Crafting a Single-Serve Protein Cookies Recipe

Making a single-serving protein cookie recipe combines high-protein ingredients for a guilt-free treat in a quick and rewarding recipe. The base of this dish is a scoop of whey protein powder, which comes in vanilla or peanut butter flavors and provides a flexible base for personalization. Whether it is peanut, almond, cashew, tahini, or sunflower butter, the nut or seed butter gives the cookie a rich, creamy texture that improves taste and nutrient content. The cookie, which may be sweetened with agave, honey, maple, or coconut sugar, strikes a deliciously balanced sweetness without sacrificing choices that are good for you.

These ingredients are combined in a mixing dish to create a sticky batter that serves as the foundation for the protein cookie. Optional extras like chocolate chips with stevia sweetness enhance the flavor even further. The secret is to get the batter to the proper consistency, making sure that it is not too moist and adding more protein powder if necessary.

The next step is the assembly of a protein ball, which is ideally chilled in the refrigerator or freezer for a short while in order to get a firm yet chewy feel when microwaved. The cooking method begins with placing the protein ball on parchment paper on a microwaveable dish and flattening it to the appropriate thickness. Cook in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute, checking the cookies carefully every 20 seconds to make sure they come out precisely cooked and without sizzling.

After the cookie has finished cooking in the microwave, it may be cooled for three to five minutes to solidify into the perfect chewy texture. In addition to satisfying your sweet tooth, this single-serving protein cookie provides a high-protein, adaptable snack that fits your nutritional requirements. Savor the pleasing harmony of tastes and the ease of preparing a fast dessert that can be microwaved to meet your nutritional needs while satisfying your taste buds.

Single Serving Protein Cookie

Ingredients

1 Serving
Serving Size:82
* Optional Substitution Note
  • 1 scoop whey protein powder, vanilla or peanut butter flavor
    • vegan protein; casein protein
    • Use checkout code FMC for 10% off
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) nut or seed butter
    • any will do - peanut, almond, cashew, tahini, sunflower
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon (20g) agave
    • honey, maple, coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
    • Add more as needed
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (sweetened with Stevia) - OPTIONAL

Steps

Step 1

In a mixing bowl add all of the ingredients and stir until well mixed and a sticky batter forms.  Then add in any optional items like chocolate chips, sprinkles, freeze dried fruit, etc.

Note: the batter should NOT be wet. If it is, add a tablespoon of protein batter to the mix.

Use your hands to form a ball.

Best practice: place the protein ball in the freezer for 5 minutes (or fridge for 10 minutes).  This helps it become more solid so it won’t expand too quickly in the microwave.

Step 2

Put a piece of parchment paper on a microwaveable plate and place the protein ball in the center.  Mash it down using your hand until it covers the inside of your palm.  If you have big hands, then just make sure the cookie is not pressed too flatly or it will expand even more in the microwave and potentially dry out because it is so thin.

Step 3

Microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute, checking it every 20 seconds to ensure it is not sizzling or about to explode.

Step 4

Remove from the microwave and let it cool for 3 – 5 minutes to harden, just like chewy cookies.
