These Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies will help you stay on track with your weight loss goals AND enjoy some yummy Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies too!
2 C Old Fashioned Oats 1/4 tsp Salt 8 scoops of protein powder 1 tsp Baking soda 3T Butter (DF Earth Balance) 9T Unsweetened Applesauce 2 tsp Vanilla extract 1 Egg white 1/4 C Sugar 1/4 cup Chocolate Mini Chips (DF Enjoy Life Brand)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line pan with parchment paper. Grind oats in blender until it looks like flour. Add oats to a large bowl then mix in protein powder, salt and baking soda. Cream butter and sugar in mixer. Mix well. Add egg and vanilla and mix. Add dry ingredient to the wet ingredient and mix. Stir in chocolate chips. Shape into balls and flatten out on parchment paper. They don’t spread so they can be close together. I made these cookies fairly large and baked them for about 20-25 minutes (checking on them every 5 minutes after the 10 minute mark). If you make them smaller, bake for 8-10 minutes or until start to get golden brown on edges. Cool for 10-15 minutes on cookie rack. DO NOT EAT THESE RIGHT AWAY! Once cool, individually wrap in wax paper and place in container. Eat them the next day for a moist yummy cookie! Makes 8 cookies. One cookie is a serving. These will last in container on counter for about 7 days.
