Breakfast cookie

Before I forget again to post about this, I wanted to post about the breakfast cookie, which will likely become a regular in my breakfast item rotation list. I first heard about the breakfast cookie from the Runner’s Kitchen who referenced the original recipe which can be found here.

As soon as I read about the ingredients and incredibly easy prep involved, I knew I had to try it. So off I went using the following:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 2 tbsp rice milk
  • 2 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 tsp organic honey
  • 2 tsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

The verdict? A-MAZING! The espresso powder gave it this lovely coffee flavour, and the honey helped sweeten it a bit. The only thing is that this cookie wasn’t as firm as I thought it’d be – I’m not sure if that’s because of the added honey, or if it’s because this breakfast cookie isn’t baked. Either way, it was a really nice departure from my regular breakfast and it kept me full right up until lunch. I highly, highly recommend this breakfast cookie. All it takes is a few minutes to assemble it the night before, so there should be no excuses for skipping breakfast from  now on!

  1. I don’t really understand the breakfast cookie thing… can you suggest a good starter’s recipe for it that doesn’t involve espresso or protein powder, or does it need both to make it what it is?

  2. The great thing about the breakfast cookie is that it’s as versatile as overnight oats! Basically, you pick your proportion of rolled oats and your favourite nut butter. Other than that, you can add whatever you want to bulk it up. I originally always used protein powder, but now I don’t always. I just added in espresso because I love coffee-flavoured anything. I’ve even subbed in apple sauce for banana before — it’s all great! Because you’re reducing the amount of liquid in it (about 2 tbsp of milk vs. 1/2 c or so for overnight oats), it doesn’t have as much volume and is more dense than overnight oats.
