No-Bake Protein Cookies

No-Bake Protein Cookies

People tell me it’s possible, but I don’t believe them.  They tell me that they never eat breakfast, and lunch is their first meal everyday, but I am convinced that they are either (a) lying, (b) crazy, (c) confused, or (d) all of the above.

For one thing, breakfast has to be the best meal of the day.  Why would you want to skip it?  I mean, aatmeal is considered a breakfast food.   Enough said.  (And for everyone who isn’t an oatmeal-addict, there’s always bacon, eggs, grits, sausage, hasbrowns, yogurt, etc.)

Additionally, I wake up hungry almost every single morning.

All that being said, I guess no one truly skips breakfast since the whole idea of “breakfast” is that you “break a fast.”  Really,  the first thing you eat on any given day is breakfast.

Even with breakfast, I am hungry again by the end of my first class.  I have found that eating 1-2 of these protein-packed cookies between classes can tie me over until lunch.  Since they require no oven or stove, I can mix up a batch quickly and have enough cookies to last me a week.  And even if you “skip breakfast,” you can still enjoy one of these before lunch 🙂 .

  1. I must admit, I don’t wake up hungry. I always have a smoothie or an Odwalla or something, but my breakfasts aren’t usually very large. These look like a great way to start off the day though! Thank you so much for sharing, and happy FF!
