Protein Cookie Dough

You guyssssss!  Summer is in full swing.  Being a teacher, this means I have time.  Time to do what I want to do like go to the beach with Max,  do some stuff around the house, food shop in the morning with no crowds, and hit the gym.  After busting my tush with a crazy workout (check out @IamMissFit for some killer workouts on Instagram) I don’t want to come home and blow it on sweets.  But, like, I wanna eat cookie dough every now and then ya know?!  You guys know I love my desserts.  Not even love…LUUUURRRRVVVEE!

Well, this recipe is the ONE! The one that saved my healthy eating this week.  I was going to post a D-I-Y but needed to get this recipe off my chest.   There are only 4 ingredients and there aren’t any weird artificial things happening here.

Oh my goodness! PROTEIN cookie dough!!! Dream come true

Now that I have your attention, this recipe makes 5-6  one inch bites (or if you’re lazy too hungry or me and just want to eat it by the spoonful, it makes a full disposable bowl!).

4 ingredient protein cookie dough bites


  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use BSN whipped vanilla)
  • 1.5 T light agave nectar
  • 2T natural peanut butter
  • 1t mini chocolate chips

Mix the first three ingredients until dough begins to form the add in your chips. If dough seems too dry add in 1/2 teaspoon of water or almond milk until desired texture. Roll into truffles or eat straight from the bowl 🙂  If storing these, place in a ziplock in the fridge.
