Power Protein Cookies

These cookies are not your typical afternoon snack cookies. These cookies pack a serious (protein and calorie) punch.

I whipped up a big batch of these cookies for Dave to take with him to Icefall Lodge.

They can be made using your favorite protein powder. The original recipe used whey protein, I used chocolate flavoured soy protein.

Adapted from createlive, makes 3 dozen cookies


3/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons flax seeds
2 tablespoons hemp hearts, optional
2 tablespoons chia seeds, optional
1/4 cup diced walnuts
2 scoops protein powder


Preheat the oven to 375. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpat.

Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on low speed until combined. Scoop onto cookie sheet using a cookie scoop and flatten with a fork.

Bake for 14 to 18 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to brown.
