High Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies

What better way to start off Monday than with a healthy high protein chocolate chip cookie recipe?  These cookies are based off of the #KimHoeltjeCookie recipe on Instagram and are quickly becoming a staple in my house (well, apartment).

I made these for my family over Thanksgiving and then again for my boyfriend this past weekend.  No one can believe these are healthy!  My family even did a taste test between real chocolate chip cookies (REAL meaning butter, sugar, white flour) and these healthy high protein chocolate chip cookies and they really couldn’t tell much of a difference.  My mom did note “it just tastes like something is missing but I don’t know what that is”.  Which is FINE by me because there is A LOT missing in terms of fat and simple carbohydrates and sugar and you can’t even notice.  So without any more suspense here is the recipe.  These are very macro-friendly and high in fiber too.  Don’t forget to subscribe to Kim’s YouTube as well if you want to find more recipes like this!
