Chocolate Chia Protein Cookies

A cookie nutritious enough that you can eat it for breakfast? Sign me up! I used to eat Oreos and milk for breakfast as a kid. Not the best start to the day, but try these out instead with some protein and brain food, and you can feel good about chocolate cookies for breakfast. Really it is just like eating oatmeal 🙂 These are nice and chewy and soft.
You need:

1 egg (or flax egg)

 3tbs coconut flour

1 cup gf rolled oats

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp almond extract

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1tbs carob powder

6 tsp chia seeds

1 small ripe banana

2/3 cup almond milk

1/4 cup kefir

3 tsp chocolate pb2

1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein
Simply blend together all wet ingredients (including banana) and then combine with all dry ingredients in a bowl. Scoop onto parchment paper or greased foil.

Bake at 350F x 10 min, and enjoy!
