Can a cookie actually be a fat burning food? Let’s be honest, these cookies don’t actually blast fat off thighs or eliminate the need for that afternoon run, but they do help sustain blood sugar levels which helps us fight the urge to over consume at our next meal or load up on bad carbs and fat! Every mom and Grandma should have this recipe around for those little ones who are always willing to have a cookie. (Best Eaten: as a morning or pre-workout snack)
1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
2 cups whey protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 ½ cups low-fat small-curd cottage cheese
½ cup honey
¼ cup canola oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips (optional)
½ cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl and blend with a fork.
3. In a separate bowl, combine next 5 ingredients and whisk
together with a fork, or use an electric mixer or food processor.
4. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix with a fork. Mix in oats,
chocolate chips and walnuts.
5. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an oiled or parchment-paper lined
baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes until the cookies are slightly
brown on top.

Staying slim requires eating satisfying snacks that keep hunger away. Key ingredients in these cookies include: Cinnamon to keep your blood sugar in check, slow-digesting protein from cottage cheese paired with faster-digesting whey protein powder to steadily suppress appetite, whole wheat flour for energy-revving B vitamins, oats for their anti-inflammatory polyphenols and beta-glucan, which along with healthy fats from walnuts promote a feeling of fullness that subdues cravings. We all crave sweets, so the way I look at it is, why not put something in our bodies that will actually do some good!
Thanks to Amber of RiversMom.com for sharing this great recipe.

plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to get
people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written.

WAW!!! 99 calories for two cookies?!! I can’t wait to give this recipe a try 🙂
interesting…might have to test this out!
just showed this recipe to my husband (he owns a gym) and he wants to try this! I used to make muffins and pancakes from protein powder… never tried cookies!
Thanks for posting!
PS gonna repost this on my blog, with full credit back to you!
You need to throw some Ephedra in there to make them fat burning cookies 😉
Regardless, I like how you healthified them!! Nicely done!
These sound great! And morning is my favorite time to eat cookies!
I will be honest. I have never believed in the whole fat burning food thing, but these cookies do look amazing!
These seem amazingly delicious! Unfortunately I can’t have chocolate but perhaps I could substitute the chocolate chips with something else? Ooh, like raisins, I love raisins! I will totally makes them as is for my mom though, she’s beginning to workout quite a bit these days and could definitely use a pick me up…plus she loves chocolate chip cookies!
Raisins sound like a great substitution idea, and even lower on calories.
It probably won’t work well if I eat them a pound at a time
These look like they’d really keep me full through the afternoon!
They look great! I love chocolate chip cookies and of course, the kids do as well. This is definitely a recipe I’ll have to try soon.
Fat burning cookie? Sign me up!!!
I need this to keep up with my active toddler 🙂
These sound fabulous! My daughter is a runner and I think these would be great for her!!
