30 SECOND COCOA COOKIE
1 teaspoon butter or coconut oil
1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (1/6 cup) *
1 teaspoon cocoa
2 teaspoons granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda **
Water, as needed
In a small microwaveable bowl, heat the butter in the microwave about 20 seconds or until melted. Skip this step if using coconut oil. If you're using liquid Splenda, mix it into the melted butter or oil now. Stir in the whey powder and granular sweetener as well as you can. It will be very dry and crumbly. Gradually add water, about 1/8 teaspoon at a time, just until you can form the mixture into a ball that isn't too sticky to handle. Some oil might ooze out of the dough but that's fine. Keep the dough ball in the bowl, flatten it into a cookie shape and microwave on HIGH 15-30 seconds or until the dough puffs up and looks set and dry to the touch. Don't over cook it or it will come out very dry. In my microwave it takes about 15-20 seconds. Cool and eat.
Makes 1 cookie
* I used Body Fortress brand.
** I used 1 teaspoon spoonable Truvia (not the kind in packets) that I ran through my coffee grinder to make powdered "sugar". I measured it after grinding.

These make a quick snack and there's no temptation to eat too many since you make them one at a time. They have a nice chocolate flavor but the texture isn't quite like a real cookie. They're a little dry and tend to stick to your teeth a bit but I enjoy eating them now and then in spite of that.
