For breakfasts lately, my toddler (and I) have been having oatmeal. I have a recipe from before being broke that was for pb/maple syrup no-bake granola bars. These were so fantastic! I wanted this taste, but there’s no way I could buy maple syrup right now. I revamped the recipe slightly and came up with some sweet (but sugar-free) oatmeal with sunflower butter.
Then, I received some keto cookie dough from a wonderful church food pantry, and the components actually looked pretty similar to peanut/sunflower butter. So I decided to try and substitute the cookie dough for the sunflower butter.
It worked! This recipe is fantastic, filling, high in protein, sans sugar, and since I received the cookie dough for free, it’s pretty cheap!
A full recipe makes 4 1/2 servings (or 3 for me and 3 for my toddler).
To a pot on the stove add:
-2 Tbsp of keto cookie dough (or peanut/sunflower butter)
-2 c of rolled oats
-1/4 c of sugar substitute (Splenda or whatever)
-3 c of water
This is only about 200 calories per adult serving (and after looking at this number, I think the serving size for the recipe might need to go down, but you can decide for yourself), and there are 6+ grams of protein in that amount. That’s really not bad for that amount of calories. Plus, it tastes good! The sweetener adds flavor but no calories. Plain sugar would be a bit cheaper, but it would both add calories and unwanted sugar. For a child’s breakfast, I don’t want to add sugar if I don’t have to.
