Dr. Lonnie Lowery and I co-wrote an article a while back about protein. In it, he discussed experiments on high protein intake conducted on college students i.e. the human lab rabbits of modern science.
Problem was, it was difficult to get 20-year olds to comply with the dietary guidelines. Dr. Lowery and Dr. Peter Lemon decided that it was easier to get them to eat high-protein cookies than drink protein shakes.
Here’s my version of their lab rabbit cookies. Very easy to make, no baking, and delicious. Great for packing on trips or taking to work or school.
Chris’s “Gourmet” Lab Rabbit Cookies
1.5 Cups Oatmeal [toasted or raw]
3/4 Cup Natural Peanut Butter or Almond, Walnut etc. (Do not get the “no stir” variety; oil should separate.)
2-3 Scoops Low-Carb <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/supplements/metabolic-drive-low-carb.jsp"target=“new”>Metabolic Drive, chocolate
1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
Just enough water to allow easy mixing
Toss the oatmeal into a bowl. Toss the protein powder and coconut on top of it. Add peanut butter and just a little warm water and mash it all together with your grubby paws. Form into cookies (or even just balls) then roll them in a plate of extra coconut flakes if you’d like.
