High Protein Cookies http://www.davita.com/recipes/desserts/high-protein-cookies/a/7595

Is it possible for a snack food to be tasty plus good-for-you, too? How about a cookie that does double-duty and provides high protein? If anyone can find answers to these questions, it’s our intrepid DaVita dietitians. Amy from Texas took on a problem and turned it into a solution with her recipe for High-Protein Cookies. By combining oatmeal, margarine and protein powder, Amy took the cholesterol out and put protein “the body builder of nutrition” in. Amy even provided a clever option for choosing the texture of the batch: If you like soft cookies, add baking powder. If a satisfying crunch is more to your liking, leave baking powder out. Either way, they’re great cookies, especially if you want to boost your protein intake!
