Double Chocolate Protein Cookies

Double Chocolate Protein Cookies

Double Chocolate Protein Cookies. Vegan, gluten free, and dairy free cookies that are high in protein and low in sugar!

Protein cookies have become extremely trendy in stores over the past year and I am hopping on the bandwagon with this homemade alternative!

These Double Chocolate Protein Cookies have a nice rich chocolate flavor, big and creamy chocolate chunks, and come in at just 140 calories each! They are easily made by putting all your ingredients in a blender (yes, your read that right, blender cookies) which makes for fast preparation and easy clean up.

Also, these only take like 7 minutes to bake so they are perfect for when you are HANGRY and just neeeed something chocolate.

These cookies are tasty straight up room temp but are also great reheated for a few seconds in the microwave….melts chocolate chunks…soft, gooey dough…ooh la la! And if you are feeling real crazy, douse them in some nut butter and thank me later! 😉

So what are you waiting for?? Get your oven preheated and get some Double Chocolate Protein Cookies on your plate!

  2. Place oats, cocoa powder, protein powder, liquid sweetener of choice, coconut oil, almond milk, and baking powder in a blender.
  3. Blend until mostly smooth, some small pieces of oats should still be visible.
  4. Transfer dough to a large bowl. Fold in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.

Recipe Notes

*Recipe scripted for whey protein, if you use a vegan alternative you will likely need to add extra liquid (almond milk, oil, liquid sweetener or a little bit of each until mixture reaches a dough consistency)

**I used honey, but agave nectar or date syrup also work.

    Somewhat confused. Your instructions list honey, but your ingredient list does not. Also, your instructions say to roll into 12 even balls, but nutritional facts suggest a recipe makes 6 cookies.

      Brandi, thanks for pointing that out! The honey refers to the liquid sweetener in the ingredient list, but I realize that’s not clear at all so I edited the wording. For the nutrition facts, I had plugged the recipe into my nutrition calculator using a 1/2 batch of 6 cookies I had made and forgot to adjust the total up for the final blog posting. I changed that too. Thanks again for pointing that out!!

    Hi there! I attempted to make these and they didn’t turn out at all!! The dough was super dry and I had to add two eggs to get it to bind. I’m pretty sure the problem was that I used a vegan protein powder, not whey! Might want to add that to your notes!
