Disclaimer: I am promoting Desiger Whey Sustained Energy protein powder as part of a Fitfluential campaign this month.
Well hello there! I ventured into my kitchen on Monday night after what has felt like forever and this is what I dreamed up! This bars are a riff on the classic no bake cookies and some bars that I noticed on Pinterest. These No Bake Chocolate Protein Cookies are delicious choclately goodness that is completely guilt-free and packs a punch of protein!
No Bake Chocolate Protein Cookies
1 cup nut or seed butter (I used up the last of the sunflower seed butter I had)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup whole rolled oats
2 scoops Designer Whey Sustained Energy Chocolate Protein Powder
1 cup shredded coconut
Dash of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Melt butter, honey, coconut oil and cocoa powder until smooth and combined. (Watch it closely so it doesn’t burn.) Stir in rolled oats, protein powder, coconut, salt, and vanilla until thoroughly combined. Drop cookies onto wax paper. Allow to cool in refrigerator and enjoy!
Hope you like these cookies! If you’re like me it always seems like a struggle to get protein between meals (then I get extra hungry and grumpy!). These cookies are an easy and yummy way to get some protein into your snack or dessert.
I really like adding protein powder to baked goods to add some extra protein without changing the consitency or quality of the product! The Designer Whey Sustained Energy worked great in these cookies and the special blend will keep you energized throughout your daily activities. I especially like to add it to pancakes or muffins or bars–then they are less of a treat and more of a healthy breakfast or snack! My tip for adding protein powder is to simply reduce the amount of flour or other dry ingredient by the amount of protein powder you are adding in.
Have you got in the kitchen lately?
Do you use protein powder in baking or cooking?
