Protein Oreo Cookies

I’m back! Don’t worry if you thought my treat ideas had dried up you were sadly mistaken. I am coming back in big, huge way too. Fitastic’s very own Fitness Diva Heather Hayes made a special request. Heather is a big fan of Oreo cookies. Just go through her Instagram feed (HBombs) and you will see multiple pictures of her Oreo obsession. Sadly Heather, like all of us living a healthy lifestyle is not able to eat Oreo cookies on a day to day basis. She came to me along her teammate Aimee with a request to find or create a recipe for Protein Oreo Cookies.  After a few attempts and failures I have created a great tasting Oreo cookie that you can eat guilt free. Now these are not like your standard Oreos. The cookie itself is quiet thick and dense. Still moist but dense, this way you want be able to eat a bunch of them in one sitting. One cookie should satisfy your need, maybe two if you are bulking. Please post your comments and special requests on my Face Book page (Will Wilson). I will do my very best to create a healthy alternative for nearly any dessert or snack food you give me. Be sure to follow all our Fitastic antics on Twitter @feelfitastic and Instagram @teamfitastic. Join the movement.
