Tastes Better Than it Looks

I go to work early on Wednesdays so that I can leave 90 minutes early to get to my grad school class.  It seems to be an even exchange, despite having to get up at the crack of dawn.  I take my breakfast to go and today I had the luxury of grabbing the breakfast I slaved over threw together last night.

I have always been a fan of Gina's protein cookies and decided to put a seasonal spin on my version!

Aren't these pomegranate seeds pretty?
You make them ugly by adding:
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 cup oats

Then you dump it out on some parchment paper or plastic wrap and form a cookie shape

It hardens overnight and is ready to go in the morning.  I like to stick it in the freezer for 15 or so minutes to get ready for the road.

Do you make protein cookies? What do you put in them?

Yum! I don't make protein cookies, as I get plenty of protein in my diet. These do look fantastic though, great recipe, with few ingredients, just how I like it.

Actually you can keep them pretty too with a salad I posted that add nuts and just a bit of syrup!
