Protein Packed Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Posted on November 19th, 2015 by admin

Chocolate chip cookies are at the top of my favorite sweets and treats…I needed to try and make a fix for this that was a healthier alternative to what I find in stores, restaurants, etc. for when the craving came knocking at my door.

I went into my science lab (some people call it a “kitchen”) and went for it. The result? Protein packed goodness that will leave you feeling super satisfied after one – I kid you not!

What you need:
1 pack of chocolate chip cookie mix
1/2 cup applesauce (use this instead of the 1 stick of butter)
2 teaspoons of water
1/4 cup egg beater (use this instead of the 1 egg)
2 scoops protein powder of your choice (I use one that is 90 calories for a scoop and 17g protein)

Set the oven to bake and 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and mix everything into a bowl. Next, scoop out cookies evenly on your baking sheet and pop them into the oven. Watch them until they start turning light brown and take them out to cool. I kept them in the oven for about 15 minutes.

I ended up with 20 cookies!

Cookie Math –
Normal Cookies: 195 calories each, My Version: 140 calories each, 3 grams protein

30% reduction in calories for each cookie and 300% increase in protein.

They taste awesome!! How do you say, “NO”? Must, must, must TRY!
