Chocolate Chip Walnut Protein Cookies

Adapted from a recipe I found on Allrecipes, these cookies are truly some of the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve made. For this recipe, I replaced the white sugar with granulated Stevia and used whole wheat flour and whey protein powder in place of all purpose flour to increase the fiber and protein content and decrease the added sugar. The addition of walnuts provides protein, fiber, antioxidants, healthy omega-3 fats, and important micronutrients, including copper, manganese, molybdenum, vitamin E, folate, and biotin. These cookies would be a great post-workout treat to replace lost glycogen and amino acids.
