- ¾ cups whole wheat or whole grain flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 stick softened butter
- 1/8 cup raisin or dried cranberry (optional)
- 3/8 cup white sugar
- 3/8 cup packed brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 2 scoops protein mix, milk chocolate flavor
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees (F).
In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and 2 scoops of protein powder.
In a separate bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Add in vanilla extract, and then beat in egg until incorporated. Slowly add in protein powder, followed by chocolate chips.
On 2 greased cookie sheets, form cookie dough into small balls (about an inch to 2 inches in diameter). You should end up with 8 cookies per cookie sheet.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until cookies start browning on edges. If you have them stacked, it’s a good idea to rotate cookie sheets halfway through for even baking.
Remove from cookie sheets and allow to cool on a cold surface or cooling rack. Allow cookies to stand for 10-15 minutes before serving. The recipe makes 16 cookies.
