Sil's Homemade Protein Cookies
Here is the basic recipe:
1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup eggbeaters
1/2 cup cottage cheese (I use fat free)
2 Tbs soy protein powder (no carbs)
1-2 tsp cinnamon (or more to taste)
1/2 capful vanilla (or to taste)
2-3 packets Equal (or equivalent of Splenda) to taste
Mix all dry ingredients together. Then add remainder of ingredients to bowl and mix together. It will be like a thick cake batter consistency. Drop by spoonfuls onto hot skillet that has been sprayed with Butter flavor Pam by dividing into 7-8 cookies. Cook as you would a pancake: when bottom turns golden ,gently flip over to cook the other side.
*other variations: add chopped apples to the mix or place a few blueberries onto each cookie while cooking (before you flip over). These are great warm, but also good cold.
*You can add more eggbeaters to make pancakes, if you wish.
* Omit the cinnamon and vanilla and add some natural coccoa powder.
*I usually double or triple the batch and have them on hand for a quick meal.(usually eat 4 cookies for a meal)
