After all these months of working on quick, easy, delicious and nutrient dense breakfast recipes, I finally found a breakfast cookie made with raw oats worth trying. Thanks, Fitnessista. She called it it Something worth waking up for and I wholeheartedly agree! You know I made modifications to her recipe, but had to give her credit for the original idea.
::Breakfast cookie you eat with a spoon::
makes enough for 5 filling cookies
1 1/2 c raw oats
2 T hemp seed protein, or protein powder of your choice (check for GMO's!)
2 T Chia seeds1/2 c nut butter
1/3 c organic cocoa powder1/4 c xylitol - or to taste
Mix all that up and add about 1/2 cup of raw milk (you could use almond, coconut or hemp milk). Then add an over ripe mashed banana and some raisins. Or whatever you want, that's the beauty of this recipe. Anything will taste great in the base. And they are getting plenty of protein; you know that's kind of my breakfast hobby horse...
Scoop about 1/2 cup onto a salad plate cover with plastic wrap and smoosh til it's flat. Pop it in the fridge and in the morning there's a cookie you can eat with a spoon.
This recipe should be filed near the top of teaching your kids to be self sufficient. Planning on putting a version of this on the menu every week!
Worth making for the extra sleep alone!
