This quick and healthy banana walnut breakfast cookie reminds me of banana bread, but is a much healthier option for breakfast without any added sugar. The fiber, healthy fats, and protein will help keep you full all morning, and it’s even better with a cup of hot coffee in hand!
Is there anything better than starting your weekend days with blog reading and a breakfast cookie? I think not.
Banana Walnut Bread Breakfast Cookie
- 1/3 oats
- 1/2 scoop protein powder
- 2 T almond milk
- 1 T peanut butter
- 1 T flax meal
- 1/4 t cinnamon
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 1 T chopped walnut
- Combine oats, PB, and protein powder until combined and kind of crumbly.
- Add milk and stir until well combined.
- Add in your tasty mix-ins – flax, cinnamon, banana, walnuts.
- Transfer it to a plate and using the back of a spoon, flatten and spread it out to make a cookie-ish shape.
- Stick ‘er in the fridge and let set overnight.
- Wake up to deliciousness. Sprinkle with more cinnamon and devour with a spoon.
I especially love this combo because it tasted just like banana walnut bread. SO GOOD!
Now, I believe I promised you guys a popsicle recipe. You know I’m trying to find ways to use up mint and I’m still working through some bottles of POM Wonderful that the wonderful folks at POM sent me a while ago.
So, I give you…
Pomegranate Mojito Popsicles
Makes 3 small popsicles, about 50 calories each
- 1/2 c. lowfat vanilla yogurt
- 3 T 100% pomegranate juice
- 3 t lime juice
- 1 t chopped and muddled mint leaves
Combine all ingredients. Feel free to adjust the proportions to taste. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until hardened. (If you don’t have popsicle molds, paper cups with wooden skewers will work too.)
I recently bought these popsicle molds and am quite pleased. Pretty and pretty tasty. Let me know if you try these. I’m biased, but I think they’re great. 🙂
What’s your favorite kind of popsicle? I want to get a lot of use out of my new molds.
And guess who finally created a Facebook page? Become a “fan” or “liker” or whatever. 🙂
