Mini Protein Cookies

I love these cookies so much, especially during a build phase of training where intensity is increasing and I really need to be on top of protein. These cookies are so easy to snack on (and each mini cookie contains 2-3 grams of protein!). My favorite flavors are chocolate chip and oat coconut. For a more hearty version, see my Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe here.

Total time: 30 min. Makes about 40 mini cookies (my favorite, ~12 grams each) or 12 large cookies.

Materials: Mixing bowl; measuring vessels; cookie or toaster tray. Missing materials or ingredients? Look here.

Ingredients (Substitutions):

  • ½ stick (57g) butter, softened
  • 4 tbsp (64g) any nut butter
  • ⅛ cup (27g) brown sugar
  • ⅝ cup (125g) granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt (omit if your protein powder is saltier)
  • 64 grams protein powder
  • 90 grams (~1 cup) oat flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • Chopped chocolate (I like dark chocolate) and/or mini chocolate chips and/or oat and coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together the ½ stick butter, 4 tbsp nut butter, and ¾ cup total sugars to a smooth paste. Mix in the egg, ½ tsp vanilla, and optional ¼ tsp salt.
  3. Mix in the 64 grams protein powder, followed by the 90 grams oat flour and ¼ tsp baking soda.
  4. Add in chocolate, oats, and/or coconut as desired.
  5. Roll into balls and score the tops by pressing in criss-cross marks with a fork (video here!). Bake at 350˚F for ~20 min. I like to bake them until slightly browned, which makes for a nice crunch! If you want them softer, you can bake them a little shorter and it’s okay if they aren’t browned.
