Being diabetic means tossing out the packaged cookies that are not protein loaded. So, I had to come up with a recipe for Oatmeal Raisin cookies that are balanced protein and carb. They have 10 gm fat per cookie, but that is fine, because the fat comes from coconut flour and nuts and eggs. These are all natural fats, not transfats, and help make cell walls permeable again for insulin and glucose to get inside cells. They taste great, too!

OATMEAL WONDER COOKIES - makes 18 cookies

3 pkg Protein Oatmeal, Apples 'N Cinnamon
2/3 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup splenda
2 tbs chia seed
2 tbs baking powder
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts

Mix all dry ingredients. Mix oil and eggs, add to dry mixture. Add raisins and walnuts.
Spray a cookie sheet with pan spray. Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheet and bake at 350F for 20 minutes, or until brown.
