I really enjoyed the vanilla protein powder in this recipe because it adds flavor AND extra protein to the recipe! So if you don’t have vanilla protein powder, you can sub in oat flour or more almond flour. I would also add a tablespoon more maple syrup to account for the change of flavor as well.

  • Extra Large Baking Sheet
  • cookie scooper
  • mini food processor


  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 2 tbs coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

US Customary – Metric


  • Preheat your oven to 350℉ Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small food processor or blender, add the cottage cheese, maple syrup and vanilla – pulse until smooth. Transfer that mixture to a large bowl and mix with the almond flour, protein powder and coconut oil until combined. Lastly fold in the chocolate chips. Best to use a cookie scooper to form. your balls. Place them on the baking sheet and press down to flatten. Add some more chocolate to the tops (if you like) and bake until the edges are golden brown – about 13-15 minutes. Allow them to set on the baking sheet for a few minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.


I use 4 % milk fat cottage cheese – the brand is Organic Valley.
If you don’t have vanilla protein powder, you can sub in oat flour (or more almond flour and a few tbs coconut flour).
You can use any neutral oil, like avocado oil or olive oil instead of the coconut oil.
