Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

Image
I have long been looking for a protein cookie recipe that tastes as good out of the oven as some fresh baked nestle tollhouse cookies. 
I still haven't found them yet. 
But these are pretty good after they sit in the fridge for the night!  At around 80 calories per cookie, low sugar, and 8 grams of protein they hit the spot when I am craving sweets at night.

 Recipe:
1.5 cups of 1 minute Oatmeal
6 egg whites
4 scoops of Muscle Pharm Chocolate Milk Protein Powder
6 Tbs of Nestle Tollhouse Semi Sweet Morsels
1/4-1/2 cup of Silk Original Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 Cup of Bell Plantation PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
1/2 Tsp of Vanilla
1/2 Tsp of Baking Soda

Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 350 for 8-9 minutes
Yield 21 Cookies
Per Serving:
Calories: 80
Carbs 8 grams
Fat 2 grams
Protein 8 grams
Sugar 3 grams
