I found this recipe in an old issue of Oxygen Magazine (September 2010). My cookies didn’t turn out as beautiful as in the magazine. Maybe because I didn’t follow the recipe…at all!… :) But they were still really comforting to eat after a brutal bootcamp work-out :)
The ingredients in the recipe were:
– 1.5 cups whole wheat flour (I put a mix of different flours – quinoa flour, soy flour, and regular whole wheat flour)
– 2 cups whey protein powder (I put a bit less, 1.5 cup because hey, whey protein powder is not that cheap!)
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 2 teaspoons cinnamon
– 1.5 cups low-fat small-curd cottage cheese (didn’t have small-curd cottage cheese, I put regular cottage cheese)
– 1/2 cup honey (I put 1/4 cup of agave nectar)
– 1/4 cup canola oil (I didn’t put oil at all but a cup of unsweetened apple sauce)
– 1 egg (I put 3 to compensate not enough protein powder)
– 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (didn’t have it on hand)
– 1 cup rolled oats
– 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I didn’t have chocolate chips so I took a chocolate bar and cut it in chunks)
– 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (I didn’t have walnuts, I put an old banana instead)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Combine dry ingredients together, wet ingredients together, mix dry and wet ingredients together, add chocolate and banana (or walnut) pieces.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes until the cookies are slightly brown on top.
Nutrition facts per serving: 99 calories, 3 g of fats, 11 g of carbs, 5 g of sugars, 7 g of protein. But it was written in the magazine that the recipe makes 38 servings! Which means their cookies are actually super small!
And here are my cookies, huge (they must be like 300 kcal each!) and slightly too brown on top:
They look totally different than in the magazine, but then again, I gave my own twist to the recipe! I’m not too disappointed!
