The Breakfast Cookie

Morning, friends!

I decided to mix things up a little bit for breakfast this morning and finally try a Fitnessista breakfast cookie! I’ve been seeing these around the blog world for years — it was time.

Her recipe for the cookie (linked above) is more of a general guideline — the point is to get creative with it, so I did!

Here’s what I put into the mix:

  • 1/3 C oats
  • 1 Tbsp. almond butter
  • 1/8 C milk
  • Few hefty shakes cinnamon
  • 1 spoonful chia seeds
  • Few drizzles of honey

Basically, you mix together all the ingredients in a bowl, flatten them on an appetizer sized plate, and then pop it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, you will have a hardened version (e.g. cookie) ready to eat!

Ready to go in the fridge for the morning!

This morning, I topped the “cookie” with some plain yogurt and blueberries, plus another small drizzle of honey.

The verdict? It was good! I wish it were hard and crunchy like a cookie (it stays soft/gooey) but the flavor was good and it was fun to try something new — maybe next time I’ll microwave it a little in the morning to heat it up/attempt to make it crunchy? Not sure if that would work but it could be a fun twist on the original recipe, especially if you’re craving something warm. :)

Next time I also want to try making it with some mashed banana instead of honey because banana always makes oats really delicious. We just didn’t have any on hand — the horror! Gina used mashed banana in her original recipe and I bet it would be a really good addition.

Off to enjoy the rest of my breakfast and then head off to work. FRIDAY DANCE!!! :)

What did you have for breakfast this morning? Anything interesting?

    I absolutely love this recipe! It was one of the first ones I tried from the blog world way back in the day and I still love it!

    Stick it under a preheated grilled to harden it up!

    I’m convinced I would die with out a steady stream of oats and bananas in my apartment haha. This reminds me of like a deconstructed version of overnight oats – looks good!

    This looks amazing! I think the texture would be delicious. I’m not very found of mushy-ness so this is right up my alley!

    Mmmm, this looks so good! I’ve been looking for new breakfast ideas so I’m going to try this out very soon!

    Funny that you feature this recipe on your blog today because Caitlin from Healthy Tipping Point featured your peanut butter bars today haha! I still need to try both of these recipes. I don’t know what I haven’t yet!! Happy Friday!

    I had this for breakfast this morning also! Apple sauce, cut up apple chunks, a shake of cinnamon, and some almonds went into mine. I love it! :)

    I’m usually not a breakfast eater, but this looks good! I like the thought of eating a cookie for breakfast!

    I had one of those for breakfast this morning! I definitely recommended using mashed bananas – it’s the way to go.

    The microwave might make it even softer (in my experience, anyway!); I’d go for the oven :)

    Yum this looks good. This morning I had my favourite breakfast.. peanut butter and banana on soy linseed toast :)

    I am alllll about cookies for breakfast. Or cookies anytime, if we’re being honest here.

    Looks awesome! Thanks for sharing. Any idea how many calories? And, all healthy carbs, right? :-)

    I’ve never made that cookie, but I’ve heard all about it! I definitely thought it came out crunchy though, so thanks for the tip :)

    I recently just tried the Fitnessista breakfast cookie as well! Loved it, and the mashed banana made it delish :)
