As the weather finally starts to get warmer around here, I find myself thinking of all things tropical! I love how the Vitamin Shoppe‘s True Athlete vanilla whey pairs with coconut, and I knew the two would be great together in these Coconut Cream Protein Cookies!

The recipe is quite simple, and the cookies have great flavor and texture! It is also a quick recipe, since we are using whey protein. Whey cookies tend to bake in about 5 minutes! Overbaking can cause them to be dry and rubbery, so it is important to take the cookies out of the oven as soon as they are firm.

If you are ready for some tropical protein cookies, give these Coconut Cream Protein Cookies a try!

Notes
A note about substitutions: This recipe should also work with rice or pea protein (or pea blends), but I would reduce the amount to ¼ cup and omit the coconut flour. The bake time will likely be much longer (like my Peanut Butter Protein Cookies). Also the flavor will be different, as vegan proteins aren't as creamy as whey proteins.
Also, be sure to use coconut butter, not coconut oil. The difference is like the difference between peanut butter and peanut oil.
