Have you ever tried eating your eggs or oatmeal while driving? Not an easy task! There are days when I know I need to make something that is portable and preferably fit in my purse. Here is just one example of what I have done on these days.
1. For the banana raisin cookie: In a bowl, mix 35 grams of ground oats, 15 grams protein powder, 10 grams raisins and 2 grams of sugarfree fatfree pudding mix(banana flavored)
2. Add 20 grams whole oats, 2 tablespoons of water and mash the batter into a thick consistency.
3. Put into the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes.
4. Take out of microwave, flip the cookie and put it back for another 30 seconds.
5. For the flapjacks: In a bowl, mix 10 grams protein powder, 1 egg white, 2 grams sugarfree fatfree pudding mix and 1 tablespoon sugarfree chocolate syrup.
6. Add 20 grams of oats, 3 egg whites and around 3-4 tablespoons of water to make a batter of pancake consistency.
7. Heat a skillet and add the mix to the skillet. Cook for 2-5 minutes and flip to other side and cook.
8. Serve as a quick breakfast or snack on the go.
TIPS: Consume the cookies the same day. The pancakes can be frozen and eaten again later. Just put them in the toaster oven to avoid them getting mushy.
Being a military wife, I have become a 'single mom' for half of our marriage. You are probably wondering what that has to do with breakfast on-the-go right? Well, if you are anything like me, kids come first which leaves me last. I find that if I am not prepared and manage my time, cooking things like my eggs and oatmeal in addition to having time to eat them becomes nearly impossible. Or at least it seems that way.
My plan calls for 40g oatmeal, 6 eggwhites, and 35g berries. Now I could always make a mini loaf, but I wanted to have a pancake. I have really become addicted to these GINORMOUS pancakes. And who wouldn't want a cookie for breakfast? Cookies and pancakes for breakfast sounded like a plan to me.
