Healthy Breakfast Cookie Bar Recipe

These things are absolutely awesome!  Virtually nothing in them that's unhealthy, everything proportioned just right.  The only suggestion I might make is to add some whey protein, just to give it a little more of a muscle building punch.  If I ever get around to experimenting with that I'll let you guys know how it goes.

But anyway, try these things out!  No sugar, and the delicious flavor of oats and raisins.  They're really moist too!


HEALTHY BREAKFAST COOKIE BARS:

Packed with Fiber, Protein, and even a little fruit!

Ingredients:

Serves: 8
Yield:

24
cookies
Units: US | Metric

Directions:


  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. 2
    Crush cereal, and place in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add oatmeal, wheat germ, and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. 3
    In a medium mixing bowl, combine yogurt, applesauce, vanilla, honey, beaten egg, and skim milk powder: mix well to combine.
  4. 4
    Add baking soda and baking powder to the yogurt mixture. Mix well.
  5. 5
    Gradually add the cereal and oatmeal mixture to the yogurt mixture and stir well.
  6. 6
    Add raisins and mix to combine.
  7. 7
    Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the batter and roll it into a ball. Place onto a non-stick cookie sheet, or lined with baking parchment, and lightly flatten.
  8. 8
    Bake at 350°F for 15-18 minutes. Makes 24 cookies.


Oh and by the way I, The Food Guru, did what they forgot to do on the original site, calculate the caloric information!  For one 24th of this recipe (or one cookie bar), it's around 80 calories.  And there's no processed sugar in any of that, just sweet, natural honey!  YUM.

  1. A healthy post could be expected from a Olympic weightlifter. Thanks for sharing this healthy, nutritious and tasty recipe. I think it is not necessary for athletes only to watch their diet but everyone should follow.
