¼ cup brown sugar or Stevia in the Raw
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
2/3 cup Almond meal
1 cup white flour
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Using 1 oz cookie scoop, scoop cookies onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 18-20 min. Let cool for 2 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. Makes about 28 (1oz) cookies.

Nutrition info: (with brown sugar) per cookie 70 cal, 8.9 grams carbs, 2.4 grams protein, 3.1 grams sugar
(with Stevia) per cookie 69 cal, 8.6 grams carbs, 2.4 grams protein, 2.8 grams sugar
Note: I made my cookies with 1/3 cup white flour (rather than 1 cup) because I liked the texture better. Obviously, the calorie, carb, and protein count will go down a bit. They are good and healthy either way. Rather than incorporating butter and cream cheese, I used applesauce and fat free sour cream and I think they taste great….and so does my picky husband.
