Raw Chocolate Oat Breakfast Cookie

adapted from For the Health of It

Serves 1-2

Prep time: 5 minutes plus refrigerating overnight

Cost: $.45

(oats: .05, milk: .04, nuts: .30, other stuff: .06-ish)


1/3 C vegan milk of your choice

1/4 C wheat bran

1/4 C oat flour

2 Tbsp chocolate protein powder

1 Tbsp flax meal

1 Tbsp finely sliced almonds

1 Tbsp apple sauce

1/2 Tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp cinnamon

toppings of choice (she used chocolate chips and blueberries)

Mutilated, but yummy (and also potentially gluten-free), adaptation:

1/4 C 2% milk

1/4 C oats (I gave them a spin in the blender a few times to get them smaller and more wheat bran-ish in size/texture)

1/4 C oat flour

1 1/2 tsp sugar

2 tsp cocoa powder

2 Tbsp super chopped cashews

1 Tbsp apple sauce

1/2 Tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp cinnamon

(I ate mine without toppings)

Mix all ingredients (except toppings) together in a small bowl. Spread evenly on a plate (I just left mine in the bowl because I am lazy. (Is this not clear pretty clear from the fact that I failed to make it to the store for over a week as I stewed on this recipe?) 

Place in refrigerator overnight. In the morning, add toppings if using. Eat it up. You'll probably do this with a spoon instead of grabbing it up like you would with a non-raw breakfast cookie because--unless you've coated it in M & M's--it will sort of melt in your hand.
