Well, when you eat cookies and sweets for 30+ years. It is darn hard to cut those babies out cold turkey. We have tried numerous times and failed miserably each time.
So this pin is floating around Pintrest.

So, I go and look at the recipe. Being the daughter of a chef, I don't necessarily follow recipes well. I like to improvise and make them my own. I am not afraid of the "what if it doesn't turn out" like I used to be. My thought now is if it turns out horrible from my doctoring I can do two things 1. follow the recipe next time or 2. realize that I was not meant to put that into my body in the first place. (I tend to lean more toward the latter.)
Anyway, I digress.
These cookies seemed simple enough, I had most of the ingredients and I could doctor where I was missing things like ... oh chocolate chips. HAHA, no not important for chocolate chip cookie dough HAHA
This is what I turned out.
So nothing like what you see in the Pintrest picture. That is because these cookies are pinspired. So I halved the basic recipe from the Pinspired cookies. I added chocolate protein powder and used half regular flour and half oat flour (old fashioned oatmeal ground into flour using the magic bullet.)
I mixed up a glaze with protein powder, powdered sugar and milk. And covered them with ground almonds.
Well, I tasted them and hated them. I tried baking them for 12 minutes at 350. I didn't think it helped all that much, but Keith loved them!
Let me know if you want the exact recipe for what I did. I can send it to you.
