Protein-Packed Sugar Cookie Recipe

Share This Post

The holidays just aren’t the same without some sugar cookies.

Do you have body composition goals and still want to enjoy some damn cookies? These are the perfect treat for you.

It’s important to strike a balance and not become a neurotic mess over traditional holiday foods, especially when sharing these moments with friends and family.

Most gatherings involve food for an optimal human experience, so it’s crucial to learn how to navigate these situations successfully.

We can still have fun, enjoy the holidays, and not completely sabotage our goals.

These cookies are a solid choice and have become my new go-to’s. However, remember that one day of diet indulgence in the context of a consistently solid diet and healthy habits is nothing to stress over.

Enjoy yourself, make some memories, and please don’t tell Grandma she’s giving you diabetes or causing a metabolic nightmare with her pie.

Protein-Packed Sugar Cookie Recipe (for approx. 40 cookies)


  • 1 Cup Oat Flour
  • 1 Cup Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 3/4 Cup Cashew Butter
  • 3/4 Cup Erythritol or Lakanto
  • 4 Tsp Pyure Stevia
  • 1 Whole Egg + 1 Egg White
  • 1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. Prepare Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine oat flour, vanilla whey protein powder, baking powder, and baking soda.
  2. Prepare Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, whip the cashew butter until it has a smooth, whipped texture.
    • Beat in the erythritol, stevia, egg, egg white, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Combine Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing bit by bit until a crumbly dough forms.
  4. Form Dough Balls:
    • Divide the dough into two balls. Roll out the first ball until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Use wax paper or a floured surface to prevent sticking.
  5. Cut Out Shapes:
    • Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and place them on a cookie sheet. Re-roll and cut out the dough until it’s all used up.
  6. Add Decorations (Optional):
    • If you prefer not to frost the cookies, consider adding sprinkles before baking. India Tree Nature’s Colors are a great option.
  7. Bake:
    • Bake at 350°F for 5-7 minutes. Repeat the process with the second dough ball.
  8. Cool and Decorate:
    • Let the cookies cool completely before frosting and decorating.
