No Bake Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

I couldn’t complete my run of pumpkin madness recipes without a protein cookie, now could I?  These cookies take no time at all, and are stored in the fridge for grab-n-go.  If you like cookie dough, you will love these!  You could also add some other things to these if you like….chia seeds, flax seeds, additional spices or even raisins!

No Bake Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

Makes 18 cookies


1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or almond butter or nut-free alternative like Sunbutter)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin
1/4 cup honey or agave (could also use stevia or another substitute, to taste)
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup quick oats
3 scoops or 3/4 cup vanilla protein (I used Whey Gourmet)
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Stevia (to taste if needed)


In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, pumpkin, honey & pumpkin pie spice. Once combined, stir in protein powder, oats and chocolate chips. Dough will be sticky.  Refrigerate dough until easier to handle (about 20 minutes).  Roll dough into balls then press between your hands to make a cookie shape.  Keep stored in a container in the fridge.

    What an awesome recipe! I love how few ingredients there are. Less it more, like they always say. And you just proved it. YUM! 😀

    Do you cook the oats first or use them straight out of the box?

    • Kristine Fretwell

      Straight out of the box 🙂

    Can I substitute extra oats in place of the protien, which is what you’ve done in other recipes?

    • Kristine Fretwell

      Yes, that should work fine!
