Oh sprinkles.

How you take my (already lacking) masculinity away from me even further. 

When I first made this recipe, it looked like plain, pale coloured cookies. Delicious, but had I shown you them, you’d never have guessed they tasted like vanilla cake batter

Let’s use real life examples here. 

My friend Lauren- 

“How do you know your soft serve is vanilla flavoured?”

“Because it’s white. It also MUST have sprinkles”

My friend Luke- 

“How do you know your cake is vanilla flavoured?”

“Because I bought it and it said vanilla on it. It also has sprinkles”

My sister-

“How would you know those muffins are vanilla flavoured?”

“I like chocolate muffins.”

Thanks Niki. You’ve once again proved to be as useful as decaffeinated coffee.

 To distinguish these breakfast cookies as vanilla, I needed to add sprinkles. So be it. I’m fine with that, as long as you don’t make comments like “It’s great seeing little Indian girls who blog.” That still stings. I also still need to get a hair cut. 

Back to this recipe. As mentioned last week, I’m going to (try to!) share one no bake single serve cookie or breakfast cookie dough recipe a week. I asked on Facebook two weeks ago between this recipe and today’s and the former was clearly victorious. I recently put forth the same question pitting today’s recipe versus a spin on this healthy apple and cinnamon rice pudding, and voila- You ask, I deliver (virtually). 

Let’s talk about these  healthy No Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Breakfast Cookies. These have the taste and texture of cake batter (just like my all time favourite oatmeal) minus the usual ingredients- Butter, flour, sugar and raw eggs. Like all my other no bake recipes, these have a healthy makeover- Without sacrificing on taste! They are high in protein, sugar free (if you omit the sprinkles which I completely support!), gluten free and vegan. They take 10 minutes to whip up, or less than 8 (if you omit the sprinkles which I once again, completely support). This is also single serving and make at least three, giant cookies so no excuses for being unsatisfied here.

Confession- While they can be eaten in cookie form, I love adding an extra bit more milk to make it like an actual thick batter and just eat it with a spoon. Sue me. (Please don’t)

Whether you want it in batter form or cookie form- I won’t judge. Make these healthy No Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Breakfast Cookies and start your morning off like you’re eating dessert…Healthy style.

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup gluten free oat bran
  2. 1/4 cup gluten free oat flour (gluten free rolled oats ground to a flour)
  3. 1 scoop vanilla flavoured protein powder*
  4. 1-2 T sweetener of choice**
  5. 2 T mild tasting nut butter of choice (I used cashew butter and coconut butter)
  6. pinch sea salt
  7. 1/4 tsp vanilla essence/extract
  8. 1/4-1/2 cup dairy free milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)***
  9. Sprinkles (optional)
Instructions
  1. Line a large plate with baking paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat bran, oat flour, protein powder, sea salt and mix well. Add the nut butter of choice and mix through until the batter is very crumbly.
  3. Add the vanilla extract/essence and using a tablespoon, add the milk of choice until a very thick batter is formed. Stir through sprinkles and form into three to four large balls and place on the lined plate. Press firmly into a cookie shape and top with extra sprinkles.
  4. Eat immediately or for a firmer cookie (and ones which can be portable and left at room temperature), refrigerate or freeze for at least 30 minutes.
Notes
  1. * If you use an unflavoured protein powder, up the vanilla essence to 1/2 teaspoon and ensure you add the sweetener of choice
  2. ** If you're protein powder isn't overly sweet or you want a very sweet cookie, add the sweetener of choice.
  3. *** Depending on the protein powder you use, you may need more or less liquid. Different vegan blends react differently.
  4. If not strictly vegan, I'd recommend using a casein or blended protein powder
  5. Cookies can be kept at room temperature

Do you associate vanilla cake with sprinkles?

What is your typical ice cream topping?

  1. Sprinkles are never optional….and omg…my recipe tomorrow is show casing my new found love for sprinkles….which after high and low I FINALLY found gluten-free, vegan, SOY-FREE sprinkles! The food gods say from the heavens. Sprinkles are a wonderful thing <3

  2. I should probably be shunned- I actually never have liked sprinkles! Don’t get me wrong though, every year during the classic Christmas cookie decorating I load those babies up with so many sprinkles that they end up burning! All in the name for color, I say.

  3. Not going to lie- I usually hate sprinkles but this post has changed my mind…never have food pictures made me smile so much but the sprinkles did the trick for this post! Vanilla is my go-to ice cream flavour and while I’m okay to eat it on its own, I would definitely not turn down toppings like crushed Oreos, Smarties, cookie dough bits, Reeses Pieces & flaked almonds. Thanks Arman, now I’m craving a bowl of ice cream despite the fact that I’m sitting next to a radiator!!

  4. Is it weird if I’ve never been a big sprinkle fan? Sure they look good, but the flavor is nonexistent so I always went for things like chocolate chips or peanut butter clusters. Either way, these DO look fancy with the colorful specks on top so I support the decision. They look delicious and I would eat all six. I mean three….double batch?

  5. Oh em gee, cake batter! <3 <3 <3 These look all sorts of amazing! <3 (I may be slightly biased because I kindasorta love cake-batter-anything. Yay for quick + 1-bowl recipes too! :] I need to try making this once I get my hands on milder-tasting nut butter! :O

  6. Cookies for breakfast?! That’s my language you’re speaking..can we be friends?! But, seriously, these look absolutely delish! I also love that they’re no-bake and ready in minutes. Vanilla cake reminds me of colorful sprinkles, buttercream frosting, and birthdays! Such happy thoughts:) Thanks for brightening my day!

  7. I associate vanilla cake with my face, because that’s where it’s going. But yes, sprinkles are very much encouraged. Now I really want a Mr. Softee vanilla cone dipped in rainbow sprinkles.
    *sigh* I really appreciate that you develop so many recipes for cookies for breakfast. I can’t wait to go home and make all of them!!!

  8. So speaking of soft serve and vanilla flavored, you need to go try the soft serve at Momofuku when you get to NYC. We ate at Ma Peche this weekend when we were down in the city, and the Momofuku Milk Bar is right outside. They have a famous cereal milk soft serve, and I knew I needed to try it b/c I’ve heard so much about it. I decided that it’s essentially unflavored ice cream. Then they roll it in crushed corn flakes. So it’s essentially cereal ice cream. Interesting for sure. But really not sure why it’s got such a reputation. Anyways, your commentary above made me think about that. Love these cookies, btw. The No Bake King strikes again!!

    1. Mate, I had the EXACT same thoughts- Although I tried their milkshake too and was like…Um. Pretty sure McDonalds could do this better. Heck, I could have face planted three from shake shake! Although Momofuku is an epic name. It should be Brad and Angelina’s……Tenth child’s name.

  9. The only way I will eat ice cream is if it has sprinkles on it. There is no discussion. So that would also be my favorite ice cream topping 🙂 I absolutely loath maraschino cherries though. They should not be on ice cream, only in Shirley Temples.

  10. Ok first of all, I lol’d at your sister’s example. Second of all, these sound so good! With those ingredients I’m sure the texture is amazing. I mostly associate vanilla cake with happy Les, however sprinkles are usually involved as well.

  11. Don’t tell Sam about your dislike of sprinkles … I’m right there with you on the idea of eating this as a dough versus taking the time to shape cookies. Because everybody knows that unbaked/shaped dough tastes better than actual cookies. Fact.

  12. I put sprinkles on just about everything, (sweet, that is) so I can’t say that I associate it just with vanilla. Funfetti, sure, But Funfetti is it’s own thing all together. I mostly just associate vanilla with white. Which could be racist sounding? Whatever.

  13. Don’t hate me, but I’ve never been a fan of the colorful sprinkles. Would it be okay if I just add some vegan mini chocolate chips? 🙂 Anyway, these look great, and they’re pretty healthy. A win-win!

  14. Cake is my lyfeeeeeee. And actually i want to eat everything with a spoon (actually scratch that) if i’m supposed to eat it with my hands i want utensils and if i’m supposed to be classy and use silverware, i use my face. but i definitely foresee plate-lickage to get the remnants of fallen pink sprinkles. actually when i was little i ordered my ice cream with EXTRA EXTRA sprinkles.. sometimes hold the ice cream. i was actually given a tub of jimmes (thats what we call them) for my 9th birthday.. YUP

  15. I substituted the vanilla with plain protein powder, the nut butter with margerine, the sea salt with black pepper, and the ground oats with ground stones. It taste horrible! Even the sprinkles didn’t help. Worst recipe ever!!

    bhahahaha!

    I like the idea of eating it in batter form, I think I’ll give that a go!

  16. I’m going to just start reading your blog on Sunday only. That’s when you post the best stuff. Usually I don’t even read on Sundays. You sir, and you alone, are going to force me to change my habits. Well done with this one.

  17. I don’t have oat bran – I wonder if ground flax seed might work instead of the oat bran? Or can you think of anything else? Thank you!

  18. No shame. I’m typing this between spoonfuls going straight from bowl to mouth. I knew I had no patience to wait to refrigerate a cookie, so I added the extra milk as you suggested and it’s simply divine. I highly recommend using vanilla sugar in this – it’s perfect!
    Thank you for sharing this. I will be lucky if I don’t eat this every day from now on!

  19. How much protein powder is a “scoop” in your recipes? Grams and tablespoons please. I’m asking because mine is 2 scoops per serving. I think the scoop size is extra small… but I’m not certain.
    I think I will probably eat this recipe from a bowl with a spoon – my favorite way for most similar recipes!

  20. This sounds delish! Can I make this with dairy and non-gluten free options? Or are those the things that make it a “no bake” snack? Thankyou
