If I were to create a “Most Made Recipes” list, this cookie recipe would no doubt be in the top 5. 😆
What I love about these cookies:
1. They are easy as all get out to make. All you need is one bowl, then just mix everything together and pop ’em in the oven!
2. They are delicious! All credit goes to the black cocoa on this one. The black cocoa creates more of a “cookies and cream” type of cocoa flavor compared to flavor that your traditional cocoa powder brings. It also helps keeps the cookies moist, and the resulting product is a flavorful, melt-in-your-mouth, Oreo-cake like chocolate cookie. (YES)
3. You get a large volume of them for the low amount of calories they pack! If you know anything about me, I hope you know that I am ALL about the VOLUME. All the food and more please! 😈
But seriously! This recipe makes 12 mini to normal size cookies. It takes me a good 30 minutes to snack on these usually, because I am savoring the mess out of them and usually taking sips of my coffee in between. Another bonus is that they are packed with protein, so they fill you up, and 100% satisfy your sweet tooth (and chocolate) cravings. 😛
For the protein power, I used Pescience Peanut Butter Cup which brought an awesome chocolate peanut butter flavor to the cookies. I will say that I haven’t tried other protein powders so I’m not sure on how the texture/flavor would turn out if subbing for a different brand.

These were really good! I used Reese’s peanut butter chips and they were divine! I will definitely make them again!
Question! I have a child who is a allergic to pumpkin, so is there a way to substitute it or… something? Bananas are also a no go.
How about unsweetened applesauce? I’ve used that for these cookies and they’re a great sub!
Just made these with my daughter. DELICIOUS!!!
Thank you Brook! So glad you and your daughter enjoyed them! 🙂
Super easy to make and delicious. We put peanut butter on top as a “frosting”. And the kids loved them, too! Kept them in the fridge for 3 days – they saved well until they were all gone.
Can these be frozen?
This recipe was delicious! I used white chocolate chips and made 6 bigger cookies instead of 12. Will definitely make these again!
Oh white chocolate chips , how yummy! So glad you loved them Nancy! 🙂
Is there a sub for the hello mix?
Hey Sav, I haven’t found a good sub for the jello pudding mix yet. It really helps bring flavor and keeps it moist. If you find a good sub that works, please let us all know!
