Weightlifter's Protein Cookies

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

This are the cookies I make for my weightlifting husband. They are very low in fat and full of protein - but although they are tasty enough you wouldn't really want to eat them for fun, they are more like protein bars in a cookie format.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Use about tablespoon of mixture per cookie, pat down.
  3. Bake for about 10 minutes in 200 C/400 F oven.

What a great idea. Very easy to follow. Thank you, this is better than buying protein bars all the time. Five stars

These cookies are great for someone who is trying to up their protein intake. I made them last week and stored them in an airtight container for the BF. It was a perfect cookie for him to snack on, since he's not much for sweets--but still convinceable enough to replace some of his protein shakes with. It was definitely a runny batter, but that was alright. They firmed up a little and became thin and chewy in the oven. I wouldn't recommend these for anyone who is not looking for a carb and protein boost--but for those who are, or need a quick fix after the gyn, these are very handy to have around. Thanks Kolibri!

Absolute winner! Perfect for after training! They're not the sweetest tasting cookies, but when you're on a restricted diet, just biting into one of these cookies feels sinful they're so good. Thanks for the recipe :) p.s if mixture is too liquidy either don't add so much water or let it rest for a bit so the oats soak up some of the mixture
