#LEAN14: single serving oatmeal cookie {dough}.

I don’t know about you, but when about 4pm rolls around, I’m in serious need of an afternoon snack. Sometimes a smoothie or handful of nuts will cut it, but other times I need something that’s more of a treat, while still being at least slightly healthy.

…I found that something.

Single Serving Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Dough

inspired by Fitnessista’s “famous” breakfast cookie

 

ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 1 tbsp melted nut butter (I used almond butter)
  • 2 tbsp milk (I used coconut milk)
  • generous sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp sugar OR sprinkle of Stevia (optional)

 

directions: In a bowl combine oats, flax,cinnamon, sweetener and nut butter as well as you can. Then add the milk to bring it all together. Add the chocolate chips last.

Form into a cookie shape (you can make it big and flat or small and thicker – I prefer the latter), and wrap tightly in saran wrap. Put in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes for it to set a bit.

This really turned out to be the perfect little snack. It’s hearty and filling while satisfying a sweet tooth too. Next time I’m going to switch it up with add-ins like nuts and/or dried fruit.

It could also be great for dessert, or even breakfast!
