  • 1 ¼ cups vanilla-flavored whey protein powder

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 6 tablespoons sucralose and brown sugar blend (such as Splenda® brown sugar blend)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 (10 ounce) bag chocolate chips

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

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

  3. 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.

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

  5. 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.
