You want cookies for breakfast. We get it — we want them, too. So make this breakfast cookie! At first your brain will think you're tricking it, because how can you willingly allow it to eat cookies for breakfast? But then your brain won't care, because it tastes so good! Then your brain will get a little mad at you, because it'll find out that this cookie is actually healthy, offering over seven grams of fiber and almost 21 grams of protein. But it won't stay mad for long, because, come on — it's delicious!
There's no added sugar in this recipe; it's just sweetened naturally with raisins and the little bit of stevia in my protein powder. And the chopped almonds add a satisfying crunch that complements the soft texture of the oatmeal.
The best part about eating a huge cookie the size of your plate for breakfast is that you make this baby the night before, and you don't even have to bake it! Just mix the few simple ingredients together, flatten it on your plate, pop it in the fridge, and when you wake up, you'll be so excited to get your mouth around that chewy, cinnamony cookie!
I chose raisins and almonds to mix in, but go ahead and get creative with any kind of dried fruit, nut, or, dare I say, even chocolate chips!
