Champion Performance Recipe of the Week - Breakfast Cookie - Competition Diet

Are You a Victim of Sucky Diet Syndrome? Eat a COOKIE!
Diet got ya down? Low carbs, no sugar, no fun? Then it's time you had a cookie. Heck, have one for breakfast. Or two. Yeah, I'm serious! Life's too short for sucky diets! Now before you dive into a bag of Oreos™, let me explain...

One of the things I love most is creating in the kitchen... sometimes my experiments work and sometimes they flop, but this one (you'll be glad to know) is a keeper - Frosted or Unfrosted! These giant treats look like snicker-doodles when they come out of the oven, and taste like banana bread. High in protein and fiber, with a great balance of carbs & fat, they make a terrific breakfast on the run. If you'd like a quick & easy go-to breakfast cookie that won't bust your diet, give these a whirl... and let me know what you think!
