  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 scoop Vanilla 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
  • 1/3 tsp sea salt


  • In a medium bowl, combine the rolled oats and protein powder. Stir together and give it a mix.
  • In a small sauce pan combine the almond milk, peanut butter, syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Place on stove top over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Once everything is completely dissolved and combined, pour this mixture over the oats and protein powder.
  • Mix together with a spoon until combined.
  • Place the batter in the fridge for 10 minutes to set. This step is a must to get the perfect size cookies.
  • Spoon a dollop of chilled batter onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Form the cookie into desired shape and size.
  • 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.
  • Store any leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge.


  • Monk Fruit Syrup will work but it will not stick as well as maple syrup.
  • These will also freeze up to 3 months if stored in an air tight container. Simply thaw for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Store in an air tight container in the fridge. I prefer storing mine in the freezer and thaw when ready to eat. I find that they keep better and hold their shape better in the freezer.
