Fudge-y Chocolate Protein Cookies

I have a new best friend. We met about a year ago on Dashing Dish, and it’s name is oat flour. Ever since I discovered the magic of baking with oat flour, 90% of my baking recipe experiments use it. The best part is I can make it at home easy-peasy. All you do is take old fashioned oats, throw them in the blender, and boom, oat flour.

I have subbed oat flour for regular flour many times, the tricky part is keeping baked goods moist especially when adding protein powder to the mix. I would like to tell you I know the exact baking formula for achieving moist baked goods, but unfortunately I do not. I am the type of person that irrationally throws ingredients into a bowl and hopes for the best. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

These Fudge-y Chocolate Protein Cookies work wonderfully!
