      What are you looking to do? Lower the fat? Less saturated fat?

    I made them today. They are delicious! I love the taste of the oat flour- gives the cookie a sort of oatmeal taste. With the addition of the vanilla and cinnamon the cookie has an amazing all around flavor! I plan to make these cookies for a family gathering and see what people think and if they can tell that they are high protein. My husband and I couldn’t tell from the taste and absolutely loved them!

    Hey Derek I just made these with everything except I replaced the oats with kodiak protein oats and pes select protein (similar in protein and less calories) all my macros are similar but the protein is only 85 grams instead of what your breakdown says. Am I missing something?
