Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
My sparkling blog pal, Cindy (from A Sparkle a Day) has been insisting I try this overnight breakfast oatmeal cookie thing. She first got the idea from Alison (of the Mama’s Weeds blog). I have taken long enough to give it a try and she’d probably already given up on me, but I finally got in the mood to try it out. I decided to whip it up “Hemp-Loving Girl” style and got a little crazy with the phrase….
I decided to go green with my first oatmeal breakfast cookie because 1) I have a ginormous container of Hemp Pro 70 to use up and 2) because I don’t have a blender at the moment and need to be creative with using my hemp powder. I’ve already had it in steel-cut oats and a chocolate hemp shake–it was just time to green up the breakfast cookie, I think!
So, what went into my green (hemp) oatmeal cookie?
Raw Chia Seeds
Organic Green Stevia Powder
Hemp Pro 70 Powder
Original Hemp Bliss (Unsweetened)
Goin’ In a Bowl
1/2 cup organic rolled oats
1 tablespoon certified organic (RAW) chia seeds (NavitasNaturals)
1 tablespoon certified organic almond butter
4 tablespoons Hemp Pro 70 powder (www.manitobaharvest.com)
1/2 teaspoon organic green stevia powder (from Navitas Naturals)
6 tablespoons Original, Unsweetened Hemp Bliss (www.manitobaharvest.com)
Note: I didn’t have any nanners
Mashed Into a Cookie
Into the Fridge
I think this is one of the weirdest things I’ve ever eaten. Last night when I put this in the fridge, I was a little worried. I mean a big, green glob of oats smeared flat on a plate just kind of blew my mind a little. I wasn’t sure Raw Juice Girl knew what she was doing–seriously!
Does that mean it was horrid? Nope! After the first few bites, I actually really liked it! It was still weird, though. I mean, it’s weird eating a cold, smashed oatmeal thing on a plate. Don’t ya think? LOL
What I liked is that I tasted the yummy nutty hempness (thanks www.manitobaharvest.com!) and I could taste the sweetness of the organic green stevia powder (thanks Navitas Naturals!) and the oats were soft and chewy. I’m still wondering how it would have turned out if I’d had bananas. I’m definitely going to make this again when I have bananas to see how it tastes then. And, of course, I have all sorts of other combos running wild in my mind!
