I wanted to develop a quick, high nutrient, HIGH PROTEIN and whole grain breakfast cookie for those busy mornings ... note this isn't a diet item, but more of a trying to eat something to stick with me on days I really don't feel like eating / don't have time.
Cream together until much lighter in color:
1 pound (2 cups) Jif creamy peanut butter
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
add: 5 large eggs, mix well
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup whey protein powder (unsweetened)
When well mixed, add:
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chip cookies
1 cup peanut butter chips
Scoop with a one ounce (2 Tbsp) scoop onto parchment paper - I put 8-9 each on a half sheet pan, but apparently they could have been spaced a bit closer. Bake at 35- for about 12 minutes.
I got 52 cookies with the one ounce scoop - nutrition info per cookie: 165 calories, 9g fat, 8g protein, 16 g carbs, 2g fiber
