Oattie Cookie

These are amazing and one of my all-time favorite recipes. I've been known to eat three of these for breakfast along with a protein shake or some egg whites. They are fantastic for people that are on the go and don't have time to sit down, heat up water and make oats. They're also great for traveling and perfect for your kids. I guarantee you can get your kids to eat oats in the morning with these babies, and they won't even realize it!

Here is the basic recipe:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together

  • 3 cups of dry oats
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce OR pure canned pumpkin. I prefer the pumpkin!
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • (Optional: add 1/8 cup Stevia to sweeten)

Simple, right? Right!

Mix everything together and drop by spoonful onto a baking sheet sprayed lightly with non-stick cooking spray. You can also roll these into balls by hand, and slightly flatten.

Makes 24 cookies. <-- make sure you portion out 24, or the macros listed below will be different.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

My favorite way to make this recipe is to substitute pure canned pumpkin instead of the applesauce. It makes the cookies moist, adds fiber and beta-carotene, and cuts the carbs down a bit.
Get creative! Add dried cranberries & walnuts, or shredded coconut & cacao nibs, or whatever your heart desires. Or maybe even smear a tiny little bit of peanut butter or PB2 on top!

No need for flour, sugar or other ingredients that our bodies just do NOT need!

Just remember that anything you add in is going to change the macros, so calculate them out and make sure that they fit into your daily caloric “budget.”

I like to add semi-sweet chocolate chips to this recipe for a treat and they are amazing! I made these for my friends and family numerous times and they say that they are BETTER than regular oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!

These are perfect to stick in a Ziploc bag and take with you along with some protein powder so you have no excuse not to be prepared with clean food.

These store at room temp for about two days. Any longer than that and you want to refrigerate them.

Chocolate chewies


  • 45 grams of dark chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 extra small banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

First, mash the banana completely with a fork.
Next, microwave the chocolate chips for about 60 seconds until they are melted, being very careful not to burn them.

Mix the banana and the other ingredients into the melted chocolate and stir it all together. Drop seven small cookies onto a plate covered with wax or parchment paper.

Toss into the fridge for about an hour so they can set up, and then enjoy!

They melt rather quickly, so it's best to have them when they are a bit cold.
