Thanks to The Soulfull Project for sponsoring this delicious post!
I am dubbing this the week of quick and easy recipes! We had a 3 ingredient side dish recipe on Monday and now I’m hitting you with a NO BAKE cookie recipe. So yummy and simple.
But before I get to the recipe itself, I have something important to share with you regarding the ingredients.
You all know I love supporting ‘companies that care’ (in fact I used to feature them weekly on the blog!)…basically companies that give back with the products they sell or the business they conduct. The Soulfull Project is one of those companies!
Launched in August 2016, The Soulfull Project Brand works with local food banks to donate one serving of their 4 Grain Hot Cereal Blend for serving sold. Since then, they’ve donated over 42,000 servings of nutritious, delicious hot cereal to Food Banks across the country. Pretty amazing in my opinion!
They even work with my LOCAL food bank-Food Bank of WNY! So when I went and purchased some of their products at my local Wegmans store, 6 servings of hot cereal were donated right in my region! I love that. Giving back with great tasting food.
Today I’m sharing a breakfast cookie recipe I made using their Brown Sugar Pecan Multigrain Hot Cereal! They’re no bake, super easy to make (just some simple mixing together is all that’s needed), and they have the most delicious soft texture. Full of nutrients to keep you satisfied and nourished at the start of your day.
- 1 container The Soulfull Project Brown Sugar Pecan Multigrain Cereal
- 1 tbsp coconut flour
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder, 30 grams (I used vanilla Nuzest)
- 2 tbsp natural pecan or almond butter
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- ¼ cup non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
- Line a plate with baking paper and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cereal, coconut flour, cinnamon and protein powder and mix well.
- Stir in the nut butter and maple syrup until a crumbly mixture is formed. Using a tablespoon at a time, add non-dairy milk until a thick batter is formed. Using your hands, form into 3 GIANT rounded cookie shapes and enjoy immediately or refrigerate for one hour for best taste.
This recipe makes 3 GIANT cookies. Who wouldn’t want to eat cookies for breakfast!? They’re also vegan, gluten-free, and high in plant-based protein. You get all the carbs, healthy fats, and protein you need in your morning meal. Plus, they’re great for taking on the go or for extra busy mornings. 🙂
Be sure to check out your local Wegmans to buy The Soulful Project hot cereals and your purchases will benefit your regional food bank! The cups come in awesome flavors like: Cinnamon Spice, Blueberry Almond, Brown Sugar Pecan, and Tart Cherry…so you’re sure to find one you like!Stay connected:Subscribe to Healthy HelperFacebook: Healthy HelperTwitter: @Healthy_HelperInstagram: HealthyHelperPinterest: Healthy_HelperBloglovin’: Healthy HelperGoogle+: Healthy HelperTumblr: Healthy Helper BlogSnapchat: KailaProulxWant to get FREE products for review and make money as a blogger?
