Do you know that a glass of milk and three oatmeal cookies provide from twenty to twenty-five percent of the protein you need every day?
So it’s a good idea to keep your cookie jar filled with popular oatmeal cookies. They’re wonderful for dessert and snacks anytime.
In fact, because of the protein in oatmeal cookies, they’re especially good as a dessert for athletes and for men and women on weight control diets.
