My First Breakfast Cookie

Good morning! :mrgreen:

I am devoting my morning to WRITING since I haven’t done a damn thing on my book yet. I am making progress today!


I’ve read about Gina’s famous Breakfast Cookie all over the blogs for months now, so I finally decided to give it a whirl myself.

To be honest, as I was making my Breakfast Cookie last night, I kept thinking: how the heck is this going to taste good and fill me up? I had faith in the Fitnessista, so I followed her directions and put my Breakfast Cookie in the fridge overnight to do its thing.

This morning, I was pleasantly surprised with my Breakfast Cookie! 😀 I spread some Barney Butter on top and dug right in. It was SO delicious. It tasted just like regular oatmeal, but much more hearty. I didn’t think the Breakfast Cookie would fill me up like my usual bowl of oats, but man, did it! My stomach is very content right now. 😉


As for my Breakfast Cookie ingredients, I used Barney Butter as the nut butter and I substituted the protein powder for Vega Whole Food Smoothie Infusion, which worked great.

I also drank some Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea with breakfast.

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite recipe from the blog world?


  1. I make a breakfast cookie, too, but mine is baked. Very hearty! My latest was Ginger Apple Oat – perfect for the season!

    Hmmmm…favorite recipe from the blogworld is so hard! I love so many of them. I guess I would have to say Kath’s Smoked Salmon and Parmesan Omelet Muffins! Yum!

  2. Given your love of cookies, I’m surprised this was your first breakfast cookie – now any day can be cookie day 🙂

    Gena’s banana soft serve is a favorite of mine, as are kale chips and Kath’s vanilla sweet potato soup. Oh, and of course nut butter-topped oatmeal! I love getting inspiration from the food blogosphere!

  3. my fave blog recipe is from Kath I think??.. its the overnight oats. I have it down to a science now and have it every moring (weekdays)— I didnt think i’d like cold oats either, but it works!!

  4. I don’t have a particular recipes but I love learning about new things to try out. For example: almond milk, vitatops, pb2, tufu noodles, etc (from hungry-girl)

  5. I’ve always been apprehensive to try the breakfast cookie too. But Maybe I should give it a try. I’m a fan of the green monster blog world creation 🙂

  6. I recently wrote a similar post about my first breakfast cookie also inspired by Gina. Oh and I’m eating one right now. They are delish and much more filling than I’d ever expected. It’s a nice change from my regular hot oats. Big fan of this recipe!

  7. that looks good! i can try one now that i have protein powder!

    my favorite recipe is probably banana oats. I never thought I liked oatmeal until I added banana and PB and now I eat it every weekday. Thanks blog world!!

  8. My favorite blog recipe is overnight oats! I’m addicted!! Two close runner-up recipes are banana ‘soft serve’ and green monsters. I love finding these truly delicious recipes, that are so healthy too! 🙂

  9. Sounds good! I’m not sure what my favorite blog recipe is but I can tell you that my boyfriend LOVES your oatmeal raisin bars!!

  10. My favorite blog recipes are all of the new and interesting things I can put in my oatmeal. I love trying new ingredients and the bloggers never let me down!

  11. I am a HUGE fan of Danica’s homemade healthy pumpkin butter! I can’t eat oatmeal without some mixed in anymore! Also, okra fries that I first saw on Kath’s blog yummmm:)

  12. i love all the new foods i learn about and especially all the tofu recipes…i had no idea how to even begin cooking it before reading blogs!

  13. Ugh I’m so jealous of your Barney Butter and the fact that you can get it everywhere… damn shipping costs and Chicago!!
