  • 2 cups Old-Fashioned oats (not quick cooking)
  • 30 grams protein powder approx 1/4 cup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Use a food processor to finely grind one cup of the oats into a flour.
  • Combine ground and whole oats, protein powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream softened butter and sugar.
  • Add egg and vanilla to the mixing bowl, mix until combined.
  • Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the mixing bowl.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  • Scoop cookies into balls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  • Slightly pat the cookies down with your hand, as they don't spread too much on their own.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the bottoms are just lightly starting to brown.


The amount of protein in the cookies will depend on the amount of protein in your protein powder.
