With all the cooking I do, I feel like my arms are either constantly submerged in a sink full of bubbles, or else emptying my dishwasher.  In the mornings, as I try to get two girls out the door, I often find myself eating breakfast on the go.

One of my favorite breakfasts is oatmeal. Driving with a bowl isn’t recommended, though many an evening I have taken a crusted bowl out of my car and labored to scrub the remaining oats off the sides of the bowl.

Well, I have the perfect solution.  With a glass of milk, these oatmeal treats, boasting 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per cookie, are as hearty as a bowl full of oats, and as healthy too.  Grab two on your way out the door for a delicious and healthy breakfast on the go.

Ingredients:

1 ¼ cup Old Fashion Rolled Oats

½ Cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour

2 TBSP Flaxseed

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. Sea Salt

½ cup Agave Nectar

1 egg white

1 tablespoon almond butter

1 tsp vanilla

¼ cup chocolate chips

2 TBSP Chia Seeds

2 TBSP Hemp Protein Powder

¼ cup Sweet potato Puree

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix Oats, flour, flaxseed, cinnamon, baking soda, chia seeds, hemp protein powder, and sea salt in a large bowl.  Combine Agave, egg white, almond butter, vanilla,  and sweet potato puree in a medium bowl.  Combine the two mixtures.  Spoon mixture into 16 or so evenly spaced cookies and flatten slightly with your spoon.

Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until golden brown.
