I made 10 protein chocolate chip cookies today but make however many you want!

Put your cookies into the oven on 350F/176C for around 10-15 minutes or until they turn golden brown. Depending on how big or small you made them you may need to keep an eye on them as baking time can change.

Pro tip? Top them with more chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, or anything else you can think of before the oven.

    Made these for the first time and they’re absolutely delicious. Can’t wait to share with family and friends. Here’s a pic of the end result Thank you! 😀

    • Derek Howes on September 20, 2016 at 12:00 am

      These look awesome Kush! Well done!!!

  2. Anna on June 5, 2016 at 12:00 am

    They came out more of like a protein cake rather than a cookie but I still like how they taste. Do you have a protein carrot cookie recipe? Thank you!

  3. Jolene on November 6, 2015 at 12:00 am

    There’s nothing I love more than chocolate and protein. These look lush!!

  4. Lauren on September 10, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Great recipe! I’ve been struggling to find a protein cookie that tastes like a cookie and isn’t insanely dry. The cakey texture was a plus for that and I substituted almond flour for the coconut flour to try and keep as much moisture as possible.
    Do you have a gluten free bread recipe by chance?

    • Derek Howes on September 15, 2015 at 12:00 am

      Glad you liked it Lauren! I don’t have one up but I will eventually – give me a bit! 🙂

  5. Anthony Kim on August 8, 2015 at 12:00 am

    I would really appreciate it if you would make a lot more videos without using protein powder and the microwave because I’m pretty sure you know as well that microwaving food is insanely bad for you and a lot of the ingredients in many protein powders are also extremely bad for you. Thanks for the awesome videos and hope you keep it up.

    • Derek Howes on August 11, 2015 at 12:00 am

      Will do! Thanks for the support Anthony!

  6. Laura on June 26, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Loved this recipe! I substituted flax seed meal for the oats , and they were delicious!! I love your website and your recipes!!

  7. C on January 20, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Didn’t ground the oats and I used a sugar-stevia blend along with dark chocolate chips and they came out really good! Very soft and cakey as was mentioned before which isn’t a bad thing for me. I did use half the sweetener since I was worried about it being too sweet and it turned out to be not sweet enough. Either way I love this and I’m excited to cook up another batch!

  8. Mike T. on August 25, 2014 at 12:00 am

    I liked these cookies but they did come out cakey. If you don’t mind a cakey cookie I’d recommend them!

  9. Kandle on August 24, 2014 at 12:00 am

    I have made these twice. Both time they have come out really dry. Good but need a glass of milk to eat them!

  10. Neha on May 11, 2014 at 12:00 am

    These were really delicious, but more muffin-like in texture. I used chocolate whey and honey as the sweetener. I was surprised they were so sweet. I will definitely be making these again. Thank you!

    • Derek Howes on May 12, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Thank you too Neha! Glad you liked them

  11. Craig on April 17, 2014 at 12:00 am

    These were awesome!!! Everyone in my family loved them I brought them to the gym and all the trainers loved them!! Thank you

  12. Cindy on April 10, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Thank you Derek for this recipe. I’ll give it a try!!! Keep posting. Love watching all your vids. And your dog is so ADORABLE 🙂

  13. ana on April 6, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Hi, what can I substitute the coconut flour for without messing up the recipe too bad? Wheat flour?

  14. michael on April 6, 2014 at 12:00 am
