Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Protein Shake

12 Dec

This week has been crazy. It’s only Wednesday. Oof.

Today I found myself sweaty (usual), starving (usual), and really craving cookies post-workout (not that usual, to be honest). I am also a sucker for oatmeal raisin cookies. Always. FOREVER. So when I say this is practically like the real thing, I not only mean it, but I know what I’m talking about. Just try it for yourself:

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Protein Shake

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup old-fashion rolled oats (I like Bob’s)
  • 2 Tbs raisins
  • 1 Tbs flaxseed meal (Bob’s)
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 scoop ON vanilla whey (also acceptable: AT cinnamon swirl – just omit the cinnamon from this recipe!)

Blend. Just like grandma used to make. If grandma was a muscle head that used to make protein shakes, that is. She wasn’t. She isn’t. This shake reminds me of her though. She used to make oatmeal chocolate chip cookie bars that I still occasionally fantasize about. Seriously. I’m going to ask for those in lieu of a Christmas gift. Grandma and her cookies. LOVE.

Want it thicker? Add half a banana.

Now go get ’em, tiger. For grandmas everywhere!
