Cinnamon Oat Protein Cookies

Are you a cookie monster? I must say, I am rather fond of cookies, especially with a nice cup of tea/ coffee!

One of my all time favourites are cinnamon oat cookies; that comforting blend of oats paired with aromatic cinnamon, peppered with sweet chewy raisins; especially those near the cookie surface that are slightly caramelised upon baking.

So I set myself a challenge to make healthy cinnamon oat cookies. For this, I have used just a little oil, added in ground flaxseed, chia seeds, protein powder and a combination of anti-oxidant rich dried goldenberries in addition to the traditional raisins. The goldenberries are sharp and tangy whilst the raisins are nice and sweet! I have also added some grated courgette; you can never eat enough veggies! You can’t taste the courgette, but it adds moisture, a splash of colour and of course extra nutrition.

These cookies are really simple to make (a one bowl wonder!), quick to bake and also freeze easily, making them great for meal prepping.

They really taste delicious (I think this combo really works and the blackstrap molasses really adds depth of flavour alongside the hum of cinnamon). I like to make a batch in the weekend and defrost one or two to take as healthy snacks at work or before a gym workout.

  1. These look amazing! I can’t wait to try them out. Cinnamon is one of my absolute favourite flavours and I bet these will be delicious. Oats are so great as a cookie base too – they keep you full all day long.
