Cake Batter Oatmeal Protein Bites

Two for One: We’re all about cooking once and eating twice. In short, double dinners are better. Show us how you take a favorite recipe already on your blog – and ReDux the leftovers into a new dish. Or, whip up a new healthy recipe and give suggestions on how to make it a second meal. For example, slow cooker pot roast could become shredded beef tacos; or grilled chicken breasts might morph into chicken salad.

I like this idea of recycling recipes! It goes hand in hand with not wasting food, and finding multiple uses for a recipe can be really fun! :]

I’ve technically done this “two for one” deal before with my Quinoa & Black Beans (I turned it into an omelet!). Since that one was more of a savory sort of deal, I decided to change up a dessert recipe this time!

You may scoff at me for cheating and using the easiest recipe in all of creation in my recipe index…but don’t hate! I’m out of town this month (why am I always out of town in March? I was in the Dominican Republic last year for a medical service trip! :O ) on an away rotation, so I don’t have any of the things from my regular kitchen with me!

Speaking of March, this time last year was when I was accepted into The Recipe ReDux, and it’s what sparked me to finally come out of my antisocial blogging bubble! :D! (I made vegan Walnut Oat Patties for the occasion.)

So what is this super-super simple recipe I speak of?

3-ingredient Oatmeal Cookies

These suckers take maybe 5 minutes to make, tops, and you can easily deconstruct them and throw them into anything (e.g. as a granola, oatmeal or yogurt topping)! (I brought my entire stash of granola with me here to finish off!)

For an actual legit recipe though, I decided to make them into energy bites! <3 As you may well know, I love cake batter anything (e.g. Cake Batter Popcorn, Cake Batter Cookies, Cake Batter Blondies…), so I’m goin’ with that and here we are!

Cake Batter Oatmeal Protein Bites

Cake Batter Oatmeal Protein BitesIngredients:

  • 1 1/2-2 bananas
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup dried raisins (or your choice of dried fruit)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I used Puritan’s Pride Soy Protein Powder-Vanilla)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk (or your choice of milk)
  • sprinkles (optional, but just know that sprinkles make everything in life more wonderful)


  1. Mash banana and mix all ingredients (except the sprinkles) together until well combined.
  2. Form into little balls and lightly roll them into sprinkles (if using).
  3. Refrigerate until firm!

    Those look really good! My favorite recipe that doubles as two dinners is this chicken parmesan sandwiches: http://foodfamilyfinds.com/step-by-step-slow-cooker-pulled-chicken-parmigiana-sandwiches-recipe/

    It makes so much chicken, you can use the rest to pour over spaghetti the next day! It’s awesome!
