We showed you how easy it is to make a protein-rich oatmeal breakfast with whey powder, now, you can turn that goodness into a super simple cookie recipe!
Cookies have a bad rap (poor Cookie Monster). But they don’t have to be the sugar-laden Oreos of your youth. You can whip up these super simple cookies with just three healthy ingredients you probably have in your kitchen right now: bananas, oats, and organic whey protein.
When possible, please make sure all of your ingredients are organic. Our mustHave whey protein powder is organic and made in small batches so we can ensure quality and flavor. If you don’t have access to organic whey protein, another organic protein powder will suffice, such as hemp or rice.
Makes 6 servings
2 medium-ripe bananas
1 cup rolled oats
1 large scoop of organic whey protein (about 1 tablespoon)
Optional: You can add in dried fruits, nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, even chocolate chips if you like to have a more textured cookie. Or if you like a bit more intense flavor, add ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract, cinnamon powder, ginger, or nutmeg.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and grease a cookie sheet.
Mash the peeled bananas in a bowl using a fork or potato masher. Add in the protein powder and mix well. If the bananas are a bit on the under ripe side, add in a few drops of water or milk. The consistency should be like an applesauce. Next, mix in the oats and any additional toppings you’re adding.
Using a spoon, drop the dough onto the cookie sheet and press down lightly to flatten. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cookies appear golden brown in color. Let cool for ten minutes before serving.
