The Burlap Bag has these “two ingredient” cookie recipes on their page. I was able to try one of the recipes today for breakfast. Let me just say this: “yum!” If you haven’t tried them yet, head over to their page to get the recipes. I am not one for eating oatmeal these days, but I will put it in a smoothie to drink on the go or something like that. It is a great way to add protein and fiber to a smoothie also. Anyway for this morning’s breakfast, I decided to try this recipe. It seemed quick and easy.
- 1/2 Cup of Gluten Free Quick Oats
- 1/2 Banana (one that I left out all night. Hey, it worked.)
- A Serving of Chocolate Chips (I used Guittard)
- A little bit of Rice Dream original
It turned out fabulous.
It is a great little snack, or makes a great meal.
Fairly healthy (except for my chocolate chips).
According to My Fitness Pal, it was a little under 300 calories for my version.
Other nutrition facts: 7 grams of fiber and protein each.
One thing I want to try instead next time is mashing up the banana before adding it to my mixture (oats, etc). I needed a little bit of liquid, so I just used a little bit of milk.
