Rated 15 Times

Ingredients You'll Need

30g Vanilla or Unflavoured Protein Powder
2 tbsp Peanut Butter or Nut Butter of Choice
30g Greek Yogurt
10g Natural Honey
1 tsp Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
15g Mini Chocolate Chips
Pinch of Sea Salt

Let's Get Started!

  • Your going to be surprised by how easy and yummy this No Bake Protein Cookie Dough recipe really is. No flour, eggs or baking needed. We’ve made this recipe in a way that’s quick, doesn’t create a big mess in the kitchen, lower in fat and sugar compared to store bought cookie dough while tasting great. This makes a perfect post workout treat that you can enjoy when you really crave something for that sweet tooth! Use your favourite Vanilla flavour protein powder, even unflavoured will do perfectly fine.
  • Heat up the preferred Nut Butter of your choice, along with the Honey and Brown Sugar in a glass bowl in a microwave for around 30 seconds. We just want to heat it enough so that it melts and mixes up nicely for a more even batter. If you use Peanut Butter, be sure to go for the Smooth version and not Crunchy! Let this mixture cool down for a few minutes before going onto the next step.
  • Okay now we’re ready to mix in the Protein powder into our melted mixture. Once that’s not clumpy, let’s add in our Greek Yogurt, Vanilla Extract and throw in a pinch of Sea Salt. This will really help to bring out the flavour in this recipe. Mix it all up until it forms the desired Cookie Dough like consistency. If it’s too dry and needs a little more moisture in there, simply add 15ml of Water/Milk or Almond Milk into it while mixing it up properly until it reaches the consistency your happy with. Hold tight, don’t start eating it all up just yet.
  • For the final step, let’s add in our Mini Chocolate Chips and start to gently fold these into our tasty Cookie Dough batter. Did you know it takes around 3 mini Chocolate Chips to make the calories of 1 normal sized one? Using the mini ones ensures that you get that chocolatey taste in each and every bite. We recommend keeping this in the Fridge for around 30 to 45 minutes before serving. This will take your Protein Cookie Dough to the next level. Hope you enjoy!

  • Can You Just Add Water To Protein Cookie Dough?

    If your batter looks too dry, you can just add in a small amount of water into the Cookie Dough while mixing it in. Just 10-15ml at a time and mix in should do the trick. You can even add Milk or Unsweetened Almond Milk into it too.

  • How Long Can These Be Stored In The Fridge For?

    Your yummy Cookie Dough is best eaten fresh. However they can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days without any issue. Just be sure to store them in an airtight container.

  • Do Protein Cookies Build Muscle?

    Well, not by themselves unfortunately. Each serving is packed with 35 to 40 grams of power packed protein though. So if used with a good workout routine, this can definitely help you to gain muscle mass if used properly. This sure makes one tasty post workout treat that’s for sure!

  • Is This Cookie Dough Gluten Free?

    Yes, absolutely! For the sake of simplicity and speed we’ve designed this recipe to be easy for everyone. Most store bought Cookie Dough will usually contain Gluten but this recipe is Gluten Free. Just be sure to double check any of the processed ingredients you use to make this to be sure they don’t contain any Gluten if you have any allergies with it.

  • Is This Recipe Vegan Friendly?

    Almost! The only sources of Dairy in here are the Greek Yoghurt and Chocolate Chips. Simply use a plant based Yoghurt and use some Chocolate Chips that don’t contain any dairy if you want to keep this a 100% plant based and you’ll be good to go!
