High Protein Oreo Cookie Butter

One of the most common questions or recipe requests I receive has to be about how to make healthy cookie butter. If you’re unfamiliar with cookie butter, it’s essentially cookie crumbs mixed with some type of fat and liquid until it can be spread like a nut butter. Because the world we live in is a beautiful place, people have created all kinds of cookie butter with different ingredients.

With this being a healthier recipe blog, I was tasked with creating a lower calorie cookie butter. As you can see, my choice of cookie was arguably the greatest cookie of all time—the Oreo. And in my opinion, the recipe was a major hit.

In terms of nutrition facts, this low calorie Oreo cookie butter has 58 calories, 3.7 grams of protein, 4.5 grams of carbs, and 2.8 grams of fat per tablespoon. Compare that to the 90-100 calories per tablespoon in something like peanut butter, and we’ve got a winner.

Ingredients for Healthy Cookie Butter

Before I get to the recipe, I’d like to cover a few potential ingredient swaps.

Oreo O’s Cereal

I chose to use O’s cereal over real Oreos since they don’t have the creamy filling which reduces the amount you can use without adding fat and calories. Also, I can’t keep Oreos in the house without eating the entire package. You could swap O’s cereal for just about any cereal you’d like and turn this Oreo cookie butter into something entirely different.

Peanut Butter

You could swap this for just about any other nut butter or fat source, but you may have to adjust the amount of liquid accordingly. Almond butter, for example, may take a bit more liquid to avoid a dry cookie butter.

Protein Powder

For my recipes, I always use a whey concentrate or blend of whey. I prefer Optimum Nutrition’s Gold Standard Whey or Dymatize’s Whey. However, you can use any protein you like.

Fat-Free Evaporated Milk

Any liquid will do, but I’ve found fat-free evaporated milk to give the best flavor and consistency. It’s what I use for my ultimate protein frostings, and there’s a noticeable difference between using something like almond milk and the evaporated milk in those. Try it for yourself.

This is delicious! Very easy to make. I added a bit more liquid because I like it better a little creamier.

I made this tonight after picking up a roll of chocolate Goya Maria cookies that I honestly had no idea what I was going to use them for. I made a few changes to the recipe and I think it turned out great! Tasted amazing! Changes: 2 servings (60g) of chocolate Goya cookies instead of Oreo Os 1/4 cup peanut powder 2 tbsp peanut butter 1/2 cup almond milk 1.5 ish servings of cookies and cream protein powder 1 packet of stevia 1 tsp each cocoa and Dutch process cocoa

I almost wish I had never found this because it is SO GOOD that I can't stop myself. I have made it both with PEScience Gourmet Vanilla and Bowmar Nutrition Protein Frosted Cookie and both came out perfectly. My favorite way to eat this was heaped on top of Edy's Slow Churned Cookies & Cream ice cream (or by the spoonful)
