I am always looking for new high protein recipes, especially in the form of treats! I recently tested this double chocolate protein cookie recipe and it turned out great.
The Taste:
I loved how these cookies were not as sweet as traditional store bought or homemade cookies. In fact, the avocado in the recipe gave these cookies a slightly bitter taste, which I personally enjoyed. The cookies were dense like a brownie, but the oats made them crunchier than a granola bar. Every few bites there was a burst of dark chocolate, so don’t omit them from the recipe or you will miss out!Note: The cookies taste best fresh out of the oven. I tried freezing them, but they tasted a bit dry and lost their intense chocolaty flavour.

Its about balance . . . 
Getting enough protein in our diets is critical. It can help to improve muscle mass, bone health, insulin sensitivity, and even blunt some aspects of inflammation in the body. In order for our bodies to make protein, we need essential amino acids (there are nine of them). Unlike fat and carbohydrate, our bodies cannot make essential amino acids, so we need to get these through the foods we eat. All of the essential amino acids can be found in red meat, poultry, seafood and dairy products. If you are a vegetarian, it is very important that you consume a balanced diet because fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and grains only give you some of the essential amino acids (not the entire set of nine!). Note: The whey protein (which was used in this recipe) is also rich in essential amino acids.If you participate in regular aerobic exercise, you have an increased need for dietary protein. Be sure you are getting enough protein in your diet so your muscles can recover.
