diet cookie recipe? Answered

 I am looking for a recipe that duplicates the one on Good Morning America.  I think it was a  Dr. Seigle talking about the cookies.  Six a day and then eat a reasonable evening meal. Supposedly this cookie contains amino acids and is the weight loss answer to the universe.  I just want a reasonable facsimile to make for my family.  Anyone?

4Add wet ingredients to dry, mix well and allow to stand for 5 minutes. 5Divide in half, then half again.
6Each portion makes 6 cookies. (I used an ice cream scoop to measure out the dough.).
7Bake for 12 minutes on cookie sheet or parchment paper.
8Cookies spread very little during baking. Allow to cool slightly and transfer to wire rack.
