If you've never baked your Quest bar into cookies, you have been missing out! This is a simple, quick way to enjoy the flavor of your favorite Quest bars as cookies!
These make a great, quick, high protein snack. Great for when you're on-the-go, as they store and travel well. I often bake up several bars at a time so they are always ready to go!
If you like this recipe, take the idea up a notch with these Easy Linzer Cookies made with a White Chocolate Raspberry Quest Bar, or these easy Ice Cream Sandwiches. And if you bake half a quest bar into a silicone muffin mold, you can make these Coconut Pineapple Tartlets or these Double Chocolate Pumpkin Pies.
All you need is a regular Quest bar (not one with coating), or a protein bar made with similar ingredients (store brands are fine!).
Preheat your oven to 325F (160C).
Cut your quest bar into 8 pieces:
Separate the pieces on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake for a few minutes until the pieces puff up:
Flatten the cookies:
Let cool, and enjoy!
There's a video in the recipe card below!
Protein bars with similar ingredients to Quest bars can also be baked the same way. But don't choose the coated protein bars, as the coating will be a big melted mess!
You'll need an oven (or toaster oven), a cookie sheet or some kind of baking pan, and I suggest using parchment paper to keep the cookies from sticking (and for easy clean up). If you don't have a mini serving spatula, you can just use the bottom of a drinking glass to flatten the cookies.
These store well in airtight containers or ziplock bags. If you'll eat them within a couple of days, no need to refrigerate. For longer storage, I'd keep them in the fridge.
⚡️ Meal prep tip
Bake up several bars at a time for snack prep! Store them 8 pieces per ziplock bag or small container for easy grab-and-go meal replacements.

Go to their webpage for the protein bars (here). When you scroll over each bar, the naturally sweetened ones say "Sweetened with Stevia Extract and Erythritol." The others have sucralose.
I like to use date sugar or coconut sugar. For a natural no-calorie sweetener, I like stevia (this one from the Vitamin Shoppe, some others are bitter), and erythritol.
Hope that helps! And thanks for writing in! :)
Can you please give more info on which ones have the sucralose? Also when you bake what kind or brand sugar do you typically recommend that is healthy and natural.
Within a day or so I think they'll be good. I would wrap them in parchment and then in a plastic bag (so they don't stick to the bag). I've also kept them several days only in parchment and then they are perfect for dunking in coffee! :)

I'm wanting to bake these and take them out with me for a snack tomorrow, will they stay good or will they go too hard?
:) I haven't tried making cookies from the Cookies and Cream bar yet. I must soon! Thanks for writing in!
I just made these with the cookies and cream bar and they are excellent! Please no one make the mistake I did, wax paper and parchment paper are not the same! Follow the recipe!
Hi, I think Quest reduces the calorie count because of the high fiber content. But I calculated the standard 9*(grams of fat) + 4*(grams of carbs) + 4*(grams of protein). Hope that helps to clarify!
If you've only used quest cookie dough bar which is originally 190 calories, why does the nutrition you've provided is 240 calories?
