Protein is a must for growth and development, and whether you’re trying to get fit, stay in shape, train for something big, or just encourage healthy eating in your house, protein cookies are a great choice, and are a healthy alternative to high calorie cookies, just as sugar free cookies or even protein bars are. Here are a few recipes you may want to try.
Caroline Bakker’s Protein Cookie
To get started, you’ll need two and a half tablespoons of peanut butter, half of a banana, a teaspoon of vanilla, ½ teaspoon of baking powder, two cups of protein powder, two and a half cups of oat flour, a cup of raisins, two tablespoons of cocoa, and four egg whites.
Using a hand mixer, combine all ingredients. You want the dough to be thick enough to roll into balls. Roll into small balls, then flatten with your hand. Bake at 200 degrees for 20 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.

Heat the butter in a microwaveable bowl until it melts. Stir the whey powder and the Splenda in. Add some water until the mixture can be rolled into a ball. Put it in the microwaveable bowl, and cook on high for thirty seconds. Let it cool.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together in their own bowls. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ones. Stir completely until they’re well combined. Add in the chocolate chips. Roll the cookies into bowls. Place on a cookies sheet that is lined with foil or parchment paper. Bake the cookies for eight minutes. They should be firmly set and light colored on top. Remove to a baking sheet to cool completely.
