Brownie Cookies for Breakfast?
What if I told you that you could have a big bowl of delicious brownie cookie cereal and STILL achieve your weight loss goals? Yes, you heard me correctly! If you’re like me and have a huge sweet tooth for anything chocolate, this recipe will quickly become one of your ‘go-to’ favourites!
Since my original cookie cereal recipe, thousands of you have made it and to date it is STILL one of my most popular recipes. Since then I have launched my protein cookie cereal which was for all you babes who wanted the actual cookie to have protein. Now, to add to the collection, I present you with this chocolate brownie cookie cereal of your dreams!
Brownie Cookie Recipe
Obviously, this recipe is one-bowl (I mean honestly, who has time for long recipes that need like 1000 bowls). Something I must say is that this recipe yields a slightly drier cookie (on purpose) because it’s aimed at being a cereal! So, if you’re planning on having it without milk, bare in mind that the recipe was made to be a little drier to absorb the milk! If you’re looking for normal brownie cookies, and not a brownie cookie cereal, you can check out a recipe here.
Storing the Brownie Cookie Cereal
Storing your cookie cereal is SUPER important to keep its texture and consistency. I make to store it in an airtight or sealable contain to retain freshness!
If you want your cereal to last a little longer, you can store a batch in the freezer in an airtight freezer friendly container.
How do you make Brownie Cookie Cereal?
Oat flour: I make my own by blending oats in a high speed blender to make a flour consistency.
Cocoa powder: To make it extra chocolatey
Granulated sweetener of choice: I used a calorie free monk fruit sweetener, but any granulated sugar could work.
Baking soda: To allow your cookies to rise a little
Almond flour: adds a delicious texture & healthy fats to keep you full for longer
Milk of choice: I used almond milk, but you can use any milk of preference
Egg: You can replace this if you’re vegan with a chia seed egg
Vanilla extract: To add that delicious vanilla flavour while not being over powering!
Chocolate chips: optional but highly recommended!
Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl
Roll and press down cookie dough balls onto lined cookie sheet. Bake in oven and allow to cool
Store in an airtight container
