My morning cookie
Who doesn’t like to start the day off right with a bog ol’ cookie? 😉 Breakfast has never tasted so sinful. I made an Cherry-Oat version of the ever popular breakfast cookie. I tweaked the recipe a little because I was anticipating a turbo-packed day today… although the weather may have changed that… Big day at work, spin class at noon (my instructor Matthew kills me and I love it!), and then Yoga Spa after work. I’ve never gone to Yoga Spa, but it sounds pretty fab… 2 hour yoga class at Equinox done in candlelight with a focus on meditation and relaxation – sign me up!
Cherry-Oat Breakfast Cookie (makes 1 large cookie)
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 1/3 c. rolled oats
- 2 Tbsp almond milk (unsweetened)
- 1 tsp NuNaturals Stevia baking blend
- 1 tsp vanilla whey protein (I used BioChem)
- 9 dried tart cherries
- pinch cinnamon
- pinch cloves
Mash up the banana with the maca, almond milk, Stevia, whey protein and rolled oats. Spread everything out onto a small plate and dot the tart cherries into the cookie “dough”, sprinkle with spices and set in the fridge overnight. Easy, no?
I am loving the addition to maca powder to my smoothies and breakfast cookies on my really busy days. I’m going to have to experiment a bit with it because it might be a good pre-marathon fuel addition. Hmmm just got an email that the NY office is closed for the day – guess it won’t be so busy after all!
