Protein Breakfast Cookies

First apologies for 1. not posting yesterday and 2. posting late tonight. With both those in mind, I'll get right too it tonight!

I had been wanting something more for breakfast another than just fruit and almond butter (plus eggs). I also wanted to use up some of the fruit I have stashed in the freezer...well I mean who really needs a good reason to bake anyway?

Especially cookies...for breakfast.

I adapted this recipe from With Great Expectation's PCOS nutrient-packed PCOS breakfast cookies.

I made a few small substitutions to add a little more protein.


2 very ripe bananas
1 egg
1/4 cup of almond butter
1 scoop Vega Choc-a-lot Protein Powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup of ground flaxseed meal
1/4 dried cranberries
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cover baking sheet with parchment paper.
I threw all my ingredients into a bowl at once and just mixed first with a fork (to mash the bananas) then with a spatula to combine everything.

A recommendation though would be to mash the bananas a little more with a fork, FIRST! Then add egg, vanilla extract-- cream those all together then add your dry ingredients.

Use a small scoop if you have one to dish out cookies. Mine were not evenly proportionate but the batter created about 10 cookies.

Scoop dough out of bowl onto parchment paper.

Viola! 10 (okay looks like I got 11 but that last one is a little baby cookie that I split with the lifter)protein packed breakfast cookies.

1 serving equals 2 cookies

These were so delicious. They have the consistency of muffin tops I would say. Soft, Delicious. Not a ton of added sugar, other than the dried cranberries.

Tomorrow--the meal plan will go up!

Sorry to keep it short.
Blessings everyone,
