Made without any processed sugar or flour, these oatmeal raisin protein cookies are gluten-free, portable and healthy enough to eat for breakfast.
Oatmeal raisin cookies have always been one of my favorites. The funny thing is that before I knew much about healthy eating I thought they were a healthy treat. Raisins = healthy, right? Kind of similar to the high-school me thinking that tortilla chips where healthier than potato chips. I’ve come a long way folks!
That said, I still crave oatmeal raisin cookies every once in a while and I have found that you can indeed make them healthier just by swapping a few ingredients. And that’s exactly what I did to come up with this recipe for oatmeal raisin protein cookies.
These little guys have all the flavor of regular oatmeal raisin cookies, but without any processed sugar or flour. They also have a scoop of protein powder to amp up the protein. They’re vegan, gluten-free, portable and healthy enough to eat for breakfast. Cookies for breakfast = yes, please!
