Big Chocolate Cookie

Way back in the day (about 25 years ago) I was deep into Weight Watchers. Every week, I'd walk into the meeting and there'd be a new, interesting recipe written on the board for us to copy and try at home. One week, this recipe for a Big Chocolate Cookie was up there, and I thought, "wow, what's not to like about this one?" The recipe makes one giant cookie. The cookie has loads of good nutrition in it, and can serve as a main meal. I love it for breakfast. Who wouldn't want chocolate cookies for breakfast?

Big Chocolate Cookie

Makes One cookie
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1 packet chocolate ALBA shake mix**
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 C rolled oats
1 T peanut butter
1/2 tsp honey
2 T water
2 T raisins

combine all ingredients in small bowl and form into a big cookie on baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake 8-10 minutes.

**The tricky ingredient is the Alba shake mix. You can probably find it in the grocery store with the other milk shake mixers.
