Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies


These chocolate chip protein cookies are perfectly soft and chewy with chocolate chunks and a mix of granulated and brown sugar substitutes to make them basically melt in your mouth.


  • 2 scoops (62g) Vanilla Protein Powder*
  • 1/2 C (60g) All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 C (112g) Light Butter
  • 1/4 C (48g) Swerve Granular
  • 1/4 C (48g) Swerve Brown
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste (or extract)
  • 1/4 C (48g) Chocolate Chunks 
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the protein powder, flour, and baking powder together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Add the light butter, Swerve brown, Swerve granular, and vanilla bean paste to a food processor, stand mixer, or large bowl. Mix until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until a crumbly dough begins to form. (I used 4 pulses in the food processor.)
  5. Remove the blade from the food processor and add the chocolate chunks. Use a rubber spatula to bring the dough together into one large ball.
  6. Divide the dough into 8 pieces and press between your palms to flatten. Place the cookies on the parchment paper, sprinkle with salt, and bake for 7-9 minutes until the cookies are still slightly soft in the center. Transfer to a wire rack to cool the cookies.


  • If you're using another sweetener, make sure it's a 1:1 substitute for granulated and brown sugar, respectively.
