Soft and chewy healthy cookies rich in protein and healthy fats to curb your cravings and keep you feeling satisfied. These chocolate chip protein cookies are the perfect snack for in between meals, when you are craving something sweet or even post workout. Satisfy your sweet cravings or enjoy with a cuppa for a feel good healthy snack. 

Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

Key Ingredients:

To make these healthy chocolate chip protein cookies I’ve used a combination of protein and healthy fats. These macronutrients help to keep your blood sugar levels stable, energy balanced and keep you satisfied in between meals without cravings. 

In this recipe you will find sources of protein from almond butter, chia seeds and protein powder. 

The chia seeds also provide a source of omegas, magnesium, calcium and fibre. ???????? I used chia seeds from the Botanika Basics range (gluten free, quality pantry staples for healthy recipes). 

The recipe calls for a plant based liquid of choice such as almond milk, coconut milk or coconut water. To add a hint of natural sweetness and benefits of hydration through naturally occurring electrolytes, I’ve used coconut water. To make your own coconut water you can mix preservative free coconut water powder with water. Coconut water powder is a great pantry staple to keep coconut water on hand.

Which protein powder to use?

Always choose a good quality protein powder, without additives, artificial flavours, artificial colours or artificial sweeteners. 

I use a plant based protein powder that is both gluten free and vegan friendly by Botanika Blends. Their range of plant based protein powder includes a variety of flavours to diversify your cooking, baking and protein smoothies. The Botanika Blends protein is free from nasties, gluten free (tested and verified), has no artificial sweeteners and has a smooth texture ideal for smoothies and recipes like these protein cookies.

  • Mix through chocolate chips. Heat oven to 180°C. 
  • Heat oven to 180°C. Roll tablespoon portions of the cookie dough into shape and place onto a lined baking tray. Place in fridge for 15 minutes (this will help the cookies to hold their shape and produce a light, soft and chewy centre). 
  • Bake cookies in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool. 
  • Best enjoyed on the day of baking or store in refrigerator. 


Recipe notes: 
*Use a good quality protein powder without additives or artificial sweeteners. Most flavours will work in this recipe. A vanilla or chocolate protein would be ideal. I use this plant based protein powder in the ‘vanilla cake batter’ flavour. 
*To make a chia egg, combine 1 tbsp chia seed with 3 tbsp water and allow to sit for 5 minutes for chia seeds to swell. 
  • In this recipe I used coconut water made from coconut water powder and water.
