3 Reasons Why You’ll Love This Macro Friendly Cookie Dough Oatmeal Recipe

  1. Delicious Taste with a Guilt-Free Twist: Cookie dough is usually reserved for special occasions due to the high calorie and fat content, however, we lightened our “cookie dough” topping up and placed it on top of a heart-healthy bowl of oatmeal to deliver just enough sweetness and nutrition to keep you feeling full and satisfied.
  2. High Protein Content: Oatmeal alone is a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrates,  but it doesn’t usually carry much protein. This oatmeal recipe, however, really beefs up the protein content by adding in a scoop of protein powder. As a bonus, it also adds a ton more flavor to the oats!
  3. Customizable and Versatile: High Protein Cookie Dough Oatmeal is highly customizable. You can easily adjust the sweetness, texture, and flavors to suit your preferences. Want to get creative with the toppings? Simply add in coconut flakes, nuts, nut butter, sprinkles, and more.

  • 1 Small saucepan
  • Rubber spatulas or spoons
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • 1 Small Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Serving bowl or platter


For the oatmeal:

  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup (for sweetness)
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt

For the cookie dough topping:

  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla)
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips (dark chocolate for a healthier option)
  • 1 tbsp almond flour (or oat flour for a nut-free version)
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup (for sweetness)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


  • In a saucepan, combine the oats, almond milk, protein powder, peanut butter, sugar-free maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix well.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens and the oats are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  • While the oatmeal is cooking, prepare the cookie dough topping. In a small bowl, mix together the Greek yogurt, chocolate chips, almond flour (or oat flour), sugar-free maple syrup, and vanilla extract. This will create a creamy, cookie dough-like consistency.
  • Once the oatmeal is ready, remove it from the heat and transfer it to a serving bowl.
  • Dollop the cookie dough mixture on top of the oatmeal.
  • Optionally, you can sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top for added texture and flavor.
  • Enjoy your Protein Cookie Dough Oatmeal immediately while it's warm and creamy.


When making this High Protein Cookie Dough Oatmeal, here are three quick tips to ensure a smooth and delicious experience:
Choose the Right Oats for your preferences and dietary needs: Use rolled oats or old-fashioned oats for a creamy texture. Steel-cut oats can work too, but they'll have a chewier consistency.
Protein powder: choose a protein powder that you enjoy and aligns with your dietary needs.
Sweetener: Adjust the sweetness to your liking. You can use honey, maple syrup, or healthier alternatives like mashed ripe banana, stevia, or dates.
Flavorings: Experiment with other extracts or spices like cinnamon or nutmeg to customize the taste experience.
Liquid: Use your choice of milk or milk alternative (e.g., almond milk, soy milk, or oat milk). Adjust the amount to achieve your preferred thickness.
