Protein Cookie Dough

I love making my kids a snack to enjoy right after school and I came up with this Protein Cookie Dough! This cookie dough has only 7 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to make. My kids love it and I love knowing that they are getting some nutrients such as protein, fiber and vitamins in their snack. This makes the best little dessert treat! It has a strong vanilla flavor which is delicious and is much healthier than regular cookie dough.

Protein Cookie Dough Ingredients

  • Naked Nutrition Kids Daily Essentials Nutrition Shake
  • Oat flour (I buy it like this but you can also just grind your oats in a blender until it is a powder)
  • Peanut butter or cashew butter (cashew butter gives a milder flavor) 
  • Maple syrup (honey works too)
  • Milk of choice- I love using 2% milk
  • Vanilla extract- helps give the cookie dough that typical cookie dough flavor
  • Chocolate chips

How to Make Protein Cookie Dough

Protein cookie dough is so easy to make! Just mix all of the ingredients together well and you can either enjoy immediately or let it firm up and cool in the fridge. I haven't tried baking the cookie dough. This recipe is for those who love to eat cookie dough as is!

Protein for Kids

Protein is such an important nutrient for building and repairing muscle and bones, making hormones and enzymes and more. A couple of my kids love eating protein rich foods but one my kids could take or leave meat, peanut butter, etc. She is also an athlete so protein is super important. I am always working on ways to make sure she gets enough protein.

Kids probably need less protein than you think though! Kids 1-3 need 13 grams, 4-8 need 19 grams and 9-13 need 34 grams of protein per day. Since my kids are very active, I think that they need more protein than these minimums but do what is best for your family.

Protein Cookie Dough Nutrition

My 7-year old son Oliver is obsessed with protein shakes. He loves pouring a big glass of 2% milk and adding a scoop of the Naked Nutrition Kids Daily Essentials Nutrition Shake into it. It's definitely one of his favorite go-to snacks. Between the 8 grams of protein in a cup of milk and one scoop of the shake with 8 grams of protein, you're getting 16 grams of protein in one drink which is amazing. Kids tend to go for snacks like crackers and sweet treats so when I can get them to enjoy a higher protein snack that will actually fill up their bellies, I love that!

Healthy Protein Cookie Dough

Kids Daily Essentials has 100 calories per scoop, 8 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, only 1 gram of sugar it is sweetened with monk fruit), and 25 vitamins and minerals added. It has a blend of 6 vegetable powders: broccoli, kale, spinach, alfalfa grass, spirulina and wheat grass. The nutrition shake mix has no artificial flavors, colors and preservatives and is gluten-free. It comes in chocolate and vanilla flavors and I love this as an additional way for my kids to get some nutrients in their diets.
