Banana Pumpkin Breakfast Cookie with Raisin Carrot Cake Oatmeal (MyOatmeal)

in Breakfast, Other

overnight oats original 2yRemember my post for Cinnamon Graham Overnight Oats that I shared with you all a few weeks ago?  I created the concoction using my Cinnamon Graham Steel Cut Oats from MyOatmeal.com, which they graciously sent me a little while ago.

myoatmealYay for free oatmeal, especially when it is oatmeal that I personally created!

As I mentioned in my last past, MyOatmeal is a company that enables you to create your own personalized oatmeal.  You simply choose your type of oats, add in your favorite flavor and/or sweetener, and select additional add-ins (nuts, seeds, fruit), if desired.  I love my Cinnamon Graham Steel Cut Oats creation, but I REALLY love my other variety that I built: Raisin Carrot Cake Oatmeal, which contains multi-grain oats, flax, carrot cake flavoring, and dark raisins.

This is what I made with my personalized Raisin Carrot Cake Oatmeal:

Banana Pumpkin Breakfast Cookie with Raisin Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Servings: Makes 1 cookie

Ingredients

1 banana, cut in half
1 1/2 TB canned pumpkin
2/3 cups of oats (I used my Raisin Carrot Cake Oatmeal, but you could use plain)
1 packet Truvia, or other natural sweetener or sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp chia seeds (I used milled chia seeds)
1/8 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
nut butter, optional

Directions

1. Mash half of banana in medium bowl.

2. Add remainder of the ingredients and stir until well-combined.

3. Scoop the mixture onto a plate and flatten with a spatula into the shape of a large cookie.

5. In the morning, remove the plastic wrap, cut up the remaining half of the banana to put on top (I kept mine in a sealed baggie overnight), and top with your favorite nut butter, if desired.  I chose peanut butter!

breakfast cookie 5 y editedAre you drooling yet?  Because I am.  This was SO good.  I seriously cannot wait to make it again for breakfast this coming week.

Like I mentioned above, you can use regular oatmeal, but I must say that the addition of the carrot cake flavoring and the raisins was divine.  I am really enjoying coming up with all sorts of breakfast creations to make with my MyOatmeal oats!

It may not officially be Fall, but I am in full on pumpkin mode.  You can definitely expect to see plenty more where that came from!

    This looks amazing. Oh how I am now going to get into fall mode too. Thanks. I will bust out my first can of pumpkin tomorrow morning, so I can enjoy some pumpkin oats.

  • healthnutjulie September 8, 2013, 7:52 pm

    I’m seriously drooling right now! This looks incredible!

  • makingthymeforhealth September 8, 2013, 10:53 pm

    Um, yeah. I am drooling. It sounds so yummy and I love how easy it is to make!

  • swissfitchick September 9, 2013, 1:25 am

    Thank God I JUST had oatmeal for breakfast! Though I wouldn’t mind adding this as a second round, looks delish!

  • Jan @ Sprouts n Squats September 9, 2013, 3:01 am

    Carrot cake oatmeal? OMG Yum I wish we could get that oatmeal here. That breakfast cookie sounds great too.

  • Ashley September 9, 2013, 9:20 am

    I love breakfast cookies! This sounds delicious – especially with the pumpkin! And carrot cake oatmeal? yum!

  • Alexis @ Hummusapien September 9, 2013, 9:51 am

    That custom oatmeal sounds like the best idea ever! And I love eating oats in the form of a cookie–yum!!

  • Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl September 9, 2013, 10:05 am

    I saw this on FB and I’m definitely drooling!! What a perfect fall creation!

  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog September 9, 2013, 11:29 am

    Looks tasty! I love the concept of MyOatmeal. It reminds me of buying out of the bulk bins at Whole Foods. There’s just something about knowing you created the product you’re eating.

  • Nicole @ FruitnFitness September 9, 2013, 11:55 am

    Oh this sounds wonderful and easy!! It sounds like a super simple breakfast to make the night before and doesn’t even require cooking. Carrot cake oats sound awesome all on there own too!

  • Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes September 9, 2013, 12:26 pm

    Full pumpkin mode is where I’m at, too :) Although it’s hard for me to let go of summer! Loving the carrot cake flavoring in this oatmeal.

    • cleaneatingveggiegirl September 9, 2013, 2:14 pm

      I was loving Summer, but now I am ready for some Fall weather…and of course all things pumpkin!

  • Runner Girl Eats September 9, 2013, 1:53 pm

    I need this ASAP! Thanks for giving me something new to try/love :)

  • eatgreatbegreat September 9, 2013, 2:08 pm

    Oh my goodness! I have got to make this asap! This is totally my kind of breakfast! Where did you find the raisin carrot cake oatmeal?

    • eatgreatbegreat September 9, 2013, 2:10 pm

      Ooop…never mind….answered my own question! ;-) Can’t wait to check out My Oatmeal’s website.

  • moderngirlnutrition September 9, 2013, 6:20 pm

    This is probably what I would have picked! Yum!

  • foodiecology September 9, 2013, 7:16 pm

    Yum, this is my kind of breakfast! I love how basically anything can be created with oatmeal. I’m dying to break out the pumpkin (still have a can from last year) and will probably use it in something oat/breakfast -related.

  • Melanie @ Beautifully Nutty September 10, 2013, 10:46 am

    Num! I love this idea! I always get into breakfast ruts where I make the same thing over and over each morning. This could definitely help keep me out of a rut!

  • Fitcupcaker September 11, 2013, 8:00 am

    wow, I thought this would be baked, but refrigerated is even better!

    • cleaneatingveggiegirl September 11, 2013, 1:05 pm

      I LOVE my oats cold :).

      • Fitcupcaker September 11, 2013, 1:40 pm

        I love overnight oats too! Now that its getting more fall-ish weather Ill prob eat them warm alot but cold is good too!

  • Leigha @ Minougirl December 23, 2013, 10:27 am

    Made this today with a couple changes… I’ll tell you when I post the recipe! (linking back to yours, of course) :)
