My favorite Protein Powders

There are so many protein powders out there and I feel like I have tried them all. From experience, I have found that they will either be too “chalky” or lacking in flavor. Below is a list of my favorites that have the best taste along with great macros.

What do you need to make these No Bake Protein Cookies

  • Gluten Free Rolled Oats ( I love using Bob’s Red Mill)
  • Creamy All Natural Peanut Butter
  • Protein Powder of choice
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • Maple Syrup or Monk Fruit Syrup. (I love using Monk Fruit in this recipe. It tastes almost the same but takes the carbs and sugar count down).

In conclusion, if you are looking for a sweet treat that won’t leave you feeling guilty, be sure to give these a try. I love making a big batch and freezing for up to 3 months. I will simply take them out and allow to thaw for 10 minutes and enjoy.

A healthy cookie, really? Yes, my No Bake Chocolate Protein Cookies are simply delicious. Each one of these cookies has 6 grams of protein and is the perfect treat for your sweet tooth. Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Macro friendly. 


  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, honey or Monk Fruit Syrup*(See notes)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 tsp sea salt


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the rolled oats and protein powder. Stir together and give it a mix. 
  2. In a small sauce pan combine the almond milk, peanut butter, syrup, vanilla extract, salt and cocoa powder. Place on stove top over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. 
  3. Once everything is completely dissolved and combined, pour this mixture over the oats and protein powder. 
  4. Mix together with a spoon until combined. 
  5. Place the batter in the fridge for 10 minutes to set. This step is a must to get the perfect size cookies.
  6. Spoon a dollop of chilled batter onto a parchment paper  lined cookie sheet. Form the cookie into desired shape and size. 
  7. Before serving, I suggest adding the pan to the freezer for 10 minutes or so. This will allow them to keep their shape and not fall apart.  
  8. Store any leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge. 


  • Store in the fridge in an air tight container. 
  • These will also freeze up to 3 months if stored in an air tight container. Simply thaw for 10 minutes before serving.
