These are very simple and make the perfect healthy snack or breakfast on the go. The dough is easy to shape into hearts. I added a little protein boost with the protein powder and soy flour. Buckwheat flour is also high in protein. To make a fancy dessert, you can dip one side in melted chocolate or frosting!
2 cups oats
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 cup organic non-gmo soy flour
1 scoop of unsweetened natural whey protein
1 c flaxseed meal
2 T melted coconut oil
1 c mixins (raisins, cranberries, etc)
1/2 c apple sauce (I used unsweetened Gravenstein apple sauce)
1/4 c maple syrup (optional)
Mix dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients. Pour over dry ingredients. Add mix-ins. Mold into dough and let sit for a few minutes. Re-mix and roll into a log shape onto a cutting board. Cut into 12 discs. Shape into hearts. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 °F, flipping once.
Instead of the apple sauce, you can also use a strawberry puree, goji berries, raspberries, etc. whatever your heart desires! I like to enjoy mine with a nice cup of green tea.
