Description

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. 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.
