Have you heard of Hungry-Girl?!?
If not you MUST check them out. They have tons of tips and tricks to cut back on your favorite foods, and make them a little healthier, A-LOT less in calories, and still delicious!
OK, so this morning I was eating some cereal, Fiber One if you must know =], and I noticed a recipe on the back from Hungry-Girl for these Grab N Go Breakfast cookies. They sounded really interesting, and I decided to give it a whirl.
Of coarse I added a few tweaks here and there, but they are pretty yummy! They are perfect for a snack after a work out, something to take on a hike, or a "Grab N Go" breakfast when your headed out the door in a hurry.
Tell me what you think? I am assuming you can try different types of flavors/varieties so get creative!
Grab N Go Breakfast Cookies
Recipe adapted from Hungry-Girl
1/4 cup Fiber One Brand Cereal
1/2 Cup Old fashioned oats
1/4 cup + 2 TB Whole wheat flour
1/4 cup Splenda (I used organic vegan cane sugar)
2 TB. Brown sugar (I skipped this, but they definitely would have been a little sweeter with it)
1/2 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon (I added an extra 1/8th tsp nutmeg)
1/8 tsp. salt
2 tsp. sugar free vanilla powdered creamer (skipped this)
1/3 cup pureed peaches (found in baby food isle)
1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin (I used 1 banana)
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (I used 1 egg)

* I also added 1 TB coconut, about 3 TB agave nectar, and I may have added 1-2 TB mini chocolate chips =], as well as 1 TB vanilla, flax seed, and wheat germ.*
1. Preheat oven to 375
2. In a food processor, grind up fiber one cereal until bread crumb consistency. Pour crumbs into a medium bowl. Then add oats, flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. * If you want to add the nutmeg, do that here.
3. In another medium bowl, dissolve powdered creamer in 2 TB hot water. Then add peaches, pumpkin (or your choice of pureed fruit), egg substitute (or regular egg), and mix thoroughly. *If your going to add vanilla do it here*Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.
