Cookies and Cream Oatmeal Cookies



Since the previous Peanut Butter Quest Bar Cookies I made were such a hit, I thought I should get creative with the Cookies and Cream flavour. These might be hands down the best "healthy" cookie I have ever made! No kidding - it took major self control once these bad boys came out of the oven! Taste aside, they are made with wholesome ingredients and packed with protein and fibre. 

Ingredients

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup oats
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 scoop protein powder (I used BSN Lean Dessert in Whipped Vanilla)
1 Tbsp pure vanilla
1 egg
1 egg white
2 Tbsp honey or agave nectar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cookies and cream Quest bar cut into small pieces
2 Tbsp dark chocolate mini chips 

*If you wanted to omit the Quest bar, you could also add walnuts, extra chocolate chips, cranberries, etc. 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking stone/tray with parchment paper. 
2. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, oats, and protein powder.
3. In a small bowl stir vanilla, egg, egg white, honey OR agave nectar
4. Add wet ingredients into the dry and mix. 
5. Gently stir in Quest pieces and chocolate chips. 
6. Drop cookie dough by spoonfuls onto parchment paper and with a fork slightly flatten each cookie.
    You should get 15 cookies. 
7. Bake for 10 minutes, or until slightly browned. Let cool...EAT!
