Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Combine whey protein, whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

  • Beat butter, white sugar, brown sugar substitute, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing each one in fully before adding the next. Slowly beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts by hand.

  • Drop tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden brown, 9 to 12 minutes. Let cool for about 2 minutes before removing cookies from the sheets and placing on cooling racks.

Cook's Notes:

You can use Splenda(R) instead of white sugar for a lower-sugar alternative.

You can use any type of morsels you prefer, and any of your favorite chopped nuts.
