Do you find yourself searching for a sweet but healthy snack? Look no further, try our oatmeal protein cookie! These protein cookies contain 7 grams of protein per cookie! These protein cookies as a snack are delicious and will satisfy any sweet craving you may have. They give me prolonged energy and are my favorite afternoon pick-me-up.
Some people do not like to bake cookies because they’re messy. But these cookies can be made in a blender and ready to be placed in the oven in under 5 minutes! Once taken out of the oven, allow to cool and enjoy! They can also be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Although in my house, they didn’t even last a day!
Why should we eat protein cookies? There are many reasons why protein is important for us, so why not get those benefits through a cookie? Of course, there are many protein-rich foods, such as meat, nuts, protein shakes etc, but let’s be honest – we all need a treat in our lives!
Having protein cookies at hand is a great way of rewarding yourself, but without going overboard! Protein is a great way to fill you up, which leaves your appetite and muscles satisfied! Protein will keep you feeling full for much longer than simple carbohydrates and sugars. Looking for protein cookies in the supermarkets? Don’t be fooled by the label! Major brands produce protein cookies which are high calorie and are loaded with sugar. Therefore, I wanted to create an easy low calorie, high protein cookie recipe.
