Breakfast Cookie and a Sexy New Man

I've been curious about the infamous breakfast cookie ever since I first saw them on Gina's blog. I knew the recipe called for protein powder (which I've never used), so when I saw these little packets at the store, I snatched 'em right up.


LOOK at those biceps. mmmmm.

It smells SO good. Like cocoa powder!

I also got to try out this new stuff....I've never had the TJ's brand and being that it's about $3 cheaper than Maranatha, I might be a convert.

My cookie contained 1/2 the ($2!) packet of sexy powder, 1/2 smashed ripe naner, 1 tablespoon almond butter, 1/3 cup oats, a splash of skim milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

The outcome....



The verdict? This was SO GOOD! I almost felt guilty eating it for breakfast. ;-) I am fo' SHO' making this again.

Do you use protein powder? What's your fave? They are pretty $$$, but I have to admit they are so convenient and dayumn this stuff tastes good.

Today I am thankful for:

- New recipes

- Wi-Fi

- 80's music

You are too cute! Haha! ;)

I still haven't tried a breakfast cookie, why is that??!

I love TJ's almond butter. So, so good and you're right, the price is great!!

I really like Jay Robb protein powder. I have the vanilla one. The only other that I've tried is Designer Whey which isn't as good, imo.

I have the same almond butter but with sea salt. Love me some salt. I really like it. I put it on toasted Ezekiel bread and it gives it a nice flavor. I grew up in the 80s so I've got tons of that music on my ipod.

Jay Robb Whey is good, but since I'm trying to go more veggie- I use Jay Robb Egg White Protein. It is TOTALLY delicious! He is the man.

For the spaghetti squash, there is actually a squash called spaghetti squash. You can usually find it right near the acorn squash :) When you scrape it with a fork (after cooking) it makes little spaghetti like strands. Its the GREATEST! You must try it

Haha, that pic is cute!

I really like Kashi's Go Lean protein powder. It doesn't taste too powdery and the vanilla flavor is good in smoothies!

Missy said...

I noticed your awesome shoulder muscles too! Go girl! Lovely breakfast cookie! I just bought Chocolate Peanut Butter protein powder but can't remember which brand!

I use Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein. It's about $30 from GNC and has about 30 servings. I don't use it every single day, so it lasts me awhile. The Deluxe Milk Chocolate is my favorite flavor so far. I use it mainly in smoothies, I didn't think to add it to a breakfast cookie! I haven't made one of those in awhile...perhaps tomorrow...

I've got to try one of those! They look so good! And like you, I eat the same thing every day. I could use some variety!
