Protein Brownie Cookies

There's nothing quite like the aroma of freshly baked treats filling your home during the cold winter months. These scrumptious cookies from our friends at the Cookiee Club are a comforting indulgence with a healthier twist since they contain less sugar and a generous dose of protein. Elevate your winter baking experience with this wholesome and delicious treat that combines the comfort of the season with a commitment to a healthier lifestyle.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and butter together in 30-second increments until silky smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the sugar and egg for 3 minutes until thick and pale in color. Dissolve the sugar as much as possible by whisking.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg and sugar mixture and whisk until just combined.
  5. Add the flour, protein powder, sea salt, and espresso powder (if using), and fold in with a rubber spatula until the last bit of flour disappears.
  6. With a 1.3 oz. cookie scoop, evenly drop 6-8 cookies onto a lined cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 350° F for 8-10 minutes until the edges are set and the cookie tops are shiny and crackly. Be careful not to overbake.
  8. Cool and enjoy with a tall glass of milk.

Wondering…..what else can be used in place of protein powder. I can’t afford $60 for a bag of protein powder. Would egg white protein powder work (while adding a little cocoa powder)?
Redmond Life replied: says that oat, almond, or coconut flour can be used as a substitute for protein powder in baking. But since the chemistry of baking can be so tricky, why not check out some of the other cookie recipes from our friends at Cookie Club? They have a chocolate chip cookie that looks delicious!

Wish you all had a print option on this page! Of just the recipe. When I try to print from the browser it’s like 7 pages lol. I don’t like wasting that much paper
