The original breakfast cookie

Hello! Hope you’re all having a great day!

Here is the breakfast cookie how-to I’ve been promising:

In a small bowl, add 1/3 cup oats, 1 tbs nut butter of choice (I used raw almond) and 1/2 scoop protein powder (tonight was chocolate Designer Whey)

Stir to combine and use the spoon to break up the nut butter until you have a nice crumbly mixture.

Add 1/8-1/4 cup milk of your choice (For me, unsweetened vanilla almond milk) and mix until fully moistened

Next, add in 1/2 mashed banana and stir well

Now the fun part- pick the mix-ins! You can get creative with this one– I’ve tried banana, raisins, pumpkin, chocolate chips, ground espresso beans… add anything you like :D

Stir in your mix-ins of choice and season (I used a little Stevia and cinnamon)

Plop the mixture onto an appetizer-sized plate and with the back of your spoon, flatten it into a round shape with equal thickness throughout

Put the cookie in the fridge overnight. It will harden slightly from the nut butter and the oats will soften from the milk.

Next morning, grab a spoon and enjoy :D

  1. Hi, just want to say THANK YOU for making and sharing this recipe! I use my stand mixer to make a x4 batch on Sundays that I pack into half-pint mason jars and stash in the fridge for breakfast through the week. I put everything (except oats) in the mixer until well blended and add the oats then, scraping down once. I really had something against mashing banana by hand and ate them so often that this has been a huge time saver. These have still been fine to eat on Friday (and bet they would be ok to freeze and take out the night before but haven’t tried that yet). I like to add a Tbs of chia seeds (per batch, so 1/4 cup for four jars) which seems to firm it up. That along with cocoa and protein powder make them so filling I often have 2/3 before work and 1/3 as a snack later. They are just awesome and have helped me start the day satisfied and stress-free, just grab and go! Thanks again!

  2. Thanks! Just to clarify, even though I said they are blended, I do use the Kitchen Aid mixer for that :) This is a link to a picture of them all stacked up in the fridge. They are strangely cute- Breakfast Cookies in a Jar! They actually live in the bottom drawer where they are out of the way and out of sight, but I was telling my friend about them and wanted her to see their awesomeness. Have a great week!

  3. Thank you for the recipe, a friend of mine is currently doing Ramadan and she asked me if I new any good recipes she could have in the morning (as supposed to get upearly to eat), i will defintely send here this recipe.
