The best homemade protein cookie recipe is here! These Protein Peanut Butter Cookies are easy to make with just a few simple ingredients, delicious, moist, filling, and one of my favorite ways to beat my unhealthy cookie cravings.
Start this recipe by taking out a mixing bowls for your wet, a mixing bowl for your dry ingredients, and something to bake your protein cookies on.
Add into the bowl for your wet ingredients 2 large whole eggs, 1 large egg white, 10-15 drops of some optional liquid sweetener, and 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce.
Mix those wet ingredients together.
Add into the bowl for your dry ingredients 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats, 2 scoops of a natural or vanilla flavored protein powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1 1/4 cups of your choice sweetener.
Mix those dry ingredients together.
If you’re using a natural flavored protein powder you may want to add in a little bit of vanilla extract.
Continue by melting 18 tablespoons of peanut butter on either the stovetop or in the microwave. I’m using the microwave today which usually takes around :45 seconds.
Add your melted peanut butter into your wet mix then slowly mix your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients. I like using a hand mixer to do this but a whisk works great too with some effort!
Baked Protein Cookies
Take out a baking sheet, line it with some foil or parchment paper, and shape your protein peanut butter cookies onto it.
If you keep you hands damp as you shape your cookies your batter won’t stick to them.
Whatever size protein cookes you want is completely up to you. Keep in mind that your baking time may change depending on how small or big you make them.
Optionally add some chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, or anything else you want to the top of them before the oven.
Press your cookie mix down with a fork (crisscross) and bake them on 350F/176C for around 8-10 minutes.
