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


  • 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


  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.

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

  2. 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!

    1. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Walter

  4. 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?

  5. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. 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?

  7. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Hi Olena, what a wonderful website you have ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ™

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

  9. Just made these i used pumpkin spice protein powder added a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice 2 tablespoons of coconuts and I grounded some walnuts and sprinkle them on top it was delicious i would share the photo but it wont let me

  10. Great recipe, I added a few other ingredients, almond flakes, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, I also added some mini marshmallows my clients love them. thank you .

  11. I made these for my boyfriend who’s into working out and having his daily dose of protein, and he absolutely loved these cookies! He was super shocked when i told him there was 6g of protein in EACH cookie. thanks so much for the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. 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.

    1. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. Hi just looking for a good protein cookie for my teenage son who wants to get in shape.He has a severe peanut butter/nut allergie and all the reciepies call for peanut butter any ideas.Thanks

  15. 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?

    1. 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.

  16. 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

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

    1. It’s perfectly fine in terms of taste and baking. Just the cookies will be sweeter and nutritional info will change. ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  19. 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

  20. Hi Olena ! I have so much weight to lose & am so happy to have found your blog.
    I love your recipes and your right, dieting & no carbs is not the answer. I also have two kids, I want to lose the weight to be around for them, I also want to teach them how to eat healthy. Thank you, Ellen

  21. 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?

    1. 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.:)
