This high-protein recipe uses cottage cheese as its foundation and sweetened with maple syrup or natural sweeteners like stevia drops or brown sugar for optimal sweetness. Whey protein ensures rapid delivery of amino acids to muscles, while casein ensures longer release from it.
Utilizing simple ingredients you most likely already have on hand, this high protein cookie dough is an easy and healthy solution to satisfy sweet cravings. Just a handful of ingredients is required and creation takes just minutes!
Maple syrup is used as a sweetener in this recipe; however, other liquid sweeteners (ideally sugar-free ones) can also be substituted as desired. Feel free to experiment with other vanilla protein powder flavors; just remember it may alter texture significantly.
Almond flour is also featured in this recipe to give the dough-like texture that we know and love; alternatively, use oat or gluten-free baking flour if desired for a completely vegan and gluten free experience. Once made, enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week; alternatively freeze if preferred!

To make high protein no-bake cookie dough, combine all the ingredients in a blender until everything is blended until creamy and doughy. If you are having trouble getting an even consistency between all the components, add one tablespoon at a time until your desired texture has been reached.

To make cookie dough, all that’s required to create it is creamy peanut butter, maple syrup (I recommend sugar free), and vanilla extract. If peanuts aren’t your cup of tea, feel free to swap in other nut butter such as almond or cashew or even tahini for the maple syrup if necessary; alternatively honey, agave nectar, or powdered sugar substitutes like erythritol/stevia could work too!
Just add vanilla-flavored protein powder. Whey, casein or pea protein powders may all work for this cookie dough recipe, although I recommend brown rice or pea powder as its neutral taste makes for the best experience. Enjoy as a snack or treat and store for up to three days in your refrigerator!
