Sunday Food Prep - PB/Oatmeal Cookies

Along with the rest of T-Nation, I know a lot of people are prolly busy in the kitchen today. I threw together this recipe on the fly. They came out great! Obv. you can customize this to whatever macros you need – but the mixing consistency here is perfect. Final result is mild in flavor and a little airy, but does the trick!

  1. Crack eggs in a medium mixing bowl, leaving 1 yolk.
  2. In small mixing bowl, microwave PB for 1 minute.
  3. Add PB to eggs, mix, then add everything else. It’ll seem rather runny at first, but over ~5 minutes as the PB cools and the oats saturate it becomes perfect consistency.
  4. Once it’s well mixed, use a spoon to slap down some blobs onto wax paper on a baking sheet. Makes about 16 cookies (I made 15, whatever).
  5. Bake 25 minutes at 350*.

Almondbutter/peanutbutter: 4 TBS, 720 cal (28/28/64)
Oatmeal: 1/2c 150 cal (5/28/2.5)
Flax: 2 TBS, 80 cal (4/7/8)
Eggs: 4 (1 whole, 3 whites), 145 cal (24/0/4.5)
Baking soda: 1/2 tsp


P/C/F = 61/63/79 or 30%/31%/39%

Total calories = ~1,100*

Thus, 1 cookie (1,000/16) = 70 calories

Of course, you could add whey, honey, dried fruit, whatever… I’d recommend adding a banana, and some Truvia/Splenda if a little bland is not okay.

Anyone else got recipes to share today?
