Breakfast Cookie

I like the idea of a quick breakfast. One of the posters on the bariatric tv boards mentioned a breakfast cookie. Taking up the challenge, I came up with this tasty treat. SO easy to make and really a nice, sweet, filling little thing.

3/4 cup applesauce (UNSWEETENED)
1 large egg
1/4 cup almond slivers
1/4 cup UNSWEETENED coconut
1/2 cup chocolate protein powder (I use Nectar Chocolate Truffel)
1/2 cup ground flax seeds (flax meal)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup splenda
Oven - 350 degrees.Toast the almonds and coconut in a small pan on the stove until golden. Set aside to cool.Combine the applesauce and egg, mix well and set aside.Combine the dry ingredients and add the almonds, coconut and applesauce mixture. LET SIT for 5 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone cooking mat. Drop by big spoonfuls onto the sheet. These will cook in the shape they are dropped, so make sure they are a cookie shape, dont mound them up too much. It's a very runny batter. Dont be tempted to thicken it up. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Makes 9 large cookies.Number of Servings: 9
