Breakfast Cookie!

I came across this recipe on under the recipes. It looked really good, so I made it and have it in the refrigerator, hardening up and whatnot as we speak.

The breakfast cookie involves the following ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup oats, uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon nut butter of your choice (I used extra crunchy peanut butter for mine)
  • 1/2 scoop of protein powder (I used some sort of chocolate protein powder that my mom had in the pantry)
  • 1/8 cup of milk of your choice (I used fat free milk because that's the only milk we have at the house)
  • Mix-in(s) of your choice (I used 1/2 cup canned pumpkin, 2 teaspoons of allspice, and 3 packets of splenda with the added 1 gram of fiber per packet)- I've also heard that chocolate chips and bananas are really good in this!
Directions for assembly:
  • In a small bowl, mix the oats, nut butter, and protein powder until crumbly
  • Stir in milk until blended in
  • Add mix-in(s) of your choice and stir until blended in
  • Transfer mixture to a small plate and flatten (with the back of your spoon) into a round shape with equal thickness all around
  • Refrigerate overnight and enjoy for breakfast in the morning!

I can't wait to try mine! The picture makes it look gross, what with the color combination (brown from the choc. protein powder, tan-ish from the peanut butter, and orange from the pumpkin). I really need to work on making food pretty! I'm one who doesn't care how it looks as long as it tastes good, though :) I tasted a spoonful just to make sure it tasted good (I didn't want to eat some crappy-tasting cookie for breakfast in the morning, especially because I don't have much time to eat breakfast) and it tasted AWESOME! I got a small taste of the peanut butter, chocolate, and the pumpkin/allspice/splenda mixture. It was like pumpkin pie in the form of a (wet) oatmeal cookie.

This recipe makes 1 cookie. In my recipe builder, this came out to 7 Weight Watchers points. Enjoy if you decide to make this!


  1. Yum! I should make those for the mornings since I never have time to eat at home.

  2. Yeah, it was really good! I could only manage to eat half of it though. All the oats, peanut butter, and protein powder made it really filling!
