Gimme Cookie!

Posted on 18 Oct 2010 by maisha (posted in: blogs)

My fridge is so empty, it's heartbreaking! The only consolation is that it's for a good cause. Still, it made me sad to see two lonely cups of cottage cheese surrounded by a vast expanse of empty space. I decided to end their misery and put them to use in a protein breakfast/snack cookie. They like it there!



Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookie (makes 9 large cookies or 18 smaller ones)
Ingredients



  • 113 grams whole wheat spelt flour (or any other kind of whole wheat flour)
  • 91 grams whey protein powder (chocolate or vanilla flavors work best)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda + 1/4 tsp cream of tartar (or 1/2 tsp baking powder)
  • 46 grams rolled oats
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 400 grams low-fat cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 30 grams pecans, chopped
  • 3 squares of dark (at least 70%) chocolate, chopped into smaller chips



Method


  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients together in a bowl and mix with a fork.
  2. In a seperate bowl, combine the next 4 ingredients and whisk together with a fork or an electric mixer.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix with a fork. Mix in the chocolate chips and pecans.
  4. Drop mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Be sure to leave adequate space between the cookies as they will 'spread' during baking. Bake until the cookies are browned and firm.



These cookies are best eaten as a morning or preworkout snack. Each cookie (when making 9 large ones) contains approximately 200-250 calories and 14 grams of protein.
