Here it is! Same recipe as Friday - 2 ingredient cookies....but this time with PROTEIN! Yeah! This recipe makes 16 cookies for small protein treats - BUT heres a GREAT TIP!:
- Make it a MEAL! Do 4-8 cookies depending on your calorie needs for a breakfast meal with protein/fat and carbs! YUM!
- Example: 5 of 16 cookies = 251 calories/3.5g fat/36.5g carbs/21.9g protein
2 bananas, mashed with spoon at bottom of bowl
1 cup instant oats (or blend old fashioned oats in a blender)
1/2 cup Liquid egg whites (or 3 egg whites)
1 scoop protein powder
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Mash bananas in the bottom of a bowl until smooth. Stir together oats, protein and cinnamon and fold in. Pour egg whites in - combine until moist and completely combined like a cookie dough.
Roll into ball shape and press into flat discs on sprayed foil covering cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes (more moist cookies at 12 minutes, crispy at 15)
