The Best Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies
Updated: Feb 24
Have you ever had the strong sweet tooth craving that you just can not seem to get rid of. Have no fear this protein chocolate chip cookie recipe will help you crack that sweet tooth craving while not completely destroying your diet. Who am I to say that this recipe will even be any good, well I have been in the kitchen most of my life cooking a variety of different deserts and meals for myself and others. Through out my journey here I have realized sometimes you need just something a little sweet that can help you stay on track and this is the recipe I developed.
While this is a healthier recipe you are able to substitute some of the ingredients to either make it gluten free or you can use a sugar replacement to drop the calories even more. This recipe will make 8 larger cookies with a total time of 10 minutes for prep and 8-10 cook time.
List of Ingredients
1.5 scoops of Ghost Chip Ahoy Protein Powder
1 cup flour
3/4 cup of butter (melted)
1/2 cup of milk (I used fairlife for extra protein and no lactose)
1 TBSP on vanilla extract
3/4 cup of light brown sugar (can use Swerve for lower calorie)
1 Cup of Lily's Sugar free Milk Chocolate Chips
1 tsp of flakey salt for finishing
Step 1: Mixing dry the ingredients
First step is to get the bowl you are going to use to make the dough. I personally used my Kitchen Aid. Then grab your measuring spoons and measuring cups for the ingredients. I then sifted the one cup of flour into the mixing bowl separating out any clumps that may have formed in the flour. Then I add in the light brown sugar and the 1.5 scoops of Ghost Chips Ahoy protein powder to the mixing bowl. Mix the three ingredients together on a low setting on the kitchen aid.
Step 2: Adding in the wet ingredients
Next I would add the butter to a microwave safe bowl and using 10 second intervals microwave the butter until it have just barely fully melted. I would then add in the butter, milk, vanilla extract, egg into the bowl and mix the ingredient together on a low setting. Once all the ingredients are fully combined then add in the 1 cup of chocolate chips and fold in with a spatula.
Step 3: Forming the Cookies
I would begin preheating your oven to 350°F. Next if you have a cookie scooper or a melon baller works great, grab that and lightly spray the inside with cooking spray to help the cookies not stick to the baller. Then, begin to scoop out your dough into balls and place onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Once you have 8-10 balls on your cookie sheet, then slightly press each cookie a little bit to flatten them out. Now top each cookie with a little bit of flakey salt for the extra flavor.
Step 4: Baking the Cookies
Once the oven has fully preheated place the cookies into the oven on the middle rack for 8-10 minutes. Each oven is different and will have different cook times. Pull the cookies from the oven while they are a little underdone as the carry over heat will finish cooking them on the wire rack as they cool. now transfer the cookies onto a wire rack to cool. Once removed, repeat with any leftover dough until all cookies have been made.
Step 5: Consume the Cookies
