Breakfast Cookie

Packed with protein and healthy carbs with the option to be sugar free, this is the perfect grab-and-go breakfast, hiking snack or post-workout treat. Each cookie boasts less than 200 calories, 10 grams of protein, and healthy fat and carbs to keep you satiated and fueled-up. Oh yeah, and there's chocolate in it.

Post-Run Protein Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Work Time: 30 min
Total Time: 3.5 hours
Makes 15 palm-sized cookies

1 cup almond flour

¼ cup xylitol (or Truvia, Splenda, or granulated sweetener of choice)

½ cup protein powder (we used plain pea protein)

1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt (or applesauce to make it dairy-free)

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp vanilla

20 drops stevia (or 2 to 3 packets to taste)

4 egg whites

½ cup water

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup dark chocolate chips

Mix together all dry ingredients except for oats. Add in wet ingredients and mix until smooth. Fold in rolled oats, then fold in chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 3 hours to let dough set. Roll into 15 balls on lined or lightly sprayed cookie sheets. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until cookies begin to brown on top. Let cool and store in the fridge in airtight container.
