Healthier Cookies–Works for most Recipes

I prefer to make the cookies my family eats.  As a part of our healthier choices, I make as much of our food as possible so that I know what is in the recipes and so I have some control of the nutrition going into my families bodies.

We’ve found that by simply adding a 1/4 cup of Protein Powder, the cookies have a touch of nutrition and protein to offset the sugars.

Here’s how we “fix” the cookies.


  1. Cut the sugar content in half.  This way you actually get the flavor of the cookies &/or chips.
  2. Try mixing flours.  We will substitute 1/2 the flour of the recipe with Oat Flour, Soy Flour, Rice Flour, or whole wheat flour. (no one even notices the difference)
  3. Substitute 1/4 cup of Instant Protein Powder for flour.  This adds protein to the cookie.  We should always be eating a protein with our carbs to help level out the blood sugar and keep it from spiking.

Give it a try and let us know how it goes! We do it with all our cookies, our cakes, & even our bread recipes.
