For the Cinnamon Bun Glaze

For the protein packed Cinnamon Bun Glaze

  • 1-2 scoops of vanilla or cinnamon protein powder
  • Dairy free milk to thin out
  • Cinnamon for dusting


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat bran, sea salt, cinnamon, nut butter and maple syrup and mix well. Add dairy free milk one tablespoon at a time until a thick batter is formed.
  • Using your hands or a cookie scoop, form into balls and set on the lined baking tray. Press each ball into a cookie shape and top with extra cinnamon. Bake for 12 minutes, or until slightly firm on the edges and remove. Allow to cool completely before glazing.
  • Prepare your cinnamon bun glaze by whisking all ingredients in a small bowl. Top the cookies with desired amount.


* Depending on the nut butter you use and oat type, you may need more. Adjust accordingly.
