Cookiesssss (*said in the cookie monster voice*) but healthy 😉 That’s the best of both worlds, my dear! Boosted with collagen peptides, packed with chocolate flavor and made with a base of banana and rolled oats, these 5-ingredient oatmeal breakfast cookies are a MUST.
Let’s Talk About The Macros
They are chewy and taste oh so decadent with incredible macros. 65 calories, 1g of fat, 11g of carbs and 3g of protein per cookie… like are you kidding me?! No, Reed, I’m not kidding you, in fact you made this recipe ;P With macros like that you’d think these oatmeal breakfast cookies taste “healthy,” but no ma’am, they taste amazing!
This recipe was inspired by a snack attack video that I shot last weekend where I made this recipe from skinnytaste.com! It includes the simple ingredients of bananas, oatmeal and chocolate chips, so I thought I would amp it up with some collagen peptides and cocoa powder. Gotta love a little protein boost!
