Looking for more healthy cookie varieties? I’ve got you covered!

If you prefer to stay away from protein powder, you might like these healthy double chocolate cookies instead. In lieu of protein powder, they get their protein boost (and added fiber) from black beans and some egg whites to help bind the ingredients.

They’re naturally sweetened with dates and honey. And they pack added nutritional punch with quinoa flour and flax seed.

I love grabbing a couple of healthy breakfast cookies on my way out the door on busy mornings or as a filling, guilt-free snack during the day.

I’ll admit it. I love cookies whether they are healthy or not, like my Texas Sheet Cake Cookies. Here are some of my personal favorites.

  1. I am a longtime baker and have just started trying to bake using more protein and fewer carbs. I made these cookies and my batter was extremely dry. Any suggestions what I did wrong?

    • If you look at Corinne’s reply to the other comment about the batter being runny, what she said might help you. I know your batter was dry, not runny, but she mentions how to make sure you’ve used the right amount of the ingredients, so I think that will help you.

  2. Hi! Can you help me troubleshoot this recipe? My batter came out runny. I used egg whites from the carton, a total of 12 tbsp to equal 4 egg whites. When I saw how runny it was, I improvised and put it in Muffin cups instead, but I’d like a thick dough like yours. Also – how many cookies should this make?

    • Hi Corrine! (Our names are so similar! I rarely meet other people named Corinne/Corrine) First, if you’re using liquid egg whites, the conversion should be 2 Tbs per egg white so you only need 8 Tbs (or 1/2 cup). That might be part of the problem. Also, make sure you’re using the right quantity for the oats. If you have oat flour, it’s one cup but if you are grinding the oats in your food processor, you need to start with 1 1/3 cup oats and don’t over process (that’s partly why mine look so grainy since I started with oats and not oat flour). You should get 18 cookies out of the dough. I hope this helps!
