Even if you're on a strict diet, two or three of these "healthified" sugar cookies won't blow your nutrition. Did I mention they're soft, with just the right amount of "bite," and that the frosting is to die for?

Directions

Prep:
Cook:
Total:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together dry cookie ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
  3. Add wet ingredients, and mix until a dough forms.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly spray with cooking spray.
  5. Form balls of dough with a tablespoon and place 2" apart on sheet.
  6. Press balls flat to roughly half an inch thick using the back of a spatula or your hand.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until edges are firm but center is still soft (cookies will set upon cooling). I flattened mine a little more fresh out of the oven with the back of a spatula.
  8. While cookies cool, combine frosting ingredients in a separate mixing bowl until smooth.
  9. Spread frosting over cookies and decorate with sprinkles if desired. Enjoy!
  10. Cookies can be stored at room temperature for several days or frozen up to a month.
  11. Note: You may need to adjust water (3 tbsp) depending on the kind of protein powder you use.
