Bring out your inner Hulk with these high-protein, low-carb, gluten-free cookies in the shape of a Hulk SMASH fist! Hulk SMASH Protein Cookies!

I recently made these delicious green Superfood Protein Cookies with Oriya Organics protein powder. When I came across this Hulk cookie cutter on Amazon, I knew I had to take out the green protein again and make these Hulk SMASH Protein Cookies!

I have always been a fan of everything Hulk. (And Wonder Woman.) I loved the Incredible Hulk television show as a kid, and I love to give Hulk SMASH hands as gifts. Earlier this year I was able to meet the Incredible Hulk himself, Lou Ferrigno, at the Europa Games in Orlando. Look how excited I was! :)

I used a mix of the Superfood Protein and Jamie Eason’s vanilla whey here. The green protein does taste a bit green, like a green juice. Unless you absolutely hate that taste, I think you’ll find these delicious! Especially with the coconut butter. Yum! And they can certainly be made vegan by replacing the whey with vanilla rice or pea protein, and the egg whites with flax eggs.

And with the holidays coming up, this cookie dough would make great Christmas tree cookies!

Enjoy!

**Jamie Eason’s vanilla whey is great for baking! You can get a free shaker or free sling bag with a purchase of $50 or more with code SHAKEITUP or BAGITUP at Labrada.com!

Notes
A note about substitutions: For dairy-free or vegan versions, replace the whey with vanilla rice or pea protein, and the egg whites with a flax egg. I wouldn't recommend using all whey protein in this recipe. See my Recipe Basics video for what happens when you use the wrong kind of protein powder in a recipe. Texturally, other nut butters would work here, but they may affect the color of the cookies.

Also, you can get your eggs to room temperature more quickly by placing them in a bowl of warm water.
