Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Protein Cookies (and Giveaway!)

gluten free oatmeal raisin protein cookies - best protein cookie recipe
If you have ever wondered how to make protein cookies, you have come to the right place! When PlantFusion got in touch with me to ask about partnering with them to show off their awesome plant-based proteins I was excited to try them in some non-traditional ways - like in a baked good! I've seen a lot of people online asking if you can use protein powder in baking and I'm happy to say the answer after some extensive testing is YES (for PlantFusion anyway - no promises about anyone else's protein).

I spent several days baking batch after batch of protein oatmeal cookies and getting feedback from my kids and husband and I think what I've come up with here is pretty awesome! They have a great  oatmeal cookie flavor and boast a whopping 11 grams of protein! These would make a great afternoon snack when you need something with sticking power. If you don't normally eat breakfast, these would be a great alternative to help fuel you without having to eat a whole plate of food.

Directions

STEP 1 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper or a silicone nonstick mat.

STEP 2

Put all ingredients except raisins in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix with the mixing paddle attachment until well blended. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.

STEP 3

After sitting for 10 minutes, mix in raisins.

STEP 4

Divide dough into six portions, roll into balls and set on prepared cookie sheet (I found a large cookie scoop to be perfect for this!). Use clean fingers to flatten the balls and shape the cookies into small patties

STEP 5

Bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
Enjoy!
