    OMG I have finally found a recipe that involves my protein powder that does not make my cookies rubbery! I used white choc chips (preference) and crunchy peanut butter instead of my first choice of smooth. They are delish warm! Only problem is they are too nice and will not last long! wonder if you can overload n protein ;-)  -  02 Jan 2016

    Just make sure that your protein powder is heat stable, as most aren't. If the protein powder isn't heat stable, the protein will break down & you won't be getting the full amount of added protein. Optimal Nutrition makes a heat stable protein called Any Whey. It is heat stable up to 450 degrees. I use it to make my own protein bars.  -  15 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I was so excited to find a recipe that would use up that extra protein powder I had sitting around my house. I was wondering if the cookies would be any good, and they really really were! One note - I did use a chocolate flavored powder which seemed to blend well with the other ingredients. The cookies seem a little 'heavy' but they are soft and delicious! Also, my yield was much higher, and I made them into what I thought were decent-sized cookies. Thanks for a good and interesting recipe!  -  17 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
