  4. Scoop 1/4 cup scoops of the cookie dough onto the baking sheet. Flatten each cookie slightly.

Helpful hints

  • Store cookies in an air tight container or wrap individually and freeze until ready to grab for a quick breakfast on the go.
  • Scoop sizes vary for different protein powder brands. Check the label to see weight of one scoop to determine how much to add or use a scale to measure 1.5 ounces.
  • Enjoy breakfast cookies as a snack. Consider making 24 smaller cookies instead of 12.
