Healthy Chocolate Protein Cookies

Sometimes one good chocolate chip protein cookie recipe isn’t enough. Some days, it feels like there is simply not enough chocolate in the world. Of course, this once again raises the question of how can I get my chocolate fix without breaking the calorie bank? My favorite go-to method for cookies is remove the bad stuff (white sugar, processed stuff, etc.) and add in some protein to ramp up the nutrition. This recipe will yield 14 delicious, chocolatey cookies.

Like my other protein cookie recipe, this option calls for very few ingredients, doesn’t take a lot of time to prep and bake, and is absolutely scrumptious!
