Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! It’s hard to imagine that a few years ago, I never ate it. Now I look forward to it every morning, after of course my 2-3 cups of coffee. My favorites are oatmeal, protein pancakes, and Greek Yogurt! The best part of each of these is that I ALWAYS add almond butter! I’m addicted and not afraid to admit it. I also add a serving of fruit to each of these, plus vanilla and cinnamon.
While I was going through Twitter, I saw a recent post by The Fitnessista called “My 7 Links”. If you haven’t checked out her blog, she’s absolutely hilarious and offers great recipes, workouts, and fun topics, that are sure to bring a smile to your face. Yesterdays post, “My 7 Links” had a recipe called the “Breakfast Cookie”. I was intrigued, because I could definitely use a new staple breakfast recipe. So, I gave it a try…
- 1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein
- 1/8 c unsweetened almond milk
- 1/3 cup Quaker Oats
- 1 T almond butter
- 1 c fresh blueberries
- Dash of cinnamon and vanilla
- Mix the protein powder, oatmeal, and almond butter in a small bowl
- Add the milk, cinnamon, and vanilla until well blended
- Add the blueberries
- Place on a plate in the shape of a cookie and put in fridge covered overnight.
I loved this and will definitely make it again and experiment with different fruits! It also kept me full for 3 hours and I felt fueled through my workout. Always a major plus! Try it out sometime this week and let me know what you thought or what kind of combo you came up with. I love hearing from you. Happy Hump Day!
What is your favorite fruit right now, that you can’t seem to get enough of?
