Energy Cookies

Postby >>>---WW----> » 05 02, 2018 •  [Post 1]

Ever feel like you could use a little lift about the middle of the day on your hunt ? Well, here is a treat that could give you a boost.

Take 4 bananas and squish them up real good

Add 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 2 cups of instant oatmeal, 1/2 cup rasins, 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup of what ever kind of nuts you want.

Mix it all up real well and place them on a sprayed cooking sheet and place them in the oven for 13-15 minutes. I take slightly over a teaspoon of the batter to make about the right size cookie.

This makes around 35 cookies. You can place them in a baggie and put them in the freezer if you want. They are good either fresh or frozen.

Nice! Wonder if a guy could add a bit of protein powder to the mix without screwing up the recipe?

Also, for a little pick me up, throw 3 pieces of caffiene gum and 2 pieces of nicotine gum in your mouth, and chew the crap out of it. Works like a charm.

350* for 13-15 minutes. I suppose you could add protein powder in the mix if you want, or anything else. I like black walnuts in mine. Pecans are good as well.

Any idea if old fashioned oats would work, or does it have to be instant oatmeal?
