Protein Sugar Cookies

Pastels are in! Decorated in buttery yellow, blueberry and purple, these protein cookies are right on trend for the new season. But forget the food coloring and sugary, store-bought frosting. You’ll tint batches of DIY cookie topping with an ingredient that will earn you the golden egg — or at least a gold star for creativity.

Pastel-Frosted Protein Cookies

You could use any kind of flour you like, but coconut flour really amplifies the taste factor.


Protein Sugar Cookies

2 cups coconut flour
2 scoops protein (I used Metabolic Nutrition’s Protizyme Vanilla Cake)
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
2/3 cups coconut sugar
3 eggs
½ cup melted coconut oil
½ cup unsweetened almond milk (adjust if necessary)
Pinch of salt

Frosting: You could use traditional food coloring and the store-bought stuff, but why not up the protein factor? Mix 1 scoop protein powder with unsweetened almond milk, adding milk just a tablespoon at a time. To increase frosting, just keep adding protein powder and almond milk as needed.

Red frosting: Red velvet whey protein
Yellow frosting: Vanilla cake whey protein or banana cream
Purple frosting: Vanilla cake whey protein with purple sprinkles on top
Blue frosting: Blueberries and cream casein


  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  2. Form batter into balls and place on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Bake at 325 F for 8-10 minutes, or until undersides are golden.
  4. Cool completely before frosting.
