Enjoy these six-ingredient flourless chocolate cranberry protein cookies as a post-workout treat or an anytime snack! Only 6 ingredients.


  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (use certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup chocolate protein powder (I used Vega Chocolate Protein + Greens)
  • 2-3 tbsp mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup fresh or frozen cranberries (I used frozen)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silipat.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add oats, almond meal, and protein powder, stirring to combine. It may seem dry, but keep mixing! Fold in chocolate chips and cranberries.
  3. Using wet hands, roll dough into about 14 balls. Place about 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Lightly flatten with hands.
  4. Bake for about 13 minutes, or until set. Allow cookies to cool for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
