Breakfast in a cookie? Yes please! I love to eat breakfast, I love to make breakfast but I also love to sleep and If I have to choose between eating or sleeping…. my bed always wins. This is fine at the weekends when I have no school run to go on, but during the week there are often a couple of days where I feel as though I don’t have time to make breakfast for myself.
A pre-made, perfectly portioned sized breakfast cookie (or 2) is most definitely the answer for me. Making them in advance means that you have a couple of days worth ready to go in the fridge (although like most things, they taste better on the first day) and the best thing about them is that they are portable, so you can just grab them and go if you need to.
Clean Eating Banana Nut Breakfast Cookies are quick and easy to make. They contain just 5 ingredients, no added sugar (besides naturally occurring sugar) they are dairy free, suitable for vegans, and can be gluten free. These cookies don’t just have to be eaten for breakfast either, they make a great nutritious snack during the day too.
2 of these cookies are equivalent to a 20g serving of porridge oats. – That’s how much I eat for breakfast, but if you usually eat more, just eat an extra cookie or 2 to make up for it until you have reached your preferred oat quota 🙂
