Protein oat cookies

It's really hard to resist these divine peanut butter cookies! Simple yet delicious sweets that are healthy, nourishing, and can be prepared in just 25 minutes. I always have these ingredients in my kitchen, so anytime I crave something sweet but still healthy, I can make them right away.

Perfect for an afternoon snack or even a little treat with morning coffee. I also like to grab a bite before exercising to energise myself a bit.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Baking: 18 minutes


  • 2 cups of oats
  • ⅓ scoop + 1 tbsp Essablend vegan vanilla protein
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 1.5-2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil (room temperature or melted)
  • A pinch of salt
  • Optional:
  • ⅓ cup of finely chopped dark chocolate
  • 2 tsp flaxseed
  • Chia seeds



  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Prepare a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl, thoroughly mix the wet ingredients, then add the dry mixture and combine the ingredients thoroughly.
  4. If you want to add optional ingredients to the cookies, mix them in as well.
  5. Using a tablespoon, scoop out small portions, first forming them into balls in your hands, then flattening them to about half to one centimetre thickness and giving them a round cookie shape. Then, place the cookies on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. (If the mixture feels a bit dry, you can add a little plant-based milk.)
  6. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the cookies for 16-18 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Let the cookies cool for 15 minutes.
  8. Enjoy your meal!
