No-Bake Cookie Oatmeal

Sweet tooth is my middle name, and I have no shame. If cookies were a socially acceptable meal, I would eat them for one… and I know I am not the only one!

A giant, warm bowl of no-bake cookie….oatmeal? Yup.

I have oatmeal nearly every morning. It’s a great course of complex carbs, which keep you full a lot longer than simple carbs- such as a sugary cereal or white toast. The flavor of a bowl of oatmeal is super easy to change up by adding whatever mix-ins your heart desires that day and protein can be easily added.

For this recipe I added some natural peanut butter for healthy fats and an egg white for an extra protein punch, making it an very well-rounded breakfast.

Joe may have looked at me a little strange when I brought this chocolate concoction to the couch at 8am — don’t judge.. it was a lazy day! But as they say these days “Sorry not sorry” (I am a grandma in a 20-something’s body….)
