Breakfast cookie dough cereal

Hi guys! How are ya? Hope you’re having a lovely morning <3

Since I’ve been feasting on b-fast cookie dough cereal for a few weeks now, I thought it would be fun to do a how-to post similar to the original breakfast cookie post 🙂

There are two versions: Original and Raw

For the original version:

1. In a bowl, add 1/3-1/2 C oats, 1/2 scoop protein powder of choice (Sun Warrior is my fave), cinnamon, pinch of sea salt, a lil vanilla extract and some Stevia or sweetener of choice


2. Mix well to combine. Add 1-2 T of your favorite nut butter and using a spoon, break up and stir until mixture resembles crumbly cookie dough.


3. Top with at least 1 C milk of choice, and then add fun toppings. Get crazy 😀 I love goji berries, cacao nibs, banana, peaches, strawberries… the possibilities are endless.


4. Feast 🙂


For the raw version:

1. In a bowl, soak 1/3-1/2 C oat groats (available in the bulk section of most health food stores) overnight.


2. Drain and rinse the groats, then add them to a small food processor. Pulse to break up the oat groats a bit. Add 1/2 scoop protein powder (Sun Warrior will keep the “raw” integrity of the oats), 1-2 T raw nut butter, cinnamon, pinch of sea salt and a little sweetener if you’d like. Pulse to combine.

Mixture will be crumbly:


3. Transfer mixture to a bowl and add 1 C fresh nut milk (love almond milk) and toppings of choice.


4. Feast 😀

So there ya go! Please let me know if any of ya’ll try it 🙂 It’s a perfect breakfast choice for Summer, but I can definitely see myself getting into hot oats again when the weather changes.

I’m off to do some yoga and then get back to the packing/moving beast.

See ya later today with a post on fall change/resolutions and a re-visit to the ol’ inspiration board.



Something to do: Last day for the Sun Warrior promo! The price is the best on the internet- $35 for a container (which is usually about $50), 2 containers for $65. *Click here* to get yo warrior on 🙂
