Introduction

An enriched oatmeal cookie that can be tweaked with various additions to suit your taste. My calculations actually indicate closer to 5 grams of protein per cookie, but... even as figured here, this cookie is very dense and filling.

Ingredients

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup whey protein (3 scoops)
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    8 tablespoon butter, at room temperature
    8 tablespoons vegetable shortening
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 1/2 cupsSplenda brown sugar & sugar substitute
    2 large eggs
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    2 cups quick-cooking oats
    1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
    1/2 cup dried cherries
    1 cup walnut halves
    1 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, shortening and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
2. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture. Stir in oats, then coconut, cherries, walnuts, and chocolate.
3. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop dough into 2-Tbsp. balls and place several inches apart on baking sheets. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until cookies are lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheets on wire racks, then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
4. Recipe can be varied by trying other nut and fruit combinations (dried apricots, almonds, and white chocolate chips OR pecans and raisins, etc.)
Makes 36 good-sized cookies.
