Protein Packed Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here's the Dish

I know what you’re thinking… There is no way that you can make a cookie ‘healthy’, (much less, add protein powder), and still have it taste just as good. Well, after hours of experimenting, and many ‘failed’ batches of cookies, the perfect little protein-packed oatmeal chocolate chip cookie was born! These cookies are perfect for satisfying any sweet tooth, all while adding whole grains and protein to your diet. In my opinion, it doesn’t get any better than that if you ask me!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 15-20 minutes.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil or parchment paper, and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place 1/2 of the oats (1 cup) in a food processor, and grind until oats are ground into a flour. (if you want a completely smooth batter, you could also grind the other half of the oats here.)


In one bowl, mix together the oat flour with the rest of the oats and the rest of the dry ingredients. In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.


Mix the wet ingredients with the dry, and stir until combined.


Roll cookies into balls and place on the cookie sheet. (These cookies don’t spread much, so you don’t need to leave a lot of space in between them!)


Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are set and firm and only lightly colored. Store in an airtight container. Cookies may be wrapped and frozen.


2 cups Oats
1/4 cupProtein powder
1tsp Baking soda
1/4 tspSalt
6 tbs Butter, softened ( or coconut oil or margarine, softened)
1 tspVanilla extract
1 Egg
1/2 cupBaking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar 1
1/4 cupMini semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 I used NuNaturals More Fiber Stevia Baking Blend. If using packets of stevia, I recommend using about 8-12, or adjust according to taste.

Katie's Tip!

These can be frozen and microwaved for 30-60 seconds when you are craving a sweet, but healthy treat!

Hi! Just wanting to see what kind of protein powder do you use for these cookies?

Thanks so much!

hi kate! I used Designer Whey Protein Powder in vanilla! Any kind would work! :)

Lizzie said:

Katie, what sugar substitute do you use? Just 1 cup of Stevia? I am totally new to sugar substitutes. :)

April 25th, 2012 — 12:06pm  |  Reply

Dashing Dish said:

Hi Lizzie! Great question! You could use 1 cup of stevia if its a baking blend of stevia…but not the packets! The packets are much stronger, so you want to use 12-15 packets per cup of sweetener… All stevia’s are different, so I recommend trying 12-15 and taste a bit of the batter to see how you like it. Add more if you desire at that point… Also, if you use splenda, you can use the full 1 cup!

Jodie said:

I gave these a try this afternoon and they came out very sweet. Once I re-read your recipe I noticed I did not use the stevia baking blend. Instead I used a 1/2 cup of truvia. You can only imagine how sweet they were :)I am heading to the store tomorrow to buy some and try again. I’m also hoping I can figure out why my looked so “chunky” and not as smooth as your picture.

Dashing Dish said:

Hi Jodie! Did you blend the oats?

April 25th, 2012 — 9:26pm  | 

Jodie said:

Yes, I did. I blended one of the two cups and I melted the butter. It was a very dry batter. I think I will try coconut oil this time with the correct amount of sweetner. I’m not giving up – I think they will taste great once I figure out the sweetner :) Thank you so much for this website.

Angel said:

You mention using only 1/2 cup of the stevia baking blend vs. a cup of sugar substite. Would that be the same if using Truvia baking blend, use only 1/2 cup?

April 28th, 2012 — 5:44pm  |  Reply

Dashing Dish said:

yep, thats correct angel! :) although, all stevias are a bit different, so i would give the batter a quick taste, and see if its sweet enough, if not, add 1/4 cup more at a time :)

Is it possible there is another wet ingredient missing? I’ve checked and re-checked to be sure I didn’t miss something. I had a very difficult time getting the “batter” to stick together because it was so dry. Also, I don’t see any oats in your pic above. Should we be turning both cups into powder?

Dashing Dish said:

Hi darlene! no, there are supposed to be oats, the oats generally get very wet with the melted butter that they dont stay in ‘oat’ form…

Hi! I just made these. My batter actually came out pretty wet – so I just used my cookie scoop because there was no way they would roll into balls. When I pulled them out, my cookie sheet was one big giant cookie. So, they definitely spread like crazy. I’ve gone over the recipe about 3 times and I did it exactly how you did. I’m so confused.

I am having the same trouble! The first time I made these they turned out PERFECTLY and I was instantly in love (since I’m a chocolate chip cookie maniac and these are at least healthy) but every time since then it’s turned into one big giant cookie and I’m not sure why. I’ve used Splenda and regular sugar and now I’m going to try the baking stevia to see what happens. :) I’ll definitely keep tryin though because they are SOOOO good when they’re right! :)

Jess said:

I made these (twice in 2 days, actually) and my whole family loved them! Thanks so much. I used the coconut oil, but instead of a sugar substitute I used half a cup of sucanat (unrefined cane sugar) and blended all the oats. I still am unsure of how I feel about feeding sugar substitutes to kids and I had the sucanat on hand. It worked great. Thanks again.

These are great, but mine didn’t look likes yours. More like little haystacks. Didn’t spread. My batter was not too dry, so I’m wondering…
Did you flatten yours a little and/or did you blend all of the oats? I will definitely make these again! p.s. I used Stevia in the Raw baking blend and half a cup was perfect.

Hi! Thanks for all your wonderful recipes! I am trying to figure out what I did wrong with these cookies. They came out flat…and are not keeping together. They spread out a lot too. I just popped them in the fridge to see if I can salvage then that way. Unlike some of the posts, my batter looked fine and the ball stayed together for baking. I didn’t miss an ingredient…any ideas??? Thanks.

was it softened when you mixed it in or melted?

baking is a science…so it might be hard for me to pinpoint what went wrong with yours… ive had so many people say they came out, so it might of just been one little thing that was off when you made them.. so i would try again :)

also, were they salvageable enough to eat!? :)

May 22nd, 2012 — 7:14am  | 

Laura Shepherd said:

Yes we still ate them….we don’t discriminate :) My first time trying the stevia baking blend and I think I can definitely get used to it. For the butter, I did pop in the microwave and it was kind of half softened half melted. Next time I will plan ahead and soften it at room temp. Maybe I just over melted. Also I baked the cookies on the aluminum foil (out of parchment) next time I will try the other way. Thank you again for your wonderful recipes :)

If you’ve softened your butter in the microwave and it gets too melty, aka liquid butter in the center, you can end up with that flat-spread-out-cookie result.

My only complaint is that for me they were very thick! I think next time I will use 1 cup flour and 1 cup oats vs 2 cups of oats! They were excellent otherwise, not too sweet and the perfect little treat when you get a sugar craving!

I really love your website. I have tried three recipes and they all have worked out great. This fourth recipe is a little bit tricky. First try, it was not forming a ball, too dry. Then I added 1/2 tsp more of coconut oil, but then it was too sticky. I am wondering if you would mind sharing the exact brands of oats, coconut oil, and protein powder? Maybe this recipe is a little tricky if the exact brands are not used. I put the big pile on a roasting pan with parchment paper and spread it out. We will see if it can still be eaten, I hope so, it looks yummy. Thanks!

hmm… not sure what happened but i did use smart balance butter, and formed balls and pressed them down a bit before baking! brand of oats shouldnt matter much (as long as they are old fashioned, not quick cooking oats), and i used designer whey pp!

Ok, thank you! I will try again. I put the pile on the roasting pan and let it cook as one big cookie. It was amazing! We ate the whole thing. Thanks!

Wonderful news, I figured out what I was doing wrong and want to share. I was over mixing. After the fourth batch (because they are that yummy), I figured out I was stirring too much. This last time I used a fork and folded in the wet ingredients and lightly stirred until everything was wet and covered. Then I added the chocolate chips and barely mixed them around. They were very easy to roll and squish in my hand to form little balls. Again, thank you for your time in creating healthy alternatives.

As for this recipe: YUM. I decided to make it even more protein-packed and substituted plain Greek yogurt for half of the butter. It worked quite well! The only change needed was to add a splash of milk because it was too dry to form into balls. I also needed to flatten them and bake an extra 5 minutes. But, all in all, it worked! :)

I decided to bake these for my moms teacher in-service snack table at her school, and I have to say…the cookie dough was even better than regular (un-healthy) cookie dough! I have a mild sweet tooth, and these cookies turned out pretty sweet. I used 1/2 cup of agave, and 4 packets of stevia. This blend would be PERFECT for someone with a sweet tooth. If I didn’t know any different, I would have thought these were regular cookies…I love this recipe!!!

Hi you mention oat flour in the instructions but it’s not listed in the ingredients? Looking forward to trying these.

These are very good. I used a little Stevia and pure maple syrup. And also the coconut oil. Great wheat free recipe. Thanks.

I tried this recipe yesterday, and they turned into more of a flapjack than a cookie? I have no idea where I went wrong but they taste amazing, I used cookies and cream protein powder and I’d highly recommend, thank you for the ideas!

I tried these cookies but didn’t have any stevia on hand today. I replaced stevia with just a half a banana since they are sweet. I used coconut oil instead of butter and only ground 1/4 a cup of oatmeal and added that on top of 2 cups of old fashioned oatmeal. My husband loved the chunkier texture. I made another batch similar but used a little agave nectar and less banana…and I ground the oatmeal like you suggested.Both were very good! I also added some chopped walnuts to the second batch. Mine weren’t dry at all.. maybe it was the coconut oil. and I kinda of guessed on the oil.. so maybe I put a little too much.. but I LOVE THEM! Thank you so much!

Could you freeze the dough and bake it later? If so, would that modify the baking time?

So yummy. I added half peanut butter chips and half white chocolate chips rather than regular chocolate. I also threw in sliced almonds for texture and just about a tablespoon of agave nectar to help hold it together. My kids loved it!!

Can you add bananas instead of chocolate chips? Or with the chocolate chips? Thank you!

I just made these for the first time and they are scrumptious! I use natural proteins over protein powder so I substituted my usuals (hemp,flax,chia,wheat germ) and for my sugar I ground up Dates. Very yummy! Thanks for this website! I’ve made several dishes in the past week since being introduced to your site and they have been great!

Hi! I was just wondering if I could use only oat flour to make it really smooth. If so would I still need two cups, or a little less since the flour takes less space than the oats?

How are you guys dealing with rolling these into balls? My dough was incredibly sticky with me having to cover my hand in more fine oats to be able to roll it, what have you guys done?
