Healthy Protein Breakfast Cookies

Healthy cookies for breakfast?

Inspired by _emilysworld, it dawned on me as I read the ingredients, that this is a bowl of my usual porridge just turned into cookies. Same ingredients, less of the milk. Hats off to Emily! Beautifully nutritious and macro friendly, which makes you feel kinda smug for eating cookies for breakfast.

I’ve used my usual protein powder in these cookies, rather than the peanut butter powder that Emily used. Any powder will do the trick here.
These go so well with any fruit and yoghurt of choice but would easily be good on their own. Which also makes them perfect for a healthy snack.

Gluten free oats can be used to make these GF which would add to these cookies also being dairy and egg free. The mashed banana is what binds the cookie together and gives a lovely taste. Eaten fresh out of the oven, these are so good – Thanks Emily!

Makes 4 breakfast cookies
takes approx. 15 minutes in total.

For the cookies
20g of vegan protein of choice (I use salted caramel from awesomesupps)
30g porridge oats (gluten free if required)
1 mashed banana
a bit of dairy free milk (if you need, I used unsweetened almond milk)

For the rest
chopped strawberries
yoghurt (I used alpro plain)
teaspoon of chia seeds
tablespoon of my homemade chia seed strawberry jam
sprinkle of chopped almonds
handful of blueberries

1.Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F..
2. In a mixing bowl, combine your oats, protein powder and mashed banana.
3. Form your mixture into small balls and flatten them on a lined baking tray. Add a bit of milk if they are too sticky.
4. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
5. Serve with whatever you desire.
