Protein Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Cookies

My hubby has been asking for a treat. A treat that still stays within the realms of clean eating but one that would also satisfy that sweet tooth so who am I to deprive him ;)

I tried something new and tested a protein cookie.

Protein Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Cookies

1 cup gluten free oats
1 cup brown rice flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 scoop vanilla gluten free protein powder
1/4 cup stevia (optional)
1/4 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
6 tbsp coconut oil (melt to liquid form)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 whole egg or 1/2 cup egg whites

-Preheat oven to 350
-In one bowl mix dry ingredients together and in a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients
-Combine both wet and dry mixtures and stir well
-Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet
-Bake 8-10 minutes or until firm and lightly colored
-Store in the fridge or freeze

Tip-- if you freeze them they can be removed as you are craving a treat and heated in the microwave for 30-60 seconds :)

My hubby is in heaven!!

Until next time,
