Recipe Wednesday - Have Your Cookie and Lose Too

This is a cookie recipe Dr. Oz talked about on his show.  Haven't tried it yet because I need the flaxseed meal and soy protein powder, but have put them on my shopping list.  It would be great to have a 'guiltless' sweet treat so I'm willing to give this recipe a try!

Cookies to lose weight? It's true! These protein-packed cookies help to cut down on cravings. Enjoy them with a shot of espresso to trick your body into feeling fuller sooner.

2/3 cup natural peanut butter
2 eggs
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups oats
3/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
1/4 tsp salt
4 scoops chocolate soy protein powder
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix together eggs, brown sugar, applesauce, peanut butter and vanilla. Add protein powder, oats, flax meal, salt, and baking soda. Drop spoonfuls dough onto cookie sheets approximately 6-8 per cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
