The Balanced Beauty’s “Cookie” Bites

October 4, 2013

cookieAn easy, quick treat without the fat, oil or sugar of typical cookies!

Bake the night before for breakfast on the go, as an all-natural energy or recovery snack pre/post workout, or for kids lunches or after school treats!

Fantastic for busy Moms, as they take just 5 minutes to prep!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Packets Instant Oatmeal (gluten free)
  • 1/4 Cup Raisins
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey, Agave or Truvia packet (option for extra sweetness)
healthy cookieDIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Add water and make 1 packet of instant oatmeal, as directed
  3. While oatmeal is cooking, ‘mush’ banana
  4. Once oatmeal is cooked, stir in banana, raisins, cinnamon, egg, and touch of any extra sweetener (as desired)
  5. Add 1 uncooked packet of oatmeal to the mixture (this helps create a crunchy cookie texture)
  6. Place tablespoon size doughy balls (“globs“) of oatmeal onto cookie sheet (I typically line a cookie shoot with tin foil and spray with Olive Oil Pam to avoid sticking)
  7. Bake approximately 10 minutes or until they become golden brown
  • Include protein powder, if desired, for pre/post workout snack
  • If you want to eat as guilt-free dessert, pair with your favorite yogurt (Chobani apple cinnamon, pear, or banana flavors pair best) or include a dab of  cool whip or real whipped cream
  • Mix up the recipe by adding your own favorite touches- A touch of all-natural peanut or almond butter, coconut, chopped nuts, dried fruit, or even dark chocolate...Have fun and ENJOY!
