Breakfast Cookies
(from Frantic Family Cookbook)

1 cup brown rice crisp cereal (like Rice Krispies, usually available in health food stores)
1/3 cup oatmeal
2 Tbsp. bran cereal, your choice
2 Tbsp. powdered milk
2 Tbsp. peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 Tbsp. honey (CAUTION: Some experts say honey shouldn’t be consumed by babies under 12 months; others urge you to wait until the child is 3.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, blend together dried cereals, oatmeal and powdered milk. In a smaller bowl, blend peanut butter, vanilla, egg and honey together, mixing well. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add wet, incorporating well. Drop big spoonfuls of dough on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until edges begin to brown slightly.

Makes 10 servings. Per serving: 70 calories; 3g total fat; (33% calories from fat); 2g protein; 10g carbohydrate; 20mg cholesterol; 57mg sodium.

I will be cooking these tomorrow and I am going to make some slight alterations to this recipe.  I think I can make it even healthier and yet sweeter.

    Mmm, these actually sound really delicious! Thanks a lot now, I’m hungry all of a sudden. Seriously!

    So did you try these? How were they?

  2. “So did you try these? How were they?”

    Haven’t got around to making them. Will be making them this weekend and reporting on their taste. Also, I will be doing some posts on protein bars soon.

    Here’s one for dinner, low in fat & cholestrol

    Brown chicken pieces, skinned & boned if preferred, in small amount of olive oil. Take out chicken, drain oil. Replace chicken, then add 2 cans chopped, seasoned tomatoes with the juice. Cook over low heat til the chicken is done. Serve over rice. Broccoli on the side is nice with it.

    Here’s a great low-carb, high-protein snack,

    First, here’s the ingredients and instructions as I found it, I outline how I changed it below:
    3/4 cup pecan meal
    3/4 cup almond meal
    1/4 cup walnut pieces
    2 whole omega-3 eggs plus 2 whites, beaten (I changed this, see below)
    6 scoops vanilla whey
    1/4 tsp salt
    Splenda, to taste (optional)

    To make the pecan and almond meal, process the nuts in a blender. Mix everything together in a large bowl and continue stirring until all of the ingredients have mixed together thoroughly. Spread the dough into an 8×8-inc aking dish, coated with olive oil cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes at 350-degress F.

    Prep time – 15 minutes
    Servings 6

    These changes will affect the nutritional info above so that’s just guidelines if you modify the recipe like this.

    1) I used the Banana Cream protein powder from Biotest.
    2) Instead of 2 eggs and 2 whites, I used 3 eggs and 1 white.
    3) I added 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract.
    4) Added 1/2 cup of Splenda.
    5) Baked for 12 mins instead of 15.

    Mmmm, enjoy

  7. You used Splenda eh? Otherwise it sounds tasty.

    You might want to try this out…

    It tastes MUCH better than Splenda, no after taste, and lots of fiber.

  8. Stiletto says:

    There is a substitute for Splenda? That’s like one upping the King!

  9. rjtumble says:

    Aha! I have tried that but I stored it in a container and forgot the name of the product, which meant i couldn’t order more of it. That was very frustrating.

    I agree that has a much better (i.e. no) after taste. This is the closest thing I’ve found to sugar. I did have a couple of issues with it. One, it didn’t seem to have quite as sweet a taste as other products, which mean I needed to use more of it. Two, at $22/pound it’s kind of pricey. I liked having it around for a few special occasions like making the protein bars above but I wouldn’t use for an every day sweetener.

    One other thing I noticed about it is that it’s a very fine product. One the one hand, this makes it great for baking and other areas where a nearly powdered sugar is desired. On the other, if you want/need that granular texture, this can be a negative.

    Overall, I agree with you and recommend it. I’m glad you mentioned it, since now I can go buy some again.

    One great use for this is to make sugar free peanut butter cups. OH…MY…GOD. I use sugar free dark chocolate, natural PB (Cruncy, of course) and this stuff. It’s fantastic. I’ll pass that on if anyone’s interested.

  10. Yeah, please do post the recipe for sugar free peanut butter cups.

  11. Angie says:

    What happened to those peanut butter cups?

  14. Mikaella says:

    Thanks for sharing the low-calorie, high-protein snack with us. I’m a regular reader of your blog. Waiting to get more healthy recipes

    A note to rjtumble and his Splenda….
    Splenda (aspartame) is BAD for you. REALLY bad for you. Read this: and If you’re looking for a sugar substitute try Xylitol or unrefined cane sugar/evaporated cane juice.
    So are you (totaltransformation) trying to get onto the Ninja Warrior TV show, or just looking for fitness?

  16. Well Livvy, I am not entirely sure how bad Splenda is for your health, but I do know it has a terrible after-taste. Around our house we often substitute sugar with Sweet Perfection

    And yes, I am trying to get on Ninja Warrior. However, I am also trying to get fit. You can’t do the former without achieving the latter. Thanks for dropping by.

  17. Livs says:

    Well good luck on your Ninja-ness 🙂 That’s pretty sweet, I’ve seen the show/podcasts and it looks amazingly tough!
