Protein Oatmeal Cookies

We know, we know... we've done protein cookies in the past, but were they covered in a delightful crunchy oats? Exactly!

Read on for the ingredients and method to this tasty treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 sachet BOXD Vegan Madagascan Vanilla powder
  • Banana: use ripe bananas if you have them. Will add sweetness and more flavour.
  • Peanut Butter: use organic natural peanut butter with no additives; just pesticide free peanuts and salt. However, technically any peanut butter will work.
  • Oats: You can use rolled oats or quick oats.
  • Choc Chips: use either semi-sweet, dark, or even sugar-free chocolate chips. Cacao nibs would also work but won’t add sweetness at all.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C, then line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, or use a silicone baking mat sprayed with cooking spray.
  2. Mash the bananas in a large bowl with a fork. You could also do this in a food processor/blender, but it’s not necessary.
  3. Add the protein powder, oats, and peanut butter to the bowl and mix well until thoroughly combined. If you’re using them, add chocolate chips (or any add-in) now too.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the baking tray using a measuring spoon/small scoop for even-sized cookies. The cookies don’t spread, so you can ‘shape’ them now. Use damp fingers to press down the top/shape them, as preferred.
  5. Bake the protein cookies. For smaller cookies, they’ll need about 12 minutes. For larger cookies, try 14 minutes.
  6. Allow the protein oatmeal cookies to cool for a few minutes before enjoying
