I actually was looking for a good oatmeal cookie recipe to turn into a healthy, protein cookie for my boyfriend and I. We both have a massive sweet tooth!!
Anyways I substituted butter with Ghee, (they sell it at trader joes and whole foods), instead of a cup of white sugar I used a cup of vanilla protein powder, upped the vanilla just slightly, added about a 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, used whole wheat flour, and added just a quarter cup of fat free evaporated milk (my mom always used it in baking growing up, so delicious!!), as well as a generous helping of semisweet chocolate chips! The first time I made these I even substituted agave nectar for the brown sugar, it was still very good! But considering how many cookies this makes, I didn't feel like a cup of dark brown sugar was really that bad to use. I have given this recipe to all of my friends. In fact my boss said these tasted entirely too delicious to be healthy or have protein powder in them ;) happy baking!
