Why Protein Cookies?


  • Protein-rich: They support muscle building and recovery after exercise.
  • Satisfying: Perfect as a snack to fend off cravings.
  • Healthy Ingredients: You decide what goes in. Bye-bye, artificial additives!
  • Versatile: Whether chocolate, nuts, or fruits – you can customize them to your taste.

These homemade Oatmeal Protein Cookies are made with bananas, oats, protein powder, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. They taste incredibly delicious and are a cross between banana bread and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, enriched with high-quality protein!

Ideal for after a workout, as an energy-rich snack in the office, or simply when you’re craving something sweet.

Ingredients

See recipe card for quantities.

  • Banana – Best to use ripe bananas as they are sweeter. It also works with very fresh and less ripe bananas, depending on what you have at home. Bananas contain fiber and help the cookies stick together without the need for eggs.
  • Protein Powder – Vanilla-flavored whey protein powder works best for this recipe. For vegan protein cookies, you can use vegan protein powder.
  • Oats – I recommend using quick oats. Rolled oats would work too.
  • Peanut Butter – Adds extra protein and a hint of peanut flavor. Substitute with any nut butter such as cashew butter or almond butter.
  • Chocolate Chips – For a chocolaty taste. I recommend bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Variations

  • No Chocolate: These cookies are also delicious without chocolate chips.
  • Berries: In the summer, you can add a handful of fresh blueberries or raspberries.
  • Dried Fruit: Add raisins or cranberries for a change.
  • Spices: Especially in winter, they’re delicious with seasonal spices like cinnamon, ginger, or gingerbread/pumpkin spice. Simply mix a pinch into the wet cookie dough.
  • Vegan: Use a plant-based protein powder.
  • Gluten-Free: Make sure to use gluten-free oats.

Storage & Freezing Instructions

Store those protein oatmeal cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. They keep fresh for 2 days.

Freezing: I recommend freezing leftover cookies, so you can enjoy them anytime you crave something sweet. You can freeze them in a freezer bag for a maximum of 3 months and let them thaw individually at room temperature.
