Good Night

What a great night! After my workout and a shower my future FIL handed me a glass of red wine (thank you!) and since the future MIL had been given 11 overripe bananas for moi to work some magic on, I got busy. My favorite way to bake is with music and a red wine in hand 🙂

I’m quite proud of myself. I made the following tonight:

Double batch of these easy  Banana Oat Cookies . Check out the recipe, they were a cinch. Though I only got 30 cookies out of it instead of 4 dozen, but I like to make fatty sized cookies!

I made my usual Vegan Banana Bread and again added coconut and chocolate chips. Always a hit.

But the pride of my night were the cookies I just made up! My FMIL is a fit fitness lady and so I thought maybe I could find a protein bar type cookie to make her that included her protein powder and she requested no sugar added. I perused a few protein cookie recipes but none were exactly what I wanted so I just thought I’d give my own recipe a go.  And it worked!


Look at these babies! This gave me 12 protein cookies.  Here’s what I did

Banana Protein Cookies

  • preheat oven to 180C (about 325F – remember I’m in Oz)
  • in a medium bowl mash 2 bananas
  • add 1.5 cups oats, vanilla, 4 scoops protein powder, 2 whole eggs, cinnamon, chia seeds and chocolate chips
  • drop in cookie form on a prepared cookie sheet (I used baking paper instead of oiling the sheet)
  • bake about 20 minutes or until firm



It’s not exact, I never measure cinnamon, chia, vanilla or chocolate chips, I just put some in until it looks/feels right.  I tasted half a cookie – half because I’d had 2 of the other cookies and I’m full as all hell. It was good though, some people might want to add sweetener, they’re not super sweet but they’re a thick consistency.








Oh and just prove I don’t ALWAYS wear workout clothes I managed to take two pictures of me in something other then yoga pants and a sports bra. It just so happens I only take these pictures in the bathroom. Oh well! Here you go, toilet paper and all:

 I heart Baddies 🙂








 a dress AND boots?! Fancy!

  1. I had a mashed up banana in one of my oatmeal/PB bowls yesterday, so those cookies sound like my sorta munchies (maybe add some PB hehe). And I need to up my protein, so they really should be in my diet!

    • a lot of the recipes I found online added PB actually! I am tragically allergic to nuts and therefore all the fab nutbutters. But adding it would really up the nutrition and most likely taste. I wonder if you could take out the egg then? You’re oatmeal bowls look heavenly

  2. ohhh these look great! i’m always on the prowl for new protein recipes – especially treats! fellow sweat ambassador stopping by!

    • Try them! They were good, but not very sweet. If I do them again I might add some honey…. I love our Ambassador blog love!!! Thanks for sweating with me 🙂
