Healthier remake on Lenny & Larrys protein cookies (: (Open me)
I’m usually super skeptical when it comes to anything protein powder (shakes, bars, cookies, etc), I’ve just never been a fan of the taste or texture of them. Lenny & Larrys make great tasting protein cookies but they don’t really have the best or “healthiest” list of ingredients, so I decided to try and recreate their protein cookies using healthier and more wholesome ingredients, for a healthy pre/post workout snack!
These turned out deliciously soft, perfectly sweet, and they don’t even taste like protein! Hope you love them as much as me (:
I do not count calories or track my macros (its not healthy and unnecessary in my opinion), but for the purpose of making these somewhat similar in protein I decided to be the math nerd that I am and actually calculate all the macros. Surprisingly my cookie ended up with more than half the fat! (Nutrition facts are listed under recipe)
1 Tbsp Flax (ground)
3 Tbsp Water
1 1/4 Cup (120grams) Oat Flour (or whole wheat flour)
2 Servings (64 grams) Protein Powder (I used sprout living original)
1/4-1/3 Cup (80-90 grams) Coconut Sugar
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Cup (127 grams) Apple Sauce (if you want a crispier cookie use 1/4-1/3 cup nut butter instead)
1/2 Cup (4 oz) Plant Milk (I used unsweetened cashew milk)
1 Tbsp Vanilla
Optional Add-Ins: Cinnamon (1/4-1/2 Tsp, Raisins (30 grams), Chocolate Chips (20 Grams).

You could basically have two huge cookies for about the half the fat and more protein!
