2. Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

After countless failed tries, I finally made chocolate chip protein cookies that aren't "weird." In fact, they're epic! These have everything you love about classic chocolate chip cookies: the drool-worthy flavors of butter, brown sugar, and vanilla; the melty chocolate chips; the soft and chewy middle; and the crisp golden edges. The best part? These cookies have an equal protein-to-carb ratio, and are lower in fat than your typical cookies. Each gooey morsel is only 75 calories!

  • Vanilla Protein Powder 60 G (I Used Bpi Best Protein)
  • Coconut Flour 6 Tbsp

  • Egg 1
  • Dark Chocolate Chips (60% Cacao) 1 Oz.
  • Light Butter, Softened 1/4 Cup
  • Vanilla Extract 1/4 Tsp
  • Salt 1/8 Tsp (Optional)

Directions

  6. Place 12 rounded tablespoons of dough onto sheet a couple inches apart. Press flat just slightly.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until edges are golden brown. Enjoy!

3. Birthday Cake Protein Blondies

It's somebody's birthday somewhere, and that's more than enough reason to dig into these festive brownies! I've made blondies similar to these before, but this recipe takes the cake (pun intended).

These blondies have a dense, soft crumb cake and thick, creamy frosting—oh, and they taste just like real birthday cake packed full of sugar, vanilla, and sprinkles! It's actually hard to believe they're low in fat, carbs, and sugar and packed with protein. Careful, these won't last long!

Ingredients

  • Vanilla Protein Powder 40 G (I Used Jamie Eason Lean Body For Her Whey Isolate)
  • Baking Stevia (Or Erythritol) 1/2 Cup
  • Baking Soda 1/8 Tsp
  • Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt 1/3 Cup
  • Cashew Or Coconut Butter 2 Tbsp (I Used You Fresh Naturals In White Chocolate)
  • Egg Whites 1/4 Cup
  • Vanilla Extract 1/2 Tsp
  • Salt A Dash (Optional)
  • Sprinkles 1 Tsp (Optional)
Frosting
  • Greek Cream Cheese (Or Whipped Cream Cheese) 1/2 Cup
  • Vanilla Protein Powder 25 G (I Used Jamie Eason Lean Body For Her Whey Isolate)
  • Stevia 2 Tbsp (I Used Truvia)
Optional Topping
  1. Sprinkles 1 tsp

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Mix in wet ingredients. Batter will be thick!
  4. Gently stir in sprinkles. Don't stir too much or the colors will bleed into the batter.
  5. Scoop batter into a 7x5 baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until center is set but an inserted toothpick comes out slightly dirty.
  7. While blondies cool, combine frosting ingredients. Frosting will seem thick at first, but keep working it until creamy.
  8. Spread over blondies and add sprinkles if desired. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
