I found the best consistency with the ingredients below, i.e. whey protein and coconut sugar. The whey protein helps to hold the dough together, and the coconut sugar adds a softness to the texture. But you can sub pea protein or casein, if you prefer. In that case, I’d suggest using a sticky sweetener like honey or agave to keep it from becoming too dry and crumbly. With whey protein you could also use dry natural sweeteners, if you prefer, like stevia, erythritol, or monk fruit.

A note about substitutions: other types of protein would work well in this recipe, like pea protein (or a pea blend) and casein protein. In those cases I would suggest using a sticky liquid sweetener like honey or agave.
