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
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:
1/8 cup milk of your choice, and mix until fully moistened
Then, Pick your mix-ins. Here’s some ideas: Banana, 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.
