Bowl ‘O Oats to Go
Today starts my three days of craziness- early morning, long commuting, conference marathon. You know how much I love my bowl of oatmeal in the morning, but I’m leaving just too early this morning to be ready for all that. I went to this conference last year and ran across the same issue, so I invented my ‘bowl of oats to go’ breakfast cookie.
This way I can take my oats with me in the car and eat them once I’m hungry and on my way to the conference. I whipped up a batch last night. Basically, it’s exactly the same as my normal morning oatmeal, except with a little whole wheat flour and some egg substitute.
1/2 cup plus a little more oat combo (this means oatmeal, wheat germ, flaxseed, cinnamon, nutmeg)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup egg substitute
big glob of peanut butter (just shy of 1/4 cup maybe?!)
sweetener of choice (I use more Splenda or agave if I’m going to eat them as “cookies” rather than breakfast)
pecans or other nuts
(I acutually usually put in a little bit of baking soda and almond milk but I completely forgot in this batch…I’ll let you know how it turns out)
Mix together and form into cookies. Bake 10 minutes at 375.
It’s just like oats- you can add in just about anything!
This are really good topped with a swipe of peanut butter 😉
I wrapped up two cookies to take with me on my ride. They super easy to eat while driving, yet just as filling and nutritious as more normal breakfast.
And of course coffee. No way I’m commuting with no coffee 😉 I’ll be re-filling that immediately upon arrival!
I’m pretty sure they have a light breakfast when we get there too, but you can never be too sure 😉
What’s your favorite on-the-go breakfast?!
