How to measure out these cookies

I like using the 1.5 Tbsp. OXO Stainless Steel Small Cookie Scoop from Target for these cookies. I also have the smaller 1″ which makes a smaller cookie. Both are great. You can use 1.5 tbsp. to scoop out your double chocolate protein cookies into equal size balls before placing on the baking sheet. 

How can I add more protein?

You can substitute some of your oat flour with whey protein. I like using Bob’s Red Mill unflavored whey protein concentrate or vanilla protein powder. You could even add chocolate whey protein and call them triple chocolate cookies …

Benefits of oat flour

These double chocolate protein cookies use oat flour which is packed with nutritional benefits. Oat flour is made with ground oats and most of the time only contains one ingredient—whole grain oats. You can even make your own oat flour at home with a high-speed blender or purchase store-bought varieties at some grocery stores. I am using Bob’s Red Mill Oat Flour. It is said that oat flour may sustain energy levels, have cardiovascular benefits, lower cholesterol, rich in vitamins and minerals and 1 cup has 15.3 grams of protein. You can substitute with gluten free flour, all-purpose flour or your favorite baking flour.

Do you need to use a stand mixer?

No! I use a hand mixer for this recipe. This is recommended in order to get the butter and sugar to completely mix prior to adding the dry ingredients to the double chocolate protein cookies. 

Mix in ideas for these cookies

These double chocolate protein cookies would be great with the addition of white chocolate chips, chopped walnuts or fun flavored extracts like peppermint, mint or almond.

Ingredients and Substitutes:

These are the main ingredients and substitutions. See recipe card below for full ingredients list and instructions for these double protein chocolate cookies. 

This recipe makes 18 cookies using a 1.5 Tbsp. cookie scoop. You can also make this into smaller cookies. Adjust the bake time back by a few minutes and monitor if making them smaller. 

Oat Flour: you can substitute oat flour with all-purpose flour 1:1. 

Vanilla Protein Powder: this recipe uses 1 (31g) scoop of vanilla protein powder. Use your favorite brand to bake with. You can also substitute with other flavors to make different flavored cookies. 

Unsweetened Cocoa: I use this cocoa powder in all my recipes. This is the first addition of chocolate in the double chocolate cookies. 

Swerve Brown Sugar: I am using Swerve Brown Sugar replacement for these cookies to avoid added sugar and higher calorie cookies. You can substitute with real brown sugar 1:1. 

Swerve Granular Sugar: I am using Swerve Granular Sugar replacement for these cookies to avoid added sugar and higher calorie cookies. You can substitute with real white sugar 1:1. 

Butter: this recipes uses unsalted room temperature butter. I suggest you place a stick of butter out on the counter the night before you want to bake these cookies. You can substitute with melted coconut oil or a 50/50 of the two. 

Eggs: eggs add structure and flavor to these double chocolate protein cookies. 

Vanilla Extract: this recipe uses vanilla extract, you can use other flavors if desired but the vanilla adds a great taste and sweetness to the cookies. 

Chocolate Chips: for this recipe I am using Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips. You can use milk chocolate, dark or even white chocolate chips for this recipe. This is where the double comes from in double chocolate cookies.
