Quick, delicious, and full of protein!
These oatmeal cookies use Greek yogurt and protein powder to balance out the sweet stuff.
Switch up your go-to snack with these blueberry lemon protein cookies. Made with almond and oat flours, lemon zest, and blueberries, these gluten-free cookies are sure to hit the spot. And thanks to vanilla Greek yogurt and protein powder, they’ll actually keep you full. We suggest whipping up a batch on the weekend, then storing them in the fridge to have an afternoon snack at the ready all week long (if you can resist going back for more, that is).
For this recipe, we use a food processor to quickly ground the oats and mix all the ingredients together. The cookies can be prepped, baked, and ready in 20 minutes flat (really).
