Oatmeal Protein Cookies

Now onto the good stuff. Who doesn't like a good cookies? What about a PROTEIN cookie? Yes, I know your thrilled to hear about these, thinking yup, they taste awful, but these I have found taste pretty good and help my cookie cravings as well as my small gaps of hunger in between work or whatever else I am doing. I normally load up a container or a sandwich bag for the day, so I am never without some sort of snack. I adapted the recipe from Fit Over Fat
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup chocolate whey protein powder
1 c Splenda granular
1/4 Salt
½ T baking soda
1 T baking powder
4 T unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c milled flaxseed
1/2 cup raisins
½ c egg substitute
5 oz plain Greek Yogurt--I used whatever I had, blueberry/greek mix worked fine.
1 T olive oil
2 T water
Cook for 8 - 10 minutes at 375. I try to make them a little smaller, so make 2 batches and it equals out to around 50ish cookies. Normally they last me 2-3 weeks of happy snacking. I have to keep them away from friends, or they will go missing within a few hours.
