A huge bowl of healthy cookies is what you need for the weekend or birthday party. It contains not so many calories and much protein, so this protein vegan dough won’t spoil your shapes. Simple raw cookie dough is made of refined sugar, white flour that contain gluten, and raw eggs which are not safe.

Cookie Dough

Recipe №1

This healthy gluten-free and vegan-friendly protein powder cookie dough needs just five simple ingredients and is ready in five mins! It contains 20g of protein and only 200 calories so eat and don’t worry! The cookie tastes like a chocolate chip cookie and birthday cake flavored cookie mixture.

Get your own best food processor and blender to ease cooking.

You can use a simple whey protein or plant-based protein if you are a vegan! But don’t forget that the vegan protein is much less absorbent, so it’s better to use less applesauce in this case.

Protein Cookie Dough Recipe №2

I know the way to eat raw cookie dough with maximum good for you. This is not cookie dough in fact, but it tastes the same way and this post-workout snack is much better for your shapes. There is no butter in this protein cookie, this significantly reduces the total number of calories and fat.

  • Cooking Time – 15 mins
  • Serving – 12 Portions

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 0.5 cup almond flour
  • 0.25 cup almond butter
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp dairy-free mini chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut without sugar (optional)
  • Water (if needed)

Steps:

  • Mix protein, almond butter, almond flour, chocolate chips, honey, and optional coconut.
  • Pour in water slowly if needed and blend until the consistency you wish.

This gluten-free dough is nutritious as it contains coconut and almond butter. Healthy fats and protein will provide energy.

Recipe №3

We replace the flour with protein powder increasing the amount of protein and reduces the carbohydrate content. As the first recipe, this one contains 20 g of protein but only 125 calories.

Such protein cookies can be eaten 30-60 minutes before workout, in order to provide you with energy from fast and slow carbohydrates (an excellent alternative to protein bars).

  • Total Cooking Time – 3 minutes
  • Serving – 1 Portion

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop plant-based protein powder
  • splash vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp powdered peanut butter (or 1 tbsp nut butter)
  • 2-4 tbsp almond milk
  • stevia (optional)
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut without sugar (optional)
  • cacao nibs

Steps:

  1. Combine the powdered peanut butter and protein.
  2. Add the vanilla extract and 1 tbsp almond milk at a time, until you get consistency you need.
  3. Sweeten to your taste.
  4. Put in fillings which you like.
  5. Make balls or just eat with a spoon.

Nutritional Value for 1 Portion (without adds-in):

Protein cookies will be tastier (but more nutritious) if you add your favorite toppings –  nuts, raisins, sprinkles, oats, caramel – whatever you wish.
