Becky's Chocolate Cookies (C4)

Recipe Author: Becky Yokeley Love

Yield: 12 cookies

3/4 cup oats
Artificial sweetener equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
2 Tbsp PB2

Bake on a baking sheet at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes.  Do not use parchment paper -- this recipe will stick to it!

After baking is done, let the cookies cool for 2 to 5 minutes to set up.

These can also be made without the PB2 and this will reduce your calories even further.

More experimentation to determine how much less applesauce would work will be done on this recipe.
