Healthy Protein Cookies along with the macronutrient and calorie breakdown for a single serving:
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any preferred milk)
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, protein powder, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
Add the almond butter, honey or maple syrup, almond milk, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined and form a thick, sticky dough.
If using dark chocolate chips, fold them into the dough until evenly distributed.
Scoop approximately 1.5 tablespoons of dough for each cookie onto the prepared baking sheet. Use your hands or the back of a spoon to slightly flatten and shape the cookies.
Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until they are golden brown around the edges.
Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
