"Dookies!" #lowcarb #recipe

That's what my grandson (who is 2 years old today!) calls the cookies he and I make :).

I've mentioned that I never follow a recipe for our cookies, so they're probably always a little different. We got 27 out of our batch today; I've learned to make small batches because if there's a big pile sitting there, we have more of a tendency to eat several at a time instead of just 1-2.

Mixed until smooth:
1/2c xylitol
1/2 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla

Added in and beat until well blended:
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

Mixed in:
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1/2c almond flour
1/2c oat bran
1/4c coconut flour

Dropped by tablespoons (well, not actual tablespoons, I used a cookie drop - these are really swell, if you've never used one, they are great!) onto a greased cookie sheet and baked at 350F until the edges started to brown.

VERY good!

(I would typically use half Diabetisweet Brown Sugar sub and half Xylitol but I'm out of the former at the moment, and didn't want to mess with the jar of molasses.)
