packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups
powdered protein supplement
1 1/3 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
Just make sure that your protein powder is heat stable, as most aren't. If the protein powder isn't heat stable, the protein will break down & you won't be getting the full amount of added protein. Optimal Nutrition makes a heat stable protein called Any Whey. It is heat stable up to 450 degrees. I use it to make my own protein bars.
make sure the protein powder has no noticable taste. Otherwise this is a great cookie!
great cookie. made some changes. i used milk instead of water. used 3/4 cup peanut butter (crunchy)and added a cut of coconut. i only had strawberry protein so i used that. yummy!!
I was so excited to find a recipe that would use up that extra protein powder I had sitting around my house. I was wondering if the cookies would be any good, and they really really were! One note - I did use a chocolate flavored powder which seemed to blend well with the other ingredients. The cookies seem a little 'heavy' but they are soft and delicious! Also, my yield was much higher, and I made them into what I thought were decent-sized cookies. Thanks for a good and interesting recipe!
I loved this! I used milk as suggested and because of the comments about the consistency of the cookies, i.e. cake like, I pressed the dough into a 9 x 13 pan. The came out like brownies and were wonderful. I also used splenda brown sugar mix and regular spenda in place of the sugar. I used butter flavored Pam to coat the pan.
I used chocolate protein powder and a little extra peanut butter, and milk instead of water. I added rum-soaked raisins to the mix and made the cookies double-sized. A couple that were slightly undercooked were moist in the center, others were more cake-like. I recommend the moist ones, and next time I want to use vanilla protein powder and white chocolate chips!
Just made a batch but without chocolate chips. The cookies taste great. They're a little dry, - you need a glass of water by your side, but they're really good. I'm happy to have found a high protein recipe!
I used whole wheat flour and Splenda instead of white sugar and they were still tasty! I will definitely make these again and next time I'll follow another reviewer's tip and use milk instead of water.
