  • reduced-fat peanut butter
    1 cup
  • unsweetened applesauce
    1 cup
  • Splenda® Magic Baker™ Sweetener
    1/2 cup
  • ground flax seed
    2 tbsp
  • vanilla extract
    1 tsp
  • kosher salt
    1/4 tsp
  • ground cinnamon
    1 1/2 tsp
  • quick cooking oats
    2 cup
  • vanilla protein powder
    2 scoops
  • dried reduced-sugar cranberries
    1/2 cup
  • pumpkin seeds
    1/2 cup


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a large baking sheet by covering with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together peanut butter, applesauce, Splenda Magic Baker Sweetener, flaxseed, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon until well combined.

  3. Add in oats and protein powder, stirring until incorporated. Fold in cranberries and pumpkin seeds.

  4. Scoop dough onto parchment paper 3 inches apart into large cookie-sized balls. Press each dough ball down into a cookie to shape (they won’t spread very much). Bake for 12–14 minutes, or just until golden brown around the edge.

  5. Remove and let cool. They may be enjoyed immediately, placed in an air-tight container and enjoyed within 3 days, or frozen for future easy breakfasts.
