When I was in college, I used to walk in to my early morning classes with my coffee cup in hand, but I wasn’t sipping a latte or cappuccino, I was sipping a Carnation Breakfast Essentials drink! To this day, I still enjoy starting off my morning with Carnation Breakfast Essentials, mixed in milk or milk and fruit for a quick and delicious smoothie. Today I’m going to tell you a little more about the breakfast drink I love, and I’m going to share a recipe that uses Carnation Breakfast Essentials in a whole new way. (If the idea of eating cookies for breakfast sounds good to you, keep reading! I have some Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Cookies you will love!)
Carnation Breakfast Essentials powder can be found in the breakfast aisle of your grocery store. It is a convenient breakfast option that mixes up in minutes and is great for taking on the go. The powder comes in great flavors like Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Vanilla, Chocolate Malt, and Strawberry.
And it is also a mom-friendly product, featuring 21 vitamins and minerals, 13 grams of protein per serving, two times the vitamin D of an 8 ounce glass of milk, and two times the calicum of a 6 ounce cup of yogurt.
When I really love a product, I like to think of new ideas for how I can use that product. While I love my morning smoothies, I got to thinking that their must be some way that I can think outside the smoothie cup, and use Carnation Breakfast Essentials for my baking.
Honestly I think the possibilities are endless. You could use it as a mix-in for breads, muffins, pancakes, or even a cream pie! But today I’m going to show you how I used it to make cookies! And these aren’t just any cookies; at just 62 calories and 5.2 grams of sugar per cookie, they are cookies they are a snack you can eat guilt-free. And because they contain bananas and oatmeal, plus Carnation Breakfast Essentials, which is rich in vitamins and protein, they are actually a cookie you can enjoy at breakfast time!
And another great thing about this recipe is that you can easily change it up. Just substitute any of the other flavor varieties of Carnation Breakfast Essentials for the chocolate flavor, and you’ll have a whole new cookie!
