Ingredients
  1. 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour (or rice / buckwheat / gluten free – or I even use a mixture of part coconut, part wheat)….experiment with different combinations to create completely different cookies each time
  2. 2 cups protein powder (any flavour you like but my favourite to use Devine Creamy French Vanilla by RNC)
  3. 1 tsp baking powder
  4. 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  5. 1 ½ cups cottage cheese
  6. ½ cup honey
  7. ¼ cup canola oil
  8. 1 egg
  9. 2 tsp vanilla extract
  10. 1 cup rolled oats
  11. ½ -1 cup of dark chocolate (I go for the highest % cocoa chocolate I can fine – around 80% or 85%) broken into chunks
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180c
  2. Combine all ingredients (apart from the chocolate) and mix – I do by hand but you can use a mixer too
  3. Spoon onto a lined baking tray
  4. Bake for approx. 10 -12 minutes or until brown on top
Notes
  1. Approximately 99 calories per cookie if you make the smaller ones.
