What I Ate Wednesday – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

Happy Wednesday friends! After a brief hiatus, I’m back! This week I’m sharing a fun recipe that I made with my nephew during his visit in August for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies! Quick, easy and kid friendly!

But first, let’s take a quick peek at some of my favorite eats!

Breakfast

Yes, I’m still getting figgy with my cinnamon raisin french toast! I’m taking full advantage of fresh fig season for as long as I can find them in my grocery store. I would love to know if you freeze fresh figs. If you know, drop me a comment below!

 

Morning Snack

This was my first time trying a Peanut Butter Square Bar! It did not disappoint at all! The chocolate coating pairs especially well with the peanut butter and provides just the right amount of cocoa to balance out the peanut without making the chocolate the star of the show. If that’s not enough, Square Bars are soy free too!

 

Lunch

Bringing back one of my classic favorites for chicken and waffles. The recipe is adapted from this one. I stuffed my chicken into a crispy KNOW Better Foods wrap. These wraps are my go to for a quick and easy lunch theses days. The secret to making a crispy wrap is to hang them over your oven rack for about 6-8 minutes at 425 degrees.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies!

I had a blast making these with my nephew! He absolutely loves to help out in the kitchen with measuring, mixing and adding in as many chocolate chips as his aunt would allow! The best part, he had no idea these were healthy for him!

Here’s the recipe! Enjoy!

Dinner

I’m actually pulling up an old picture for this dinner! I’ve been loving using the Explore Cuisine penne red lentil pasta for a quick and easy dinner. With a simple recipe hack from Lil Sipper, just soak your pasta for 45 minutes in water. Soaking gives it the perfect al dente texture without having to boil any water! Huge win and time saver in my book!

Dessert

I confess, I’m still slightly addicted to Low Cow Ice Cream from Simple Truth. It’s not Halo Top or Enlightened by any means but for the price point, it’s quite a deal! Kroger actually had these 2 for $5.00 last week so you know I stocked up!

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

What cookie flavor reminds you of your childhood? What fall cookie flavor are you most looking forward to? Please share – I would love to hear from you!

  1. Yaaaaay, welcome back to posting! Love your eats (especially the figgy one; and yay for ice cream, always), your fabulous cookie recipe (classic done right!); and now onto your questions = 1.) The cookie flavor that reminds me of my childhood is the Little Debbie Iced Gingerbread Men cookies. No shame. 2.) The fall cookie flavor I’m most looking forward to = Sugar cookies (shaped like Christmas Trees, of course) with red & green crystal sprinkles. HAPPY WEDNESDAY, MY DEAR FRIEND! XO

    • Thank you Liz! Wow,you went all nostalgic on me with the Little Debbie gingerbread men- I remember those well! I’m looking forward to sugar cookies too and all holiday flavored cookies! Hope your enjoying your trip! xo

  2. I love all your creations! I need to get my kitchen creativity back! Chocolate chip cookies most remind me of my childhood, my mom still makes the BEST! I’m looking forward to snickerdoodles and pumpkin chocolate chip!!

    I like the Kroger lite ice cream! I’m learning that I crave that and Halo Top with nut butter and Rediwhip nightly!

    • Hey Jenna! Thank you so much! I also have very fond memories of making cookies with my mom too! I’ve been switching back and forth between Halo Top, PROYO and Low Cow since those are the only ones I can find in my area! And yes, nut butter everynight for me too!
