The day I got my first shipment of Magnum protein powder in the mail from Mtn Ops I knew I had to make cookies with it. Based on all other cookie recipes, I knew I needed some liquid, some powder, and some flavor, so I started grabbing things from my pantry to experiment with. I wanted something that I could grab on the go, or throw in my daypack as a healthy snack with sustainable energy.
So far, this is my favorite combination of ingredients…
⅓ cup Instant Oats
1 scoop Magnum powder (any flavor)
2 tsp of peanut, almond, or any nut butter (I use PB2 powder)
1 whole egg
handfull of nuts (I use hazelnuts)
1 tsp Splenda blend brown sugar
(optional) I use a handful butterscotch chips
Now mix it all together. If it seems dry, I’ll add a splash of almond (or regular) milk, but not much. It should have the consistency of cookie dough. Add more protein powder if it’s too runny.
This is a small recipe and will only make about 6 or 8 cookies. Sometimes I just keep adding ingredients until the batch is bigger. It’s a forgiving recipe, so be open minded and experiment with different ingredients. (I’ve mixed in some honey, bananas, and lots of other healthy ingredients!)
Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
