Oatmeal PB Protein Cookies


What is a better way to start off any Tuesday then with cookies!!

They have oatmeal, peanut butter and greek yogurt in them so they totally qualify as breakfast, right?


My thoughts exactly!




  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (or all-purpose)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup plain or vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 T Agave Nectar
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • OPTION: 1/2 C. Chocolate Chips


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Add all dry ingredients into medium bowl and mix well

Combine all wet ingredients into the same bowl as the dry. Mix well!

OPTION: If you want some chocolate chips in the mix add them here! You can never go wrong with chocolateWinking smile.

Dough will be pretty sticky

Spoon out onto greased cookie sheet and flatten a bit.

Bake for 11 minutes

Transfer to wire rack and let them cool for 5 minutes.



So last night, the twins got into our game bucket and spread MAD GAB cards all over!  I spent the rest of the night gathering them back up but, who can just pick up a MAD GAB card and not try to figure it out? Needless to say, it took awhile to pick them up because I had fun quizzing my friends through text, and Brent as he was cramming some last minute studying into his night.

I know you want to play too so I saved one for you!




Do you eat cookies for breakfast?

Everyone send out super smart vibes to Brent today! He is taking the first of four CPA exams today at noon! He is practically a genius, so I know he will pass with flying numbers. (I say numbers cause that’s all accountants deal with right?!)


  1. maybe these cookies will help me eat away the pain that I'm still feeling from lunge track on saturday. That's right. I'm STILL sore enough I'm walking like an idiot. :)

  2. If I make a batch of cookies, it's almost a guarantee that I will eat them for every meal until they are gone.

    Good luck Brenty Poo! I will light a candle on the mantle for him.
