‘Tis the season for COOKIES FOR BREAKFAST.
Who says that cookies only have to be for dessert? These are made with good-for-you ingredients that they can be enjoyed for breakfast! Think oats, whole wheat flour, dark chocolate and peanut butter.
A good balance of fiber and carbohydrates for energy to jump start your day. These would make a fun Christmas morning breakfast for the family and are easy to whip up with ingredients you have on hand.
Instead of using refined sugar to sweeten these, I used Bob’s Red Mill Date Sugar.
A few weeks ago on Instagram, I shared alternative sweeteners to use this holiday baking season that would provide more vitamins and minerals and in some cases, lower glycemic. DATES are definitely one of them – a good source of fiber, potassium and magnesium.
What cookies are you making for the holidays? I plan on making some classics like peanut butter blossoms, Russian teacakes and white chocolate gingerbread cookies. Let me know on Instagram!
If you make this, be sure to share with me on Instagram!
