Who doesn’t like cookies? Give these a try the next time you have a sweet tooth!


- 1 3/4 cup oats
- 4 scoops vanilla whey protein
- 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 1 tbsp. stevia
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- Raisins (optional)
- Cinnamon (optional)

Mix everything into a big bowl until you get a doughy consistency. Then place the dough onto a greased (with nonstick spray) cookie sheet. Makes 7 or 8 big sized cookies.

The more cookies you make from the batter, the less time you need. 10 cookies will require around 10 minutes in the oven at 325 degrees.

I made 7 cookies and they cooked in about 14 minutes at 325 degrees. Just keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!

If you made 7 cookies, each one has about 150 calories.

As a Dietitian, one of my favorite holidays is Thanksgiving because it is all about FOOD! I love food, the smell of a warm kitchen on Thanksgiving day brings back many happy family memories. I love how this holiday can bring together family, old friends and new friends. It’s the holiday season and a lot of the same questions get asked each year by my clients “How can I avoid the Thanksgiving and holiday weight gain?” and “What are healthy options for side dishes?”

When it comes to nutrition, the holidays, and avoiding weight gain my motto is “keep it simple and easy.” Read more on 5 Tips to Avoid Thanksgiving Weight Gain…
