Breakfast of Champions!





Being underwhelmed lately by our breakfast options and not having enough coffee at that point in the day, I needed a change in a healthy and tasty breakfast. I found a breakfast cookie recipe on Pinterest but really wanted to stop using recipes as a crutch for not baking my own things. So, I played around with some ingredients and came up with a delicious, husband-approved breakfast cookie!





Ingredients:
2 bananas mashed in a food processor
2/3 PB2 chocolate (you can use peanut butter and cocoa powder if you want or just peanut butter)
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I use Perfect Fit Protein-15g of protein!)
1/8 cup or so of coconut milk ( I say "or so" because I splashed some in to moisten it a little and I'm not sure how much it was...sorry!)
1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup of old fashioned rolled oats













Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine mashed bananas, PB2, protein powder, vanilla and coconut milk together until blended. When it's a creamy, doughy consistency add in the rolled oats until evenly blended. Drop cookies onto a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.


The banana really makes it a great breakfast cookie because the flavor is very apparent but the PB2 adds the perfect blend of peanut butter and chocolate without being too bold. The powder is awesome to bake with and I am looking forward to doing that more! It's not exactly low calorie, but it's high protein and will fuel your morning so that you can burn off those calories throughout the day-just don't eat 4-5 cookies for breakfast!
