High-Protein Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These are adapted from Melissa Clark's "Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies" on the NY Times cooking site. I swapped healthier alternatives for some of the butter, flour, and sugar, and ended up with subtly sweet breakfast cookies that my boyfriend eats all day at work. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Reduce vanilla extract if using vanilla-flavored protein powder.
