Cranberry Protein Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies have smart carbs, healthy fats, and some protein - what’s not to love? They take about 10 minutes to whip up and have just 7 ingredients! I’ll be enjoying these post workout for the next few days for sure.
And this week is special because you can check out the video recipe demo below as I talk through the difference between rolled and steel cut oats, where the majority of the calories are coming from in this cookie, and why I don’t recommend you make your own nut butter. :o)
COOK TIME: 20 Minutes
1 Banana (mashed)
1/4 cup Vanilla Protein Powder
1 cup Oats
1 cup Almond Butter
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 cup Dried Unsweetened Cranberries
Preheat oven to 350oF (177oC). Mash bananas in a bowl with a fork. Add protein powder
and mix well.
Mix in the oats, almond butter, cinnamon and dried cranberries. Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press down gently with a fork to flatten. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
Don’t Have Almond Butter?
Use another nut butter instead.
