Protein cookie with oats and granola
Make delicious oat granola cookies in less than 10 minutes! The best part, they are high in protein!
This recipe uses unsweetened applesauce as a substitute for butter or oil. Unsweetened applesauce is a great way to add sweet flavor while controlling the amount of calories you are adding to the recipe. The amount of flour in the recipe was reduced with the protein powder used as a substitute. Protein powder adds a level of nutrition, keeping the level of carbohydrates low. Keep in mind that the protein powder can "dry" your cookies. Incorporate more apple or coconut oil to add moisture to your cookies.
Recipe for 8 cookies
- 2 cups of uncooked old-fashioned oatmeal (NOT instant)
- 2 scoops MRM Whey Protein Rich Vanilla protein
- 1/4 cup of wheat flour. Substitute: oatmeal; sorghum flour; fine almond flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 4 oz (123 g) unsweetened apple
- 1/2 cup of almond butter. Sub: peanut butter; cashew butter
- 1 tablespoon of raw honey
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract *
- 1/4 dried fruit *
- 3 tablespoons dark chocolate (sweetened with Stevia to keep calories low)
- * means optional ingredients.
Heat the oven to 350F. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Shoot any dried fruit or dark chocolate and mix.
Divide the dough evenly with a spoon or scoop of ice cream on a baking sheet lined with parchment or silpat, then mix gently in each circle, since the cookies will not rise too high in the oven. Bake for a maximum of 8 minutes and let cool on a towel or cooling rack. They will harden as they cool.
