My favorite carbs are oatmeal and fruit! Especially because I love to exercise, and both are gentle on my stomach, and seem to give me the energy I need to get through any workout.

This week I got an email from a follower who printed my 30 days of weight loss meal ideas here. I have 30 days of eggs, 30 days of oatmeal, 30 days of salad, etc. But I actually don’t have recipes for them, as I just am a “throw together everything” kind of girl.

In the email, my new reader asked where all the recipes were, cause she couldn’t find them on the blog! So, I guess it’s time I start making them one by one, for anyone who is interested in actual recipes!

And, she wanted me to start with the Cookie Dough Oatmeal.

GLADLY, Because I love me some cookie dough flavored ANYTHING.

As it turns out, today was the best day to make some oatmeal …Ok, I actually make it every day. But, I ran a 5K this morning with my son, and after a hard run, nothing tastes better to me than oatmeal!

And, I ran my guts out. When I started running 20 years ago, I averaged 11-12 minute miles. Now, at age 47, I ran today’s 5k at 7:39 pace, winning my age group! (read “why I run, and it’s not about weight loss here”)

So, onto my post workout oatmeal! I made it taste like cookie dough by getting that buttery, vanilla, brown sugar flavors.

For this healthy breakfast oatmeal, I used

  • Butter extract- for the buttery flavor.
  • Vanilla extract- because ALL cookies have vanilla, #AMIRIGHT??
  • and some zero calorie golden monk sugar, to taste like brown sugar.
  • And of course, some lily’s sugar free chocolate chips.
  • And while I didn’t use it, I do have some cookie dough flavored Skinny Mix that I could have also added, but I wanted to see if I could get a delicious flavor without expensive ingredients.

I did wait until the oatmeal was cooled, before adding the chocolate chips, otherwise, I would just have melted chocolate flavored oatmeal. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I was going for cookie dough!
