Superfood Breakfast Cookies

There isn't much I love more than a clean recipe, loaded with protein, fat & nutrients that's perfect for a quick breakfast and a snack. This one ticks all of those boxes. 

As we know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It sets you and your metabolism up for the day so you're off and running. But life gets in the way. If you have little people to manage in the mornings, then even more so. We often get everyone and everything else ready before ourselves, then we're late and our needs become an afterthought.

This recipe has you covered. Easy to transport, will keep your tummy full and is even kid friendly! 

Have a fabulous week!
