These no-bake Chocolate Almond Protein Cookies are the bomb. Not only do they taste amazing, but they're also vegan, gluten-free, low sugar, and infused with No Cow's chocolate plant-based protein powder for added protein! They are a perfect option for when you want to satisfy your sweet tooth, but don't want to commit to all the extra added sugars in other desserts.


  • 3 dates + 1/4 cup of warm water (soaked for at least 10 minutes)
  • 1 scoop of No Cow Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 2 tbsp of almond butter
  • 2 tbsp of coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce
  • dry roasted unsalted almonds, for topping


  1. Place a piece of parchment paper on a plate and set aside
  2. In a food processor, combine dates (with water), protein powder, almond butter and cocoa. Blend until fully combined and the mixture has a crumbly texture.
  3. Place mixture into a bowl and stir in applesauce and coconut flour. Mix until the dough is thick.
  4. Divide the dough in half and then into fourths. You should have 8 small sections.
  5. Next, use your hands to roll each section into a ball and then press down onto prepared plate to form a small, flat cookie. Repeat with remaining dough.
  6. Place an almond in the center of each cookie. Store in the fridge!

Come to think of it, this product is different. All other powder canisters are made of plastic, and are only partially recyclable. That also means they're still partially harmful on the environment.


An estimated 75% of all aluminum ever produced in the US is still in use today. On the other hand, only about 9% of all plastics ever made have been recycled. Our revolutionary aluminum canister design makes it the only 100% recyclable protein powder in the market. Scoop and all. Making steps towards a more sustainable future.
