Giant Dark Chocolate Protein Cookies with Coconut Oil

I have learned a good lesson in baking (not that I didn't already know the chemical properties of sugar); cutting out all of the sugar in a recipe in order to reduce calories and carbs is just not right!! Some sugar is required to maintain moisture and texture. The result; a low carb, sugar free, high protein cookie that lacks moisture and that cookie texture. I will, however, feel less guilty when I have these for breakfast tomorrow morning; I still win (but not the hubby, who will be displeased with the lack of sugar, although he really does not like sweets lol)!
