The STUFT Protein Cookie

 

I know I’ve been a tease about this cookie. I couldn’t help myself. As soon as I made it I had to share a picture.

I thought about posting my crazy day yesterday (cleaning up toddler puke, backing up into trash cans, leaving my phone in the diaper bag and sending it with Andrew to take Judah to the doctor, teaching six classes, etc.). Then talking about how I ended it by staying up until 12:30 to watch The Bachelor, but who really wants to read about that right?

Right.

Instead I figured I better share this with you.

Um, yeah, I really can’t explain how obsessed I am with this. Since giving up dairy I’ve been missing my favorite Chef Jay’s protein bar. Anything with oats, peanut butter and protein pretty much rocks my world. I had to come up with my own dairy free, gluten free protein treat.

Well, I did.

This is one heck of a STUFT treat.

Just to be sure I’ve made it a few different ways and taste tested it every day for the past week.

I think I’m ready to share.

This can be eating straight from a bowl just like my original protein cookie dough or my chia protein cookie dough dip. Either of those recipes can also be made into a cookie form (you know, depending on your mood and all).

This recipe takes my basic protein dough up a notch.

I also give a PB2 free version, although I’m still baffled what people do without PB2 in their house. Ha ha.

Speaking of, I just got my shipment the other day from Bell Plantation.

I think I’m set for awhile, yes?

Okay, enough rambling Kristin.

Here’s pretty much the biggest and best chocolaty, peanut buttery (or other nut butter), vegan protein cookie around.

STUFT protein cookie

No Bake STUFT Protein Cookie

(serves one hungry mama)

1/4 cup oats (20 grams)

1/3 cup brown rice cereal (10 grams)

1 serving vanilla protein powder (around 25 grams)

sweetener (if using unsweetened protein powder)

2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce

1-2 tablespoon peanut butter (or other nut butter)

1 chocolate square or 2 tablespoons chocolate chips (30 grams)

 

Notes- You can sub in 2 tablespoons PB2 (12 grams) for half of the protein powder.

You may have to add just a little extra applesauce to make sure all ingredients combine.

 

Directions:

IMG_9258

Mix all ingredients except for the nut butter and chocolate in a small bowl.

IMG_9259IMG_9260

Optional- Add 1 tablespoon of nut butter to the dough. 

Note- If you’re only using one tablespoon you can save it for the top. If you’re using 2 tablespoons of nut butter, add one to the dough and save the other one for the top.

Press into one big cookie (or two smaller cookies) on wax paper.

Melt chocolate in microwave. (Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate squares are my favorite.)

Top with melted chocolate.

IMG_9302IMG_9304

Put in refrigerator (or freezer if you’re in a hurry to eat this sucker) until chocolate sets.

IMG_9324IMG_9326

Um, yeah.

IMG_9330

Yeah.

IMG_9332

You can even make it more of a cookie dough sandwich.

It would look a little like this.

IMG_9334IMG_9335

This is my favorite way.

IMG_9349IMG_9350IMG_9353

Oh man, this protein packed cookie is no joke.

There you go friends.

Try it.

Smile

Have a wonderful day!

    That cookie is insanity. It’s totally you, lol, in a good way. I’m glad you’ve found a new favorite awesome non-dairy treat! I’m going to try to make it with quinoa flakes since I can’t have oats.

      Totally me by being over the top trying to be healthy, but taking it a couple steps too far. Yes? :) Tell me about quinoa flakes. I’ve never heard of them.

      • Quinoa flakes are great but expensive. They make hot cereal sort of the consistency of oat bran/cream of wheat. I put them in pancakes and bars like I used to with oats. As a hot cereal it tastes like quinoa so I tend to make it savory and have it for lunches. Whole Foods has them if you wanna take a gander ;)

      Lindsay- oh my goodness. Every day we’ve got some issues going on over here. I may need your expert advice on gluten free living. My poor Judah. I think that may be his problem.

    Pb, oats, and chocolate… in a protein cookie, genius! Can’t wait to try it!

    Emily says:

    Can we use “prepared pb2″ (flour with water) in the dough instead? I wanted to keep the full protein effect and also keep it low fat. Thanks for so many versions of great recipes!

    toby says:

    I am concerned that there are 18 grams of sugar in this cookie, not including if you add a sweetner It is great that it is gluten and dairy free but thats a lot of sugar!!!!

    • 21.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Toby- The main source of sugar is the chocolate. You can use unsweetened chocolate instead (which I do sometimes) and it cuts the sugar way down. Also, an average 200 calorie Larabar has about 20 grams of sugar. I’d take my 18 grams of sugar over a a huge fattening regular cookie anyday. He he. :)

      • toby says:

        Thanks so much for clarifying that !!!

        • STUFT Mama says:

          No problem! :) I’ve used unsweetened chocolate and added my own sweetener to it as i melted it. It works just as well. I also make sure I use unsweetened protein powder. :) Have a great day Toby!

          • toby says:

            Unfortunately my stomach doesnt tolerate artificial sweetners so I use agave sometimes EVen though it is a little high calorie wise it is still llow on the glycemic index If you have any ideas of how to sweeten things naturally I would love the input

          • STUFT Mama says:

            I love using really ripe mashed up bananas to sweetened things up. If you microwave them they get a little juicy and taste even sweeter. :)

    When it says nut butter are you using the pb2 there? I just ordered my first bag!! Wish me luck I’m so excited for this recipe!!

    • 23.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Hi Ashley! When it says nut butter you can use any nut butter you want. Prepared PB2 (mixed with water) or a different nut butter (peanut butter, almond butter, etc.). I’m so excited for you that you just ordered your first bag. You’re going to get hooked. :)

  24. 24
    Ashley says:

    I’m trying to hold off on making this until it (pb2) comes in. Should be tomorrow or Tuesday. I’m new to your blog but I’m LOVING it. Do you ever post calories/nutritional facts on your recipes? Thanks for all o the great ideas on here– I’ve started a list of everything I need to make! Ha! I’m sure there will be plenty more to add

    • 24.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Hi Ashley! I sometimes post rough estimates, but am trying to include a little more of the nutritional information since I know some people want that. :) I’m so glad you found me. He he! I really can’t wait for you to get your PB2!!! :) It’s so fun! Hope you’re having a great Sunday!

    Ali says:

    Oh my goodness this recipe is pure genius!!!!!!! My mouth is water and I can’t wait to try it :)

    Lisa says:

    OMG. I just made this. it. is. amazing. Thank you for this recipe!! New favourite snack. Also I don’t get how people live without peanut flour! I don’t use PB2 but the peanut flour. I actually dislike peanut butter, so for some reason the PB flour tastes 7592 times better than regular PB haha..I do like other nut butters like almond and cashew though! :) Enjoy your sunday!

    :P … reacting to a post by Peachy Runner Girl, I tried this and liked it … not a LOT, but enough to make this regularly and eat one for a meryenda … it’s easy and portable and (minus any topping) doesn’t require special storage or handling other than a Zip-Loc bag …. ;)
