Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies

Hey Cookie Monsters!

Zillions of bodybuilders and fitness models have the following in their meal plan:

  • rolled oats
  • almond butter
  • whey protein
  • cinnamon

So why not combine all of these ingredients and make warm and chewy cookies?

Just look at them!!!

These are awesome because they are:

  • High in protein
  • Low in Sugar
  • Only 5 ingredients
  • Delicious

Recipe:

Place the following into a bowl:

  • 1 scoop of BSN ISOBURN Whey (vanilla ice cream flavour)
  • 3/4 cup of gluten-free rolled oats.
  • 1 TBSP of nut butter.  Feel free to use all natural peanut butter or almond butter.
  • 5 g (that would be 1 tsp) of raw cacao nibs. You can substitute with >70% dark chocolate chips.
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Sweeten with 1 TBSP Walden Farms Calorie Free/Sugar Free Pancake Syrup. You could substitute with vanilla stevialuo han guo, or vanilla extract.
  • Add a sparing amount of water whilst mixing the abovementioned ingredients. Don’t add too much water. You want to end up with a "dense protein boulder".

Make into cookie shapes and place onto a Paraflexx  non stick drying sheet in your food dehydrator. I decided to invest in the smallest and least expensive Excalibur Food Dehydrator.

dehydrator

  • Dehydrate at 95-105 degrees until dry on the outside and moist on the inside.  I left mine in my dehydrator for 4 and 1/2 hours.
  • If you don't eat them all, store them in an air tight container.
  • I was able to make 7 cookies using these quantities. Feel free to make bigger or smaller cookies.

What if you don't have a food dehydrator and you don't want to buy one?

  • Use your oven at the lowest temperature setting possible (100 to 150 degrees)
  • Place the cookies onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
  • Place into the oven and keep the door open. Use a fan if your oven has one (to minimize condensation)
  • You don't have to leave it in the oven as long as you would in the dehydrator. Check after 1 to 2 hours.
