5 g


13 g


5 g




  • 50g Ascent Vanilla Whey Protein (the vanilla protein takes on a white chocolate flavor when baked, which is why I named them white chocolate cookies!)
  • 200g Peanut butter
  • 200g Brown sugar
  • 50g Egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. Baking powder



A good macro friendly recipe isn’t defined by having 0 g of macros. It’s more about finding classic recipes with a reasonable balance of macros or calories that you can work into your life seamlessly.

Make these cookies, pack 1-2 into your bag or for your dessert and enjoy a cookie a day without eating all your macros away!

There are a few good reasons to have these cookies up your recipe sleeve:

  1. When you’re in the mood for some baking but you know that whatever you make will be a disaster for your macros, these will fit and store in an airtight container.
  2. They’re gluten free!
  3. It’s only 10 minutes of preparation, 1 bowl, 1 tray, 1 spoon and your scale.
  4. They are lower fat and carbs and higher protein than most other cookies.
  5. They contain 5 very basic ingredients.
  6. You can play with the ratios of the ingredients from 50 g more or less of protein powder, peanut butter or brown sugar and you can add chocolate chips if you want! You may get a slightly different consistency but they will still work.

Let’s get started!

This recipe makes 18 cookies


  1. Pre-heat oven to 320 f/160 c and line a flat baking tray with baking or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add all ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  3. Roll the dough into small balls. This recipe makes 18 cookies and you can roll them smaller or larger - just make sure to adjust macros as necessary.
  4. Spread the cookie dough out onto the pan and use a fork to gently press the tops of the cookies down about half way.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes!
