Maggie’s Granola Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies
1.5 cups rolled oats, dry, uncooked (Old fashioned, not quick oats)
.5 cup Fiber One
3/4 cup Harris Teeter Trail Mix*
1/4 cup Chips, chocolate, semisweet, large
4 scoops Cytosport Cookie’s N’ Cream protein powder
1/2 tsp Salt, table, 1/5 oz per teaspoon
1/4 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar free Maple Syrup
In a large bowl combine the oats, trail mix, chocolate chips, and whey. Add the syrup, vanilla, and salt. Stir until everything is thoroughly mixed. At first, it will seem too dry, but continue stirring and it will eventually blend.
Spray two non-stick 12-compartment muffin tins with cooking spray, then press the mixture into the bottom of each cup firmly. Alternately, spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray, then drop 24 equal blobs of the mixture onto the sheet, squashing each down slightly into a cookie-like thickness.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 6 minutes.
