Meal Prep Ninja Breakfast Cookies

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

These chewy Meal Prep Ninja Breakfast Cookies taste like carrot cake, and are full of wholesome ingredients, fiber, and protein. Plus, they make for an easy breakfast or grab-and-go snack! 

Meal prep is my jam and so are cookies. Any long-time readers remember Cookie Fridays on the blog way back when? I love cookies, but I don’t love starting my mornings high on sugar. So, I created these Meal Prep Ninja Breakfast Cookies that taste like carrot cake (my favorite!), but only have two tablespoons of maple syrup in the entire recipe and are full of fiber, healthy fats, and protein. They’re perfect for an easy breakfast or snack.

What I love most about these cookies is that you can whip them up with the rest of your meal prep ninja plan (seriously, all you need is one mixing bowl), and you can store them in the fridge to have on-hand all week. Oh, the glory of meal prep! They also freeze really well, double win.

These cookies have the best texture, too. They’re chewy from the oats and almond butter with a bit of crunch from the pumpkin seeds. Mmm! I hope you enjoy this simple recipe as much as we do!

  1. This looks great! Do you have a suggestion for a swap for protein powder? I think my 3 year old would like them, but don’t want her to have that ingredient. Thanks!!
