Hey there!

I'm Tina

Guys, you need to make these cookies, and you need to make them now. They are SO easy, and they’re made with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. They call for protein powder, but almost any kind will work.

They’re perfect for when you really want a treat but you also don’t want to wreck your diet with something truly decadent. But they’re still delicious, so you still feel like you’re indulging, despite them having no sugar added and being high in protein.

  1. These look super yummy! I love that these have protein in them and banana as the sweetener. Question – the recipe is Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies but there are no chocolate chips listed as an ingredient even though they are shown in the picture? Are the chocolate chips included in the macros or should I adjust if adding them? Thanks!!

  2. What would I need to add if I left out the protein? This recipe looks great – and I do have everything 🙂 except the protein. Ha!

    1. Collagen might work. Maybe more oats? I’m not quite sure since I’ve only made them with the protein powder, but it could be a fun experiment! 🙂

  3. Damn, I just ran out of protein powder while i do have the rest of the ingredients. Well, they are just going to have to wait untill the new one is delivered. We usually have a chocolate flavoured one at home and I’m sure it would work just as well as vanilla.

  4. Ok — I have to try this.

    I’m always looking for a great but healthy treat recipe and have long settled on protein shakes as a “treat” that doesn’t feel like a treat… if that makes sense.

    I’m going to have to give these a whirl — I’m wondering if 6 is enough for one batch…

  5. Made these last night with Trader Joe’s pea protein powder. I had never tried it so I was taking a gamble. I added 1/4 cup PBFIT and a splash of milk to help mix them together. SOOO GOOD. The perfect amount of sweetness, the protein is just an added bonus.

    Another go to recipe when I need to use up my naners. Thank you!

  6. Just made these cookies this morning – they are absolutely fantastic! I substituted coconut oil for butter and it worked out great. I will definitely be making these again!

  7. These were so good!!!!!! My boyfriend went crazy!

    Also they remind me of your Choc chip banana bread cookies – another CNC favorite!! They are such a standby but i love these for being a bit more nutritious!

  8. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I made the cookies and they are delicious! Are the macros for one cookie?
