Eating a nutritious breakfast after you wake up is very important. A healthy meal in the morning re-fuels your body and provides the necessary energy for the day. But when we think of the usual healthy options, cookies are definitely not one of them. Except these.
Adults and kids everywhere, rejoice! You can roll out of bed and start your morning with these delicious Breakfast Cookies. They’re Paleo, SCD, and can be made vegan as well. So instead of skipping breakfast or grabbing a sugary baked good somewhere on the way to work, whip up a batch of these healthy Breakfast Cookies!
This recipe is by Danielle Walker of Against All Grain. She says,
“I get a little excited when I look at the ingredients for these cookies. I love that there’s no dairy, minimal flour, and that they’re just as good with the flax “eggs” as they are with conventional eggs. They’re high in fiber and protein. They’re grain-free, dairy-free, and are completely sweetened by fruit. Which also makes them Paleo and SCD.
They’re the perfect way to start off your day. Or to give you an energy burst to help you get through the middle of your day. Or to eat for dessert at the end of your day. Make these whatever you want them to be. I store mine in the freezer and just remove the amount of cookies I want to eat 15-20 minutes prior to eating. They’re also really good warm, so you can pop them in the microwave frozen for 20 seconds as well.
Please note that the breakfast cookies in these photos were made with 2 eggs. If you make them egg-free, they will be a slightly different color due to the flax and will also not rise as much. They are slightly more dense and moist than the cookies pictured.
