Peanut Butter Protein Cookies Recipe

high protein cookie ingredients

To make one serving of cookies, you’ll need peanut butter, protein powder, your favorite sweetener, salt, baking soda, water, and pure vanilla extract.

Almond butter, cashew butter, low-carb macadamia nut butter, or sunflower butter (for nut-free protein cookies) can all be substituted for peanut butter.

I recommend sugar-free protein powders because they don’t have the artificial aftertaste that many flavored protein powders have.

The cookies in the photo are plant based pea protein powder.

If you have a favorite protein powder flavor, feel free to use it here and adjust for additional sweetener as needed.

Homemade protein cookies can be egg-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, vegan, keto-friendly, and gluten-free.

If you’re looking for cookies without protein powder, try these Keto Peanut Butter Cookies.

5 cookie flavor ideas

Oatmeal raisins: Add 1 tablespoon of raisins and 4 teaspoons of cinnamon to the batter.

Nutella cookies: Replace peanut butter with homemade Nutella or chocolate hazelnut spread. Add a handful of finely chopped hazelnuts and mix.

Birthday Cake Protein Cookies: Use cake batter protein powder and cashew butter, regular butter, or macadamia nut butter. I also added rainbow chips on top.

White chocolate: Add white chocolate chips to dry ingredients, or tuck a few into unbaked cookies before placing them in the oven. You can also add macadamia nuts.

Snickerdoodle Protein Cookies: Use almond butter or cashew butter instead of peanut butter. Add 4 teaspoons of powdered cinnamon along with the dry ingredients, or roll a ball of cookie dough with cinnamon sugar.

How to make one serving protein cookies

Preheat your oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

If the peanut butter is not yet softened, remove it from the refrigerator and let it sit for a few hours, or warm it gently until it can be easily stirred.

Stir protein powder, baking soda, salt, and optional granular sweetener in a cereal bowl. If you want to add chocolate chips, you can mix them in now.

Mix peanut butter, vanilla extract, water, and optional liquid sweetener to form protein cookie dough.

Form into a large ball, or if you want 2 protein cookies, make 2 small balls.

If you want flat cookies, use your hands or a fork to press the balls into the cookie shape as they won’t spread in the oven.

Place the uncooked cookies on the baking sheet and bake on the center rack of the oven for 7 minutes.

Let the cookie sheet cool on the counter before removing the cookies. It hardens quite a bit when it cools down.

Some readers have had success using the microwave, but I haven’t personally tried it with this recipe.
