You can easily find pre-packaged chocolate chip cookies or cookie dough-flavored protein bars, trying very hard to mimic the real deal. Their labels boast an astronomical amount of protein with carb grams so low they aren’t worth mentioning. Some of these better-for-you fuel options are actually better for you. Many, however, are far from the optimal post-workout formula. What makes this protein recipe more than a (chocolate) chip off the ole block? Nutrient-rich tahini. 

High-Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe


¼ cup oat flour
2 scoops NLA Her Whey Vanilla Cupcake Whey Protein Powder
1 cup stevia-sweetened dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup coconut sugar
2 Tbsp. tahini
2 Tbsp. almond milk
½ tsp. baking soda
1 whole egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and coat a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except chocolate chips) and stir until mixed through.
  3. Fold in chocolate chips until fully incorporated.
  4. Form dough into balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Note: dough will be sticky, so you may want to coat your hands with flour before handling.
  5. Bake cookies 8-10 minutes, or until golden.
