There are tons of easy no-bake chocolate protein cookies, but they all add extras that I don't want to add to my cookies. Instead I do a super easy chocolate that is great for days when I need extra carbohydrates.
There is no cooking involved what-so-ever. There are only five ingredients, and a very tasty treat to add to a bland diet. Several other no-bake chocolate protein cookie recipes call for coconut chips or vanilla extract, but I want an easy, fast recipe.
Ingredients for no-bake chocolate Protein cookies: 6 to 8 cookies
Instructions: prep time five minutes
Pour oats into a mixing bowl. Mix until semi-moist. Crumble banana into mixture then mash/mix with fork. The oats will begin to stick. Add honey, and protein powder. Pour hot water in a little at a time until reaching your preferred consistency.
Depending on water, the cookies will be moist, or nearly gooey.
Spoon one cookie into Saran wrap, and form the cookie. Tie off Saran wrap and refrigerate. When it's time for a snack; take it along or eat it then.
Baked Alternative and Ingredient additions
After to speaking to a member at my gym about no-bake chocolate protein cookies he wanted to see what they would be like baked; so I did it.
***Baking instructions: Bake on 375* for eight to 10 minutes depending on size.
I like them both ways, and baking them is good if the consistency is too moist. Almond butter, peanut butter or crushed nuts are also a great addition if you don't have a nut allergy.
Please remember the macros listed are for the entire batch of cookies, and not for a single cookie. These numbers were found on www.myfitnesspal.com
