One of my favorite cookies to make! This Protein Pumpkin Cookies recipe tastes like a pumpkin pie in cookie form all while being unbelievably healthy!

Here is the recipe:

  • 2 Cups (160g) Rolled Oats
  • 2 1/2 Scoops (75g) Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 2 Teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 Cups (366g) Pure Pumpkin
  • 2 Extra Large Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup (122g) Unsweetened Apple Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons (63g) Honey

  • Carbs: 213g
  • Fiber: 37g
  • Sugar: 82g
  • Protein: 105g

Combine all of your ingredients into a food processor, blender, or bowl. Process/blend everything together (if you’re using a bowl and hand mixer/whisk make sure you process/blend your Rolled Oats until they look like flour first). Take out a baking sheet and coat it with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon your batter onto the baking sheet making your cookies however big you want them and then top them if you’re using a topping. Bake on 350°F/176°C for 10:00-15:00. Enjoy!


  • Before baking top your cookies with some chocolate or white chocolate chips, nuts, cranberries, a broken up Cinnamon Roll Quest bar, etc!
