No-Bake S'mores Protein Cookies

Yup, more protein cookies! I am determined to find the PERFECT recipe....until then, here are some delicious no-bake cookies!

If you like cookie dough, you will absolutely love these protein cookies! They are hearty, chocolaty, and peanut-buttery (is that a word?). I'd say these might even be breakfast-appropriate as well!

These cookies are made for a post-workout refuel. Carbohydrate to protein ratio is 2:1 and have a mix of complex vs. simple carbohydrates. They are a tad high in fat due to the peanut butter, but luckily it's healthy fats! Give them a try please comment with your thoughts!

No-Bake S'mores Protein Cookies
Adapted from The Big Man's World
Makes 15 cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tbsp raw sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup vanilla protein powder (I used Designer Whey)
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. In a large bowl, stir together rolled oats, graham cracker crumbs, sugar, salt, and protein powder. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine peanut butter and agave nectar. Microwave in 10 second increments until melted and smooth.
  3. Pour peanut butter mixture into oat mixture and stir until fairly-well combined. Add almond milk and stir to combine (will be very thick). Add marshmallows and chocolate chips and combine (I used my hands mix at this point).
  4. Form 15 palm-sized cookies and place on a baking sheet. Store in refrigerator to allow them to harden.
