Oatmeal raisin cookies are my absolute favorite, so, of course, I had to find a healthier way to eat cookies for breakfast, haha. This Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Breakfast Bowl recipe features 2 hidden ingredients with major health benefits. I snuck both quinoa and Vital Proteins collagen into this yummy breakfast.
QUNIOA: I added this into the carb mix because it’s actually a complete protein, quinoa contains all nine essential amino acids AND it has a ton of fiber which is very important for gut health
VITAL PROTEINS COLLAGEN: I mixed in 2 scoops of collagen into this too (it’s unflavored so you can’t taste it). There are so benefits of collagen- my favorite are for hair, skin and nails health, joints (super helpful because I’ve been doing more running and high intensity workouts) and it adds a good amount of protein to the meal!
