Sneaky Cookie, what….

Breakfast, it’s a must for me. I have found over the years that I need a really good breakfast. I prefer oatmeal to any other foods for breakfast. It sticks with me through the morning, it’s healthy and packed with fiber. So I am always on the hunt for a new recipes or a great new oatmeal idea. I eat OJIA almost every single day. I try to get my husband to eat more oatmeal, but he prefers bowls of cereal in the morning. So every so often I’ll leave him a jar of OIAJ for him to eat as a break from the box cereal, I’m always trying to sell him on the idea of eating daily oats, but he always goes back to cereal. So when I saw this Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie, I thought, how can he resist?

Well he couldn’t, he loved it. It is basically Overnight Oats, but on a plate. So I think I will make this for him a few times a week. I just feel like the protein value and the nutrients in the oats and nut butters are just so important to get the day started, and so void in boxed cereal. I want my husband around for a long time. So I am always trying to improve on the foods we eat.

Sneaky Breakfast Oatmeal Cookie

Adapted from the Fit Fitnessista

In a small bowl, add

1/3 cup oats

1 tbsp nut butter

1/2 scoop protein powder

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

Then Add,

1/8 cup milk of your choice, and mix until fully moistened

Then, Pick your mix-ins. Here’s some ideasBanana, raisins, pumpkin, chocolate chips, nuts

I used a ripe small banana

Stir in your mix-ins of choice

Now, season to taste. Here’s what I added: Stevia, cinnamon, unsweetened coco powder

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.

Enjoy a wonderful Sneaky Breakfast Cookie for breakfast.
