    When you say “old fashioned oats” do you mean steel cut oats?

  2. Avatar mtmomof5 says:

    Old Fashioned Oats are rolled oats. They are thicker than the instant oats. Steel cut oats is the grain all chopped up into bits.

    Can you substitute the bananas With something? I have a strong aversion to the taste or smell of Bananas

  4. Avatar Leslie Bennett says:

    Can I use regular milk and peanut butter???

  5. Avatar alicia says:

    What is a substitute for dates?

  6. Avatar Julie says:

    How about a sub for coconut?

    Serving Size: 1 cookie

  8. Avatar Sabine Stroehm says:

    These look great, thanks!

  9. Avatar Elle says:

    With only two grams each of protein and fiber, how anyone could say these would keep you feeling full for even an hour is beyond me. This sounds more like something to serve after a meal like a dessert, not as part of a main meal (or even instead of breakfast, as the intro implies)!

    • Avatar Eric says:

      I think the idea is to eat a few of them as a meal. Eating 5 of these gives you 10g of both Protein and Fiber for under 400 calories.

      • Avatar Ada says:

        But it does say “serving size – 1 cookie” I think I’d need more than 79 cals to keep me going till lunch.

        • Avatar Eric says:

          Then eat more than 1, duh.

          • Avatar Ada says:

            “Duh?” It is possible to comment without being rude Eric, for an example, see my comment.
            Alternatively the recipe could say serving size = 5 cookies, lets face it MFP users can get pretty hardcore about their ‘diet’ and I could see some eating 1 due to the serving size recommendation.

          • Avatar Eric says:

            I found ur comment condescending, as if I can’t read that it says “serving size 1 cookie”. I clearly saw that, just like you should have clearly saw “Cookie(S) for Breakfast”. Maybe u weren’t being condescending, but if u were or were not, its does not justify me being rude, so I apologize to you.

          • Avatar Ada says:

            I was not being condescending and appreciate your apology. Peace.

        • Avatar Shiva says:

          It also says “cookies for breakfast,” not “cookie for breakfast.”

      • Avatar JofJLTNCB6 says:

        Five of these “cookies” as a meal?!?


        That sounds horrifying.

    • Avatar clubbingabroad says:

      Just add a few scoops of protein powder, thats what I did.

  10. Avatar April T says:

    I’m going to make these tomorrow and sub the dates for cranberries or raisins ….we’ll see I’m hoping I love them 🙂

  11. Avatar Rabbit says:

    Is there anything I can use to sub for bananas? I’m allergic 🙁

  12. Avatar Alex John says:

    As much as the food looks yammy I feel it will help if the ingredients required are easily found in shops like ‘creamy almond butter’ where the hell can I get that from?it would help if you suggest alternatives that as is. And really does bed all those ingredients to have a healthy Oats cookies?

  13. Avatar RubiWax says:

    Eat several of them. What is it with you fitness pal people that you must trash every article on here? Jesus, one serving size is obviously not a meal so eat as many as you think you need… Use your freaking brain for yourselves instead of arting your worthless two cents all over the web? Just a thought. Or add something with the cookie. Eat a banana or yogurt or have a small smoothie with it. Listen to your body and use your critical thinking skills… Or do you need an article to tell you how to do that for you to nitpick at first?

    Again, good article, great idea… Gotta pick up chia seeds but otherwise I’m ready to make these! 🙂

    • Avatar JofJLTNCB6 says:

      You sound angry.

      Are you hungry?

      Here…have a chia oatmeal banana squished round thing. It’s only 79 calories and soooooo filling.

    • Avatar Dr. Whom says:

      Don’t be a jackass. You can disagree or comment without sounding like you were born in a sewer.

  14. Avatar Cheryl says:

    I can’t wait to try these! They have everything I love packed into a sweet package. Love the chia seeds – I wouldn’t have thought to do that. Brilliant!

  15. Avatar Whaea_Deni says:

    What is a substitute for the almond milk – not an ingredient that I keep in my pantry ?? maybe coconut milk??

  16. Avatar SeasideGal says:

    Great recipe! What’s the best way to store these cookies? Outside or inside the fridge? Thanks again for sharing this great cookie!!

  17. Avatar says:

    Eat 4 , 5, 6, or how many of these cookies that you like for breakfast. My biggest objection is that you used the name of God’s Son, Jesus in a manner that is not praiseworthy to Him. We will all be accountable to God someday for the words we have spoken! Please think before you speak! It will be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Avatar Lois Masse says:

    I haven’t tried these cookies, they may be filling, they may not be. They might be worth a try.
    What I do object to is using the name of God’s Son, Jesus, in a way that is not praise worthy to Him!
    The comment below has a lot of good points in it, one being, listen to your body! Our bodies do tell us a lot , if we choose to listen.

  19. Avatar Terri Barnum says:

    These sound delicious, but I’ve never used Chia seeds. I’ve got everything else the recipe calls for. Do I NEED to use the Chia seeds for this recipe to turn out?

  20. Avatar gril lucas says:

    Really cool going to try them!

  21. Avatar mom6mn says:

    Is there a way on MFP that I can favorite recipes, exercises, or blog entries for easy access later?? I see I am given the option to print, but would rather go paperless.

  22. Avatar ScarletFire says:

    These sound amazing. Can’t wait to try them. Never head of Chia before though – hope I can find some in my local shops. Thanks

    • Avatar Ams says:

      They are everywhere these days – Ralph’s, Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, Whole Foods, 99 cent store.

      • Avatar ScarletFire says:

        I’m in the UK. I saw some in Sainsburys actually but they were really, really expensive!

        • Avatar Ams says:

          Yeah, I saw them at the .99 cent store along with hemp seeds. At our store called Sprouts they sell them in the bulk section and you can get as much or as little as you like. How much is shipping something to UK? I could send some to you! Did you check online?

  23. Avatar Bobbi says:

    I have an allergy to coconut what can i use to replace the coconut on recipes?

  24. Avatar LilBird01 says:

    Hi Brittany, thanks for the recipe!

  25. Avatar Susan Jensen says:

    These are absolutely delicious! I just pop one in in-between meals to satisfy a snack craving. They’re so low calorie and healthy. I love ’em. I’ve just made my second batch!! <3
