  • First, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Add all ingredients except chocolate chips to a mixing bowl. Mix until combined.
  • Fold in dark chocolate chips.
  • Scoop balls of dough onto lined baking pan. Press down lightly on each cookie. These cookies do not spread much while baking.
  • Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until cookies are set in the middle.
  • Finally, remove cookies from oven. Allow them to cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


  • Use a creamy, all natural peanut butter made with only peanuts and salt.
  • Peanut butters made with added oils and sugars will alter the texture of these cookies.
  • Any creamy nut butter can be used.
  • The cookies will have a slight protein powder taste so use your favorite protein powder.
  • I used Nuzest vanilla plant based protein.
  • Store leftover cookies covered at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • Freeze for up to 1 month if desired.
