Flourless Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies are so yummy and you can’t even taste the protein powder! They are moist, chewy, and chocolatey, all of my favorites when looking for the perfect cookie.
I know, sweets aren’t supposed to be healthy, but what most people don’t know is when you eliminate processed ingredients and refined sugars, they start to become guilt-free. Not to mention if you are looking to up your protein intake, by adding collagen protein (I used this one!), you get all of the nutrients without a weird taste!
While I recommend cooking these protein cookies for 12 minutes so they are soft and chewy, you can always cook them a little longer if you like crispy cookies. Just be sure to keep a close eye on them so the bottoms do not burn!
Don’t worry! This isn’t the only healthy protein dessert I have! You have to try my High Protein and gluten-free Peanut Butter Blossoms, along with my version of peanut butter protein cookies that are flourless as well!
What is Collagen Protein?
Collagen protein powder is a supplement that contains a high amount of amino acids that benefits our bodies in many ways, including our skin, hair, nails, and bone health. We have natural collagen in our bodies already, but it decreases over time. Learn more about collagen protein and its benefits.
What Ingredients Do You Need to Make Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies?
Collagen Protein – Here’s my favorite brand! See the link above to learn more about collagen and Whey
Natural Peanut Butter – There should literally be only two ingredients on the label if it is really natural – salt and peanut butter. My favorite brand is from Trader Joes! Be sure to watch my most recent grocery haul!
Coconut Palm Sugar – This is the same as coconut sugar, it’s a natural sugar found in, you guessed it coconut palm sap. Fun fact, palm sugar is different! That comes from a different palm tree.
Mini Chocolate Chips – Check out my store for my favorite brand.
Other ingredients: Egg, egg whites, ground flax.
Don’t forget you will need a bowl, spatula, measuring cups and spoons, along with a baking sheet and mixer!
How Do I Know When My Protein Cookies Are Done?
Most people make the mistake of waiting on the tops to get brown, then by the time that happens the bottoms are burnt. So here’s the trick to get a perfect cookie every time.
Watch for the edges to start turning brown. You will think that they aren’t done because the tops will still look a little undercook. Cookies continue cooking as they sit waiting on you to eat them.
So by the time they have cooled, you will have the perfect, chewy chocolate chip protein cookie!
Tips For Storing
Make sure your cookies have cooled completely before putting them in a container or Ziploc bag. This makes sure there’s no extra moisture.
You can store them up to a week, but don’t worry because they won’t be around that long!
I can’t wait to see what you think! So here’s what to do. After you make them, tag me on Instagram and let me know what you think!
