Who doesn’t love a good cookie? Especially a healthy one that’s high in protein. My new Healthy No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies are LIFE. They are so darn delicious and can be whipped up in no time at all. Additionally, these No Bake Protein Cookies are Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Macro Friendly.
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.
- Perfect Keto Chocolate and Vanilla Whey. If you are interested in purchasing, be sure to use “HEALTHYLITTLEPEACH” at checkout for 15% off. This protein tastes just like a milkshake.
- Primal Kitchen Fuel: Clean Protein: Chocolate Coconut
- Level-1 Protein Powders: My favorite flavors are German Chocolate Cake, Vanilla Ice Cream, Mint Ice Cream Sandwich, Milk Chocolate, Blueberry Muffin.
- Dymatize ISO100 Protein Powder: My favorite flavors are Chocolate, Vanilla, and Fudge Brownie
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).
- Parchment Paper/Cookie Sheet
- Mixing Bowl/Sauce Pan
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.Print

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.
- Total Time: 15 minutes

Hi there! can I do this without any syrup? could I add another scoop to substitute?
I haven’t done it that way! You are more than welcome to try it that way, but I always recommend following the recipe as written to get the best results.
So good! Thanks for a healthier version of my favorite cookie!
Thank you! Glad it was a hit
Can I use Coach’s Oats (cracked n toasted oats) instead of rolled oats?
I have not used that so I can’t say for sure. You can certainly giv e it a try and report back.
