Recipe: The Optimum Breakfast Cookie

cookies6

It seems like I am forever on-the-go…primarily Monday-Friday. Getting out the door can be a bit of a chore, especially if making the extra effort to eat something nutritious. And as a mother of a 11 month old who is breastfeeding, consuming the adequate amount of vitamins and minerals is essential. These cookies definitely became my solution. I eat 2 every single morning. They have boosted my energy and I feel balanced and ready-to-go when I arrive at work. I’ve forgotten to throw them in my bag on a couple of occasions and was super bummed, as they’ve now become a huge part of my morning ritual. 🙂 Hope that you enjoy them as much as I do! Cheers!
