oatmeal “cookies”

These little nuggets are exactly what I’ve been searching for!

I have been on the hunt for something that is tasty and delish, while also healthy and which provides a lot of energy!

These cookies were created without any added sugar, protein powder, and lots of yummy oats. They are my favorite for the crazy sweet tooth I have mid-afternoon or later in the evening!

(not your average) Oatmeal Cookies 

  • 2 bananas
  • 1.5 scoops vanilla protein powder (or your powder of choice)
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 4 T egg whites, or one egg white, or one whole egg
  • 2 C oats
  • 1/4 C wheat bran
  • 1/4 C flax meal
  • 1/2 C whole wheat flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • optional add-ins (I added the first 3!):
    • 1/4 C walnuts
    • 1/4 C chocolate chips
    • 1/2 C jumbo mixed raisins
    • 1/2 C raisins
    • 1/4 C pecans or other nut
    • chopped dates
    • cranberries

Do this: preheat oven to 350. In food processor, combine bananas, protein powder, egg white, and vanilla until smooth. Set aside. In large bowl, combine oats, wheat bran, flax meal, baking powder and soda, cinnamon, salt and flour; mix well. Add banana mixture to dry ingredients and combine; add add-ins and stir just until everything is combined. Scoop onto baking sheet and bake for ~8 minutes.
