The original protein breakfast cookie. This is a delicious and healthy make-ahead breakfast recipe that tastes just like dessert! The oats absorb the milk and soften overnight, so the next morning, you can grab a spoon and enjoy. Add your favorite protein powder and customize with mix-ins of choice!
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 (you can use chocolate or vanilla!)
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 😀
Stir in your mix-ins of choice and season with a little cinnamon and/or vanilla
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 😀
