So my experimental baking went well yesterday. I heart these. They make a great grab and go breakfast or snack. No added sugar, lower in cals and fats than most protein bars and bonus... the kitchen smells yummy when you bake 'em. Going to try a chocolate protein powder version today. Will let you know...
Shelly's Oatmeal Cookies
3/4 cup Spelt Flour
1/2 cup Oats
1/2 cup Unsweetened Coconut
1/2 cup Vanilla Protein Powder
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 cup Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used Caramel - on sale now)
1 Egg, beaten
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
dash of Salt
1/4 cup Nuts, chopped (I used Walnuts)
1/4 cup Dried Fruit (I used Raisins and Dried Cranberries)
Preheat oven to 325. Mix all ingredients together till well combined.
Scoop with a small ice cream scoop onto a non-stick cookie sheet. Pat down slightly. They don't spread.
Bake at 325 for 9 minutes exactly. Remove from tray and cool on a wire rack. Makes 24.
Soooo when Santa & his reindeer crew stop by the Eggface household on December 24th these are what I will leaving for their snack... 'cause we all know the Big Red Guy could use a little less belly fat ;)
