My goal for my blog is to make the gluten free healthy lifestyle easily attainable. I want to share my recipes and tips with you all so that you will not only be physically fit and happy with yourself but internally and emotionally as well. I truly believe (and I can back this from experience) that a healthy lifestyle makes you feel all around happier and more energized. This idea applies to almost everything in life- if you put in a great effort you will get great results and same goes for your body. If you nourish your body with healthy, nutritious and whole foods you will attain the ultimate result- good health and happiness.
On that note, I would like to share with you a recipe for a quick, easy, high fiber, high protein & dairy free breakfast cookie that is great for on the go or even just a simple snack. The ingredients are really just your typical morning oatmeal baked up into a yummy cookie so; go ahead and even eat the entire batch!
½ Cup Gluten Free Oats
1 Over Ripe Banana
1-Teaspoon Chia Seeds
1-Tablespoon Chopped Walnuts (or your favorite nut)
1-Tablespoon Dark Chocolate Chips
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil and/or spray with non-stick spray. In a small bowl mix together the oats with the banana until you form a smooth consistency. Fold in the remaining ingredients. Form small balls with the dough and place on baking sheet. You should be able to make about 7 mini cookies. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove cookies from oven and let cool. Place cookies in a zip lock bag for tomorrow’s breakfast or serve immediately and enjoy. Also, you can double the recipe and freeze the cookies so you always have a healthy breakfast option when in a pinch!
