Oreo Inspired Protein Cookies (Vegan)

Oreo Inspired Protein Cookies (Vegan)

This recipe for Protein Oreos – or Oreo Inspired Protein Cookies, rather – is pretty wild. The protein cookies you end up with are really tasty, reminiscent of Oreos yet high in protein instead of high in sugar, and extremely easy to make! Below is the recipe but please do also read the notes provided below as it contains useful substitutions and comments. Have fun with this one!
For the cookies
1/8 cup black onyx cocoa powder (see Note 1 for subs)
1/8 cup chocolate veggie protein powder (Vegan Protein would be perfect, as would Vegan Wondershake or Pea Protein 80)
2 tablespoons tahini (aka sesame seed paste) or peanut butter
1 tablespoon agave syrup
1 teaspoon regular honey
3 fat medjool dates, pitted
For the filling
1 tablespoon xylitol (see Note 2 for subs)
1 tablespoon coconut flour
3 tablespoons cartoned coconut milk (or almond milk)
1/8 cup vanilla veggie protein powder (Vegan Protein would be perfect, as would Vegan Wondershake or Pea Protein 80)
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1. First, blend together all your cookie ingredients using an immersion blender or food processor. Give the batter a taste but be sure you’re strong enough to not eat the whole thing because it tastes like Oreo cookie dough and, well… enough said.
2. Divide the mix into 12-18 little balls (depending on how big your muffin cases are) and flatten them on the bottom of 12-18 muffin cases (this ensures they’re round and end up with a ridged edging – like Oreos. I recommend you use silicone muffin cases to ensure the cookies definitely don’t stick when you unmold them.
3. Bake at 190 C (374 F) for about 10-15 minutes or until they’ve cooked through and ‘feel right’ (you know, like Oreos).
4. Once your cookies have cooled, make your filling by mixing the filling ingredients together in a bowl until you get a creamy consistency. If your mix is too crumbly, add a bit of water to it (or cartoned coconut milk) until your mix becomes nice and thick.
5. Roll the filling out into nine little balls and sandwich each one in between two cookie-halves.
6. Enjoy!

Note 1:  Black Onyx cocoa powder is a really exciting ingredient – very rich and unique in flavor. If you can’t get it where you are though, don’t worry. Use regular cocoa powder instead!

Note 2: If you want to sub the xylitol, you can use baking Splenda or stevia instead.
PS: I know a lot of you will want to know whether you can make this using another protein powder – whey maybe? the answer is yes and no. Yes, you can substitute the rice protein powder but no, you can’t use whey. You can use casein though! Just bear in mind that, if you do, your Protein Oreos will no longer be vegan.
