As much as I love eating healthy and working on my fitness...I love cookies MORE.
Cookies are a treat. A sweet indulgence. A reason to smile. A reward. An incentive.
Cookies can also be a regret. A guilty memory. A reason to exercise. A sugar crash. An error.
What if we could get the best of both worlds? Enjoyment + No Guilt
You see, there’s simply no reason to entertain antiquated cookies that contain only empty, sugary calories — cookies made with wheat flour, refined sugar, butter and milk chocolate. Especially when it’s so easy to swap out those empty calories and harmful components with ingredients that offer both nutrition and flavor.
And PROTEIN! Why not add muscle supporting protein powder?
Unfortunately, MOST healthy-protein cookie recipes are dry, crumbly, tasteless and NOT like real cookies. But you know me better than that – if the taste doesn’t give me a blissful pause then I’m not eating it and I’m certainly not sharing it. So rest assured that these Protein Oreo Cookies deliver BOTH flavor and consistency that will have you coming back for more.
How did I do it? It’s all in the ingredients.
1) QUALITY PROTEIN POWDER. This makes a huge difference in both the flavor and consistency of your cookies. I ONLY use TRULEAN’S Premium, High-Quality Protein Powder in my recipes to produce the very best results.
2) AVOCADO! Yep, you read that right! These cookies have a full cup of mashed avocado which gives a boost of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also contain lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids and healthy fat. BUT more importantly, the avocado gives these cookies a light, moist consistency that is RARE for protein cookies.
3) ROLLED OATS. The high fiber flour used is rolled oats that are simply pulsed in a food processor or blender until roughly chopped. We aren’t using too much, in order to keep ’em moist and light rather than dense and dry.
I hope you give these AMAZING cookies a try! Let me know what you think!
