How do I make my chocolate peanut oatmeal cookies more dense/firm?

CuriousNewbies78 | Apr 22, 2017 07:29 AM

16 bars
Current ingredient list
1⁄2 cup skim milk
1 cup Kraft peanut butter
17g granulated sugar
1 1⁄4-1 1⁄2 cups of whey protein powder
2 cups dry uncooked oatmeal

When I make the cookies they're soft and spongy, so do I need to increase sugar? Do I need to add more fat ie butter? I've tried cutting out the milk and it doesn't make a difference.

Also Id like to keep the calorie count as low as possible, so if I need more sugar can I scale back on the oatmeal to compensate ?
