Helllloooo Fit Girls. So this is not the first clean, protein-based cookie you’ve seen on the blog – however, it is a much tastier version than seen in the past. The base ingredients remain the same, with some little extras that really make a difference. We never want clean eating to be bland, so have FUN with your cookie ingredients. I literally looked around me and threw in whatever I thought would work!
1 Cup Oats
3/4 Cup Silk Dark Chocolate Soy Milk
1 Scoop Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
1 packet Justin’s Maple almond butter
1 Teaspoon Chia Seeds
1/4 Cup Chunky, Unsweetened Applesauce
A few dashes of Cinnamon
2 Tablespoon Pepitas (for crunch)
1 Packet Stevia (I’ve found that a sweetener is key)
AND the tastiest ingredient here – 1 Wedge of Laughing Cow cinnamon cream cheese
On a cookie sheet, bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. I warmed some grape jelly in the microwave to drizzle over the cookies, and bit into them to discover a warm, gooey, delicious treat. Have these for breakfast next to some egg whites or as a post-workout snack! Or keep them in zip-lock bags in your purse for when you need a midday treat.
(This bite was AMAZING! Heellllo cream cheese)
