Overnight Oat Cookies

Overnight Oat Cookies [My original recipe]

This is one of my favorite recipes I have ever created. There is NO added sugar, NO butter/fat, and NO dairy. You can substitute the egg for a flax egg if you wish and make the recipe vegan (also depending on your protein powder of choice).

The cookies are tasty and guilt-free! So eat up and enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C steel-cut oats
  • 1/2 C + 2 T non-dairy milk, divided (1/2 C and 2 T)
  • 1/2 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 T chia seeds
  • 1/2 C water
  • 3/4 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 C wheat bran
  • 1/4 C protein powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • optional: nuts, chocolate chips, raisins or other dried fruit

Prepare the oats:

  • 1/2 C steel-cut oats
  • 2 T non-dairy milk (or regular milk is fine)
  • 1/2 C unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 T chia seeds

Do this: combine all ingredients and place in covered container overnight

Cook the oats (next day):

  • Start by placing overnight oats with 1/2 C non-dairy (or regular) milk and 1/2 C water in microwavable bowl and cook for about 6 minutes in microwave, stirring every couple minutes.

While oats are cooking, combine:

  • 3/4 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 C wheat bran
  • 1/4 C protein powder (I used chocolate)
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • in separate bowl combine any add-ins: chocolate chips, nuts, raisins (I used 1/4 C of all 3)*

Once oats are finished cooking combine dry ingredients and oats along with 1 egg. Stir quickly so egg does not cook.

*chocolate chips will melt during the combining process with oats.

Bake for ~10-12 minutes or until firm.
