I finally got time to post this whey protein cookie recipe instead of teasing everyone with iPhone photos. Super quick and easy protein powder cookie recipe made with America’s all times favourite peanut butter and chocolate chips.

This recipe makes great pre- and post-workout snack. It is also a great playground and shopping trip snack. Only 88 calories each, 2 WW points, super moist, have distinct peanut butter taste, naturally sweet cookies. And so easy plus great for freezing.

Sorry, the photo doesn’t do these whey protein cookies justice.

I literally made 3 batches of these protein cookies on Friday. Me and kids ate the first batch right away.

Whey Protein Cookie Recipe

Whey Protein Cookie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 scoops (60g) whey protein powder, unflavoured & unsweetened
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter, unsalted & softened
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips, mini

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients together adding chocolate chips the last. The batter consistency depends on how ripe are your bananas. It's OK if it's runny.
  3. Spoon mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on the cooling rack.
  4. Store in the fridge for up to a couple of weeks or freeze in an air tight container for up to a month. The best way to defrost them is in a microwave. That way the moisture and softness is restored.

    My batter turned out so thick that I had to roll it into a log and slice. What could be added to thin it a bit?

      How ripe were your bananas and how big are your protein scoops? Bananas should be ripe and 1 scoop of whey protein powder usually is 30 g. You could use almond milk to fix your dough. The batter should be on a runny side but not like for pancakes. I suspect you will have very high protein cookies as it probably has to do with the amount of protein powder.:)

    I love this recipe, I changed the peanut butter to PB2 and added sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and almonds to give some crunch. Thanks for the recipe

    These sound delicious but unfortunately I HATE bananas! Could I substitute them for anything? Also I was thinking adding flaxseeds to the mix?

      You can definitely add flax seeds but unfortunately bananas is what makes these cookies.

    Hi. I plan to use sweetend and flavored protein powder with salted peanut butter. That is what I have. Your thoughts?

    • Olena (iFOODreal)

      It’s perfectly fine in terms of taste and baking. Just the cookies will be sweeter and nutritional info will change. 🙂

    Hi there!
    Would the recipe still work if I used unflavoured hemp protein powder?
    Thanks!

    • Olena (iFOODreal)

      Probably but the texture and taste would change. I haven’t tried. These turn out best with whey protein.

    How long will these cookies stay good if not refrigerated? My husband was wondering if they could be shipped.

    Reply
    • Olena (iFOODreal)

      Hi Laura. I would say in an airtight container, for up to a week, 10 days…

    Hi I have read somewhere that whey protein gets destroyed on heating and I just wanted to check if the protein value is accurate and also if 6gm is per cookie or for the entire batch of cookies

    We just made them and I absolutely loved these cookies! Great recipe. Just a question, as I might not always have protein powder on me, is there anything that could substitute for it?

    Reply
    • Olena

      Glad you liked the cookies. To answer your question, you probably could replace protein powder with almond flour (ground almonds) or hemp hearts but cookies won’t come out the same. Still good but different texture.

    I have Natural Source Vegetarian Protein Unflavoured from President’s Choice. It tastes like yeast to me when mixed with water as directed. I am looking for an alternate use. Do you think this could be substituted for the whey protein powder? Thanks!

    These cookies are amazing!!!! I used PC Soy Isolate Protein Powder (unflavoured) as my Whey Protein is chocolate flavoured and these taste absolutely fantastic. Thanks so much for this and all of your amazing recipes.

    Reply
    • Olena

      Really, they worked with soy protein? I tried to follow the recipe with plant-based protein powder and it didn’t work. I ended up adding way more liquid. But I know with whey they are amazing. Glad you liked them!

    Hi Olena, what a wonderful website you have 🙂 I dont know how you got it to be low calorie??? when i put the ingredients into my fitness pal the calories tell me its about 140 calories per biscuit 🙁

      Hi Stefanie. Thank you! You know, sometimes people enter wrong nutritional info for some ingredients so that could be why. I always check labels of my ingredients and other people’s already entered.

      Hey Stefanie, PB2 is a great way to cut calories from the cookies since peanut butter is a large contributor. I followed the recipe exactly with Isopure Vanilla protein powder and two tablespoons of PB2 (mixed with water per instructions) and mine were less than 80 calories per cookie.

      Reply

    Awesome recipe! I loved it mostly because how quick it is. I used vanilla isopure protein and PB2 and they turned out great. I will likely do a little less protein powder next time and a slightly shorter cooking time because they were just a touch dry. I also want to add some shredded coconut or maybe some nuts next time 🙂

    I used vanilla whey and they came out quite dry. Do you think I could add more banana or peanut butter to make it more moist?

    Hey there! When you scooped the batter onto the baking sheet, did you press/flatten them or leave them as is? Or should the batter be loose enough that they spread on their own when spooned? Just want to make sure I get the consistency correct before i bake! 🙂

    Has anyone tried doubling or tripling the recipe and freezing? Wondering so I can plan ahead and have on hand during the busyness of work life. And do you have a recipe for high protein granola bars?

    I just came across your recipe. I’m looking forward to trying it. My thought is to use Coach’s Oats, a Costco favorite of ours. Thanks for the recipe! Ttyl 🙂 Walter

      Hi Walter. Yes, you can use Coach’s oats. Cookie’s texture might be more coarse but it’s OK. Enjoy!

    I made these cookies today and they tasted so good! However, I was wondering if you could recommend a way to make the cookies slightly less dense and softer in the middle. We made 9 cookies and they were relatively thick so this could be why they were so dense. Thank you!

    Reply
    • Olena

      I don’t think it’s possible just because of oats and no white flour with rising agents etc. I mean these are cookies but definitely without many qualities of real cookies. Make them smaller and maybe try adding some baking soda. 🙂

  25. Sara Doudar

    How would you recommend changing the recipe around for more protein? Like if I double the protein would I just lessen the oats?
