I love breakfast. Every single morning. I was talking to my best friend the other day and she said she couldn't remember the last time she had breakfast - I can't remember the last time I did NOT have breakfast! Coffee then protein shake almost every morning.  My health club in Arkansas made a shake, No Bake Cookie, that I loved. So I recreated it.

1scoop of protein
1/4 cup of oatmeal
1 cup almond milk (you can use regular milk or water)
1tablespoon almond butter ( you can use peanut butter)
1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Blend very well and enjoy!

Ninja blender, oats, almond breeze, cocoa,
 almond butter (clear container on bottom) chai seeds (clear container on top)

This shake has around 300 calories and is high in protein and fiber. The combination of the high protein, fiber, complex carbs and omega 3's will keep you full! Plus who doesn't want to start the day with a chocolate shake?!? (other then my husband, I don't understand)

The secret ingredient? CHIA SEEDS! I love them. Check out the benefits.

Chia seeds can purchased at any health food store or nicer grocery store (whole foods, trader joes, earth fare, etc)

Hope everyone has a great Friday and it's not as cold where you are as where I am! With windchill -3 this morning!! Brrr


  1. Sounds yummy! I guess I would need to go to the Ozark Natural food store to fid the Chia seeds... Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I'm sure they would have them - probably in the bulk section
