BLUEBERRY OATMEAL PROTEIN COOKIES (DAIRY FREE)

BLUEBERRY OATMEAL PROTEIN COOKIES (DAIRY FREE)

These Blueberry Oatmeal Protein Cookies make the yummiest breakfast or snack! They're packed with protein with hearty oats and bursting blueberries. You can add a drizzle of almond icing if you're feeling fancy! I love that they're gluten-free and dairy-free, and my kids love the smaller size.

Did you know? Wild blueberries are smaller and richer in antioxidants than common "highbush" blueberries. All varieties of blueberries are packed with nutrients, and 1 cup contains 24% of your daily Vitamin K! Vitamin K helps make proteins that facilitate blood clotting and building bones. (source)

Blueberry Oatmeal Protein Cookies

Recommended protein

Protein recipes are very finicky so it's important to use the protein specified in the recipe (whey, casein, soy, pea protein, etc). For this recipe, I used LIV Body Lean Vegan Protein, a pea isolate, in Oatmeal Creme Cookie. This protein brand has no artificial ingredients and tastes great! It also has added probiotics and organic superfoods. If you'd like to try it out, use my code "SARAHWILKINS" for free shipping on all LIV Body products!

You should be able to substitute another vegan protein or casein, which is also quite absorbent. Just be mindful you might need to adjust the amount of liquid to get a crumbly dough ;)

Other dry ingredients

The other dry ingredients include organic old-fashioned oats, brown sugar sweetener, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. 

I do like to use organic oats because oats are one of the more heavily sprayed crops. Roundup (glyphosate) is used both to repel pests and also after harvest as a "drying agent." Glyphosate is a known endocrine disrupter, altering hormone levels even in small amounts

For the brown sugar sweetener, you can use Truvia Sweet Complete Brown, Sukrin Gold, Lakanto Golden, or Swerve Brown Sugar. Or you can use regular brown sugar if you prefer!

Blueberry Oatmeal Protein Cookies

Wet ingredients

The wet ingredients include unsweetened applesauce, almond butter, vegan butter, and egg white. You can substitute the egg whites for one tablespoon of ground flaxseed mixed with two tablespoons of warm water.

The unsweetened applesauce can be substituted with yogurt, and the almond butter can be swapped for any nut or seed butter. 

I used this expeller pressed, non-GMO vegan butter, but you can swap it for butter flavored coconut oil or coconut butter. 

The pure vanilla extract is optional but delicious!

Blueberries and other add ins

As I mentioned, wild blueberries are smaller, which works great in this recipe! However, you can also use regular blueberries. Either fresh or frozen will work, although frozen tends to bleed into the dough more. You could even use dried blueberries if you like.

The almond icing is super simple! Just combine powdered sweetener, almond milk, vegan butter (or coconut oil), and a couple tiny drops of almond extract.

I hope you love these Blueberry Oatmeal Protein Cookies as much as we did! Here is the printable recipe. I'd love for you to rate and comment below if you try it.

Muffins are always a good idea for breakfast – especially if they’re these Banana Collagen Protein Muffins! These muffins are low sugar, high-protein, and taste like banana heaven. I had to eat as many as I could before the hubby got them all (he was pretty mad about it too). You can make these muffins low fat using unsweetened applesauce, or use buttery spread and walnuts like I did for a more decadent version.
