Mash the bananas in a big bowl. At all ingredients and mix again. Make sure the dough gets sticky. When the dough is ready make cookies of the dough and put the cookies in the oven for 20 minutes. (180 degrees)

Easy and fast protein breakfast: Overnight oats

  • 70 grams oats
  • 300 ml almond milk (or any milk you like)
  • 1 banana
  • 25 grams protein powder –
  • 1 tea spoon cacao powder
  • 1 tea spoon cinnamon
  • small hands of nuts and dried fruit

Cut the banana in pieces. Put the oats and the almond milk in a glass or a bowl. Add the protein powder, cacao powder, cinnamon and banana. Mix everything. Add the nuts and dried fruit and mix again. Cover the glass or bowl with aluminium foil and put it in the fridge. The next morning your breakfast is ready! If you want you can add some fresh fruit.
