Yay cookies!! ?? For all you healthy moms and fitness freaks, here’s something that will satisfy both yours and your kids’ sweet craving, without the empty calories or sugar crash! ????
Yes, I am aware that this recipe breaks all of the food combining rules I write about in my Ebook “Your Best Belly”. But many of you are not yet following those rules. It’s like I always say – one thing, one step at a time.
And along the way, you deserve a healthier treat too! So go ahead and enjoy a few “conscious cookies”, absolutely guilt-free. 🙂

MACROS per full recipe cookie = 2.7 grams protein, 2.9 grams carbs, 2.5 grams fat
CALORIES per cookie = 45
*Omit chocolate for fewer calories (carbs + fat)
1/2 cup whey powder
1/2 cup ground oatmeal
1 TBSP baking powder
1-2 packs stevia optional (I use one)
1/2 oz dark chocolate optional (I use 86%)
1/2 cup egg whites
REMEMBER: You must use REAL all natural, no-sugar-added peanut butter, and REAL dark cocoa chocolate (that means 75% or higher) to eliminate all the empty sugar calories.
You could also eliminate the chocolate altogether, or replace with raisins.
