The Frozen Cookie

Yup.  I ate a frozen cookie for breakfast and it was fantastic, the perfect treat for a summer breakfast when you want oatmeal, but don't want something hot.  It's so simple, I could have easily made it in halls.  Except that someone might have stolen it.

Frozen Oatmeal Cookie
makes one big cookie

1/4 cup yogurt (I used emmi coffee)
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp Oats
1 tsp nut butter
optional: any add ins/ons you want!

Take a bowl and mix the yogurt and the oats together.  You want to make sure that the yogurt is quite saturated with oats, throw in a couple more spoon-fulls until it looks creamy, but thoroughly oated.  Then, add in the nut butter and any other add ins you feel like.

Dump the mixture out on a medium sized plate and use a spoon to push it into the plate so it resembles a cookie.  I added a small spoon of almond butter on top afterwards.

Put in the freezer.  I froze overnight, but I'm sure a couple of hours would work just as good.

When getting ready to eat you can either take it out about five minutes before you plan to eat it, or you can just start digging in.  It takes a bit of elbow grease to pry it off the plate at first, but it's so worth it!  There are endless combinations you can do with this too.  Next time I'll probably use greek yogurt, some raisins, cinnamon and maybe a dollop of peanut butter.  Yum!


Un Bacione,
