Guilt-Free Treats: Stoked Oats Oatmeal Cookies

We’ve all been there before; the sweeping declarations to not indulge your sweet tooth in the name of better eating. All is good at the start, but that nagging voice in the back of your head slowly gets louder.

Chocolate! Cookies! You can treat yourself, one won’t hurt…

Before you know it, you’re elbow-deep in a box of Oreos. Well, in the name of satisfying both your sweet tooth and your macros, I’ve started experimenting with what I jokingly call ‘protein baking’. First up; chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, with a twist!

    Mixin’ those Stoked Oats in.

  6. Roll dough into ~2″ diameter balls, and space 1-2″ apart on sheets.
