Happy Friday!!! I’m pumped for the weekend!
I started this lovely Friday morning off with Day #1, Week #3 of my interval training (2 minutes walking, 4 minutes running for 30 minutes). Knees are doing really good, which makes me SUPER happy 😀

After seeing the breakfast cookie success Leashieloo had on her blog, I decided it was time for round #2 with the breakfast cookie.
Last night I gathered all my ingredients:
- 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill Extra Thick rolled oats
- 1 tbsp smuckers organic creamy peanut butter
- 1/8 cup unsweetened Almond Breeze Vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 cup Mott’s unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 tsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp sweetened coconut
I was a little hesitant when I combined all the ingredients because it seemed like it was just going to be a big mushy mess. I contemplated making back-up overnight oats, then decided to just pack some extra almond milk so I could make on-the-spot-overnight oats if needed.
Well my worries were valid — my breakfast cookie didn’t turn out like a cookie but more of a mushy mess.
I added a 1/4 cup of almond breeze to the mix to make it more like overnight oats. Overall, I think I’m just not a big fan of the applesauce in the breakfast cookies. Not sure why, but it doesn’t jive with me!
