Full Answer

In order to make high-protein cookies, beat 3 tablespoons of margarine or butter and 3/4 cup of packed brown sugar, slowly adding in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla, explains DaVita HealthCare. Add to the batter the rest of ingredients including 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whey protein power and 1 teaspoon baking soda. If the cookie batter is too dry, add a little water. Roll the dough into small balls, and bake for 10 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Another option is to get higher protein from flax seed and sugar from bananas and Splenda, suggests the American Diabetes Association. First beat 1/2 cup of Splenda brown sugar and 1/2 cup of canola oil together before adding 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Then beat in the two bananas. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, including 2 cups of rolled oats, 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup of milled flax seed, 1/2 cup of dried cranberries, 1/2 teaspoon each of baking soda and salt and 1 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Pour the mixture containing the sugar and egg into the dry ingredients and mix. Roll the cookies into balls, and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for up to 10 minutes.
