Karen, of Bitter-Sweet Diabetes , Lorraine of This is Caleb, and Elizabeth, of Pieces of My Life came together to host D-Feast Friday today, where Diabetic bloggers are encouraged to post a recipe that works well with their meal planning, insulin giving, carb counting life with Diabetes.

The Protein Cookie is my current breakfast of choice! I first came across it on The Fitnessista's Blog. (A daily read that I LOVE!). Her blog is full of inspiring ways to eat and live a healthy life. Follow her and read about her own journey to health...along with other "food & fitness" bloggers I have listed on my blog roll.

This "cookie" keeps me full and satisfied and for some reason DOESN'T raise my blood sugar like a traditional bowl of oatmeal typically does.

The following recipe is how I make it, but it can be totally re-customized to fit your health needs and specific tastes.

Here goes...

Pour following DRY ingedients into a bowl:

and finally...
To dry mixture & add:
If you follow the recipe I just showed, using the same measurements and brands, you will get 34 grams of carbs.
Mix it up and add whatever you like, dark chocolate, 1/2 mashed banana, coconut, chia seeds...
The possibilities are endless!

I like to make 7 of these on a Sunday afternoon and I'm set for breakfast for the week!
Happy Friday...and Happy D-Feasting!!!


  1. impressive, girl! see you for lunch today - cant wait!!!

  2. How unique! I love that the ingredients can be modified to your taste. Great contribution to DFeast Friday! Thank you!

  3. holy moly I think you just introduced me to my new favourite breakfast.

  4. This really is a great breakfast...especially if you like experimenting. The key is to keep it in the fridge overnight (or at least for 2 hours). The milk softens the oats.

    You can make it on a plate...and it will look more like a "cookie"...but I recomend eating it with a spoon.

    Ilene: see ya soon!

    thisiscaleb: thanks for commenting...and for setting this D-Feast up!

    Scully: enjoy and let me know what you think!

  5. Mmmmm, that sounds so yummy!! And I love that you mix it all up the night before and it's ready and waiting in the morning!!

    Thanks for the D-Feast shout-out, but I want to mention that Elizabeth of Pieces of my Life and Lorraine of This is Caleb were the main forces behind D-Feast Friday. I just helped out a bit too. :)

  6. Thanks Karen...I'll add them to the post now!

    Thanks for all you do for the DOC :)

  7. Ooh, this looks so good! Kind of like oatmeal cookie dough, which is my favorite raw cookie dough... :) I'm going to have to try this. (I have NONE of these ingredients, other than the oats and flax seed...but it looks almost worth a shopping trip!)

  8. I keep seeing this on her blog and others, yet somehow I have yet to try it; I have no idea why - anything with the word cookie has my name written all over it!

  9. OKAY, I finally got around to trying this just this morning. It was everything my heart desired!! I have a special place for breakfast and I'm very picky. This is fantastic. I will be making it daily from now on. OH so tasty, filling, satisfying and HEALTHY! THANK YOU!!

  10. Scully...glad you enjoy it! It's really the only thing I can eat in the morning that doesn't screw with my numbers.
    Let me know if you come up with any good combinations or flavors of it!
