Oatmeal Cookies with Walnut and Applesauce
- 2 cups quick oats
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (I didn't have any so I poached a whole apple and mashed it)
- 4 tbsp. Splenda (I used Nature Sweet)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 scoops unflavored protein powder
- 1-2 oz. raisins (I used a 1.25 size snack box)
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup almond flour (you could use whole wheat, but this is higher protein)
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ginger

Okay, there it is. If the batter seems to dry, you can add a little more applesauce or 1/4 cup of lowfat milk. Once I had to add milk, the other two times, it was fine....Enjoy
