Healthy Protein Packed Cookies

These are gluten free and could be eaten for breakfast as well as a snack. I added protein powder to my last batch and they still tasted the same. I will continue adding it so they fill you up. You can have two for breakfast or a snack. Great for your kids during tournaments.

I have been making them almost every other day. Everyone loves them and they are much better for you than a regular cookie.

Size: 16 cookies

Ingredients:
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup melted coconut oil-when I made it the first time I forgot this and thought it was better without
1 large egg
⅓ cup raw honey
1 cup uncooked oats
1 cup oat, gluten free or whole wheat flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cups dark chocolate chips-I chop up 72 or 85% dark chocolate from Trader Joe's
2 scoops of chocolate or vanilla protein powder-I use biotrust

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, add the applesauce, coconut oil, egg, vanilla, and honey, and mix to combine well. As I said earlier. I forgot to add the coconut oil and I thought they were better without it.
  2. Add the oats, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir to combine well. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  3. Refrigerate the dough for 10 minutes (this give the oats a little time to absorb some of the liquid).
  4. Use a cookie scoop or two spoons to place a rounded tablespoon of dough on a parchment or baking mat-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes, until the edges of the cookies, are lightly browned and the center is set. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheet for 5 minutes.
    note: I just put the whole oats in my blender to make oat flour.
