I needed something that I can eat on the go, something that would sustain me for hours. This cookie recipe is the ticket. I recently spent a weekend away at a conference, there was not a whole lot of time to eat. These cookies held me over from my 5am wake up till my 1pm lunch. When you eat these cookies with a good amount of liquid they really fill you up for hours.
Next time I make them I will press the cookies thinner and put almond butter in the middle of 2 cookies.
¼ cup cacao nibs
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup ground Chia seeds (I use a coffee grinder for this)
1/4 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
1/4 cup unsweetened dried currants (any dried fruit you like will work)
2 tablespoons maca powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 scoops Pure Protein Complete (vanilla)
2 ripe bananas
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Mix together the first 10 ingredients in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl mix the rest of the ingredients, I use a hand mixer for this. Mix all ingredients until smooth. Pour this mixture over your dry mixture and mix with a spoon to combine.
