INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup protein powder (I used Champion Nutrition Pure Whey, Vanilla)
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 packets Stevia

  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup almond milk


DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line baking sheets with foil and spray (I sprayed with coconut oil).
  • In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients, except the almond milk.
  • Add the liquid mix to the large bowl and stir together. Add almond milk and mix well.
  • Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cooking sheet (6 per sheet) and using the back of the spoon, spread them out into large schools.
