Protein Packed Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

For all moms-to-be who need a sweet protein fix!
First attempt on using protein powder in baking to accommodate high protein diet due to SGA. These cookies came out better than expected! Unlike most protein powder cookies which look dry, these cookies came to my standard of a good homemade cookies with crispy crust and chewy texture inside.
