No Bake Peanut Butter Protein Cookies


  • 1 cup all natural peanut butter
  • 4 scoops Gold Standard Whey protein powder (I like 2 scoops Optimum Nutrition Double Rich Chocolate and 2 scoops Optimum Nutrition White Chocolate)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup Splenda (feel free to add more or less – sweetness is to your taste)
  • Water (the amount of water needed will vary depending on the consistency of the peanut butter you use as well as its oil content)



  1. Combine peanut butter, protein powder, vanilla extract, and Splenda in a mixing bowl and mix together. You can use a mixer, which works great for this, or your hands.
  2. Slowly add water until mixture is dough-like.
  3. Roll into balls, then flatten between your hands.
    *Note: The finished product will be soft at room temperature so you can’t throw them in a bag and expect them to hold their shape!
  4. Place on wax paper and put into the freezer to harden.


  • what is the serving on these and how many do they make?

    • Hey Katie. The serving on these cookies is really up to you. You can go big or go small. I prefer small simply b/c I like smaller sized treats:) Calculate nutritional content based on the individual peanut butter and protein powder you use. Since I use all natural peanut butter that has 180 calories for 2 tablespoons, I multiply this by 8 (16 tablespoons to a cup), then add the content of my protein (Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey) to the peanut butter total. Since it’s a “healthy” snack, try to make around 25 or so cookies per batch, which will keep the nutritional content of the individual cookie at a reasonable level:):)
