I am always trying to think of new ideas for quick breakfasts on the go. Here is my latest one. These high protein breakfast cookies are packed with good stuff like rolled oats, hemp seeds, coconut and sunflower seeds. My daughter and husband loved them too. In fact, my daughter loves saying that she gets to eat cookies for breakfast! This recipe is also very versatile. You can really make it your own.
These would be a great little snack to eat before or even after a workout. They would be great to take on a hike too. I spent the better part of my twenties backpacking around the country and loved to munch on healthy treats like this one.
