What I Ate Wednesday – Lemon Chia Seed Protein Cookies

Happy hump day friends! Lately I have been experimenting with so many new cookie recipes on the weekends. As much as I love chocolate, I also have a weakness for anything lemon. I really don’t discriminate when it comes to sweets. One of my favorite cookie flavors has been Lemon Chia Seed. I’ll be sharing that recipe with you today! 

Before we get to the recipe, here’s a glimpse into some of my favorite eats from last week!

Breakfast:

CARAMEL CHOCOLATE CHIP FRENCH TOAST BAKE

 

My famous Caramel Apple Chocolate Chip French Toast bake (or at least famous in my own mind!) was on the menu last week for breakfast. I made 3 batches to have on hand simply for convenience with all of the travel I had last week.

 

Lunch:

CHICKEN PARMIGIANA OUTER AISLE SANDWICH

 

Chicken Parmigiana Calzone using an Outer Aisle Gourmet pizza crust. I had chicken breasts already prepped in the fridge. On one side of the pizza crust, I added the chopped chicken, pasta sauce and low fat mozzarella. I folded the other side of the crust over and added a bit more sauce and cheese on top. I baked it for 12 minutes in the oven at 425 degrees. Easy to assemble and so tasty!

 

Lemon Chia Seed Protein Cookies

These healthy cookies are so soft and chewy. They’re a lemon lover’s dream! For an extra nutritious boost, I added a tablespoon of chia seeds to the batter. If you don’t have chia seeds, poppy seeds will work just fine for this recipe, but it’s a fun way to add a little extra omega-3 fatty acids to your diet.

Dinner:

BBQ CHICKEN RICE BOWL

 

I am obsessed with rice bowls! My BBQ Chicken rice bowl consisted of jasmine rice, cauliflower rice, portobello mushrooms and asparagus. They are truly the epitome of healthy, fresh and fast. Two of my go to BBQ sauces right now are this one and this one.

 

Dessert:

HALO TOP BIRTHDAY CAKE ICECREAM

 

Halo Top Birthday Cake ice cream for dessert! You have got to try the Birthday Cake flavor! Halo Top has the creamy consistency of ice cream and is sweetened with stevia. I wish I could find it locally. This was well worth the hour long trip to Wegman’s. The things we do in the name of food, right?

That’s it for this week’s roundup. See you back here on Friday!

What is your go to cookie recipe? Favorite cookie flavor? Please share, I would love to hear from you!

  1. I think you should trademark your Caramel Apple Chocolate Chip French Toast bake – it IS worthy of fame! 🙂 And of course I love the Outer Aisle Gourmet lunch, rice bowl dinner, the Halo Top (I’m lucky I can find all flavors locally now, but I used to order them online from icecreamsource.com), and your FABULOUS cookie recipe! Lemon is definitely a flavor I love as well (hellooooo Lemon Quest bars and OhYeah ONE bars 😀 ). My favorite cookie flavor of all-time though is White Chocolate Macadamia Nut. I’d love to see you make a cookie recipe with that flavor in the future, if you like those flavors too! Happy Wednesday xo

    • Hi Liz! Happy Wednesday to you! White Chocolate Macadamia Nut is definitely one of my favorites too! I wonder how I could make a healthy version- sounds like a new challenge for me!! I agree – I love the lemon Oh Yeah One protein bars too! Great flavor! Have an amazing day! xo

  2. Could I substitute protein for the quest multipurpose mix?

    Lol! I travel an hour for halo top too! Still can’t find the bday flavor though!

    • Hi Megan! Yes, I would go with using a whey/casein blend- it bakes better than just straight whey. PEScience is one other protein powder that I LOVE baking with! Halo Top is definitely worth the drive! I’m still searching for the Mint Chip!

    • Hi Jody! Somehow I knew the #cookieQueen would approve! Thanks for checking out the recipe! xo
