The "add everything from inside your cabinet & then bake it" cookies

This was definitely a "go-with-the-flow" kind of recipe. Sometimes I feel like I need to do that more in my life... "Go with the flow", that is. It seems that am always bound to strict types of restraints and limitations for myself- be it timelines, strict eating or being angry with myself for not hitting my mat as much as I have "planned" too. I am constantly on this tight-ass schedule with everything I do. Heaven forbid my plans happen to shift and I physically can't make it somewhere- I beat myself up for it. I feel like it's definitely important for me to acknowledge this in order to move forward. Although I have always known this, I can see it now free of judgement and be more compassionate/kind towards myself. I'm really trying hard to be more of a calm, cool, collected & go-with-the-flow kind of gal. And yes, I know this has nothing to do with oatmeal raisin chocolate chip protein cookies, but it was on my mind. Sorry not sorry, lol.

Makes 26 cookies.

Ingredients:

  • 3 whole bananas
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 5 cups quick organic oats 
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips 
  • 1 cup raisins  
  • 1/4 cup Chia seeds
  • 1tbs Cinnamon 
  • 1tbs Vanilla extract
  • 30g vanilla whey protein powder 

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line with a light layer of coconut oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine your wet ingredients: mashed bananas, vanilla extract & eggs.
  3. In a separate bowl combine your dry ingredients: oats, chocolate chips, raisins, chia, cinnamon and protein powder.
  4. Next, fold both bowls into the wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
  5. Using a spoon, create small round balls with the cookie batter and place them onto your baking sheet.
  6. Bake cookies in your oven for 15 minutes or until the edges begin to brown.
  7. Allow to cool before eating.

Let's get baking!
