Baked Apple Breakfast Cookies

It has been a long day..

As such, after arriving home from a 12 hour stint at school the thought of perfecting my research presentation for tomorrow was baked in the oven next to a healthy “cookie” experiment that had been on my brain all day. Apple cookies and taper talk.. how did I get anything done today!?

Baked Apple Breakfast Cookies

The start of plenty more edible taper tantrums to come!

Adapted from this recipe


1 mashed banana

1 chopped apple

1 tbs coconut oil

1/2 tbs vanilla

1/2 c oats

1/3 c wheat bran

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tbs flax

2 tbs chia

1 scoop Vanilla Sun Warrior (or other protein powder)

1 tbs cinnamon

splash of almond milk and scoop of plain Greek yog

Melt coconut oil in a bowl, mash in banana, apple and vanilla

Add all dry ingredients.. mix well

I then added a splash of almond milk and a scoop of Greek yogurt for consistency – apple sauce would’ve been money here!

Spoon into balls and bake at 350 degrees for 10 mins


Who said “cookies” need sugar, eggs, butter or syrup!?


I’m off to sleep.. I have a hot date with Yasso and the West Park track tomorrow.. last one!
