Cookies for breakfast? Yes please!! These healthy breakfast cookies can actually be enjoyed at any time of day and are super nutritious as they are based around oats, fruit and nuts.
A healthy breakfast can provide vital nutrients such as calcium and B vitamins, improve memory and performance, and breakfast eaters also tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are less likely to be overweight which means a reduced risk of heart disease.
Breakfast is also my most favourite meal of the day – which is why I love to share healthy recipes which can be enjoyed even by the people who need a ‘breakfast on the go’.
And if you love these cookies then why not try these combinations and add-ins (as suggested by my lovely twitter followers!):
1) Fresh blueberries (instead of dried fruit), walnuts (instead of almonds) and a handful of dark chocolate chunks
2) Dried cranberries (instead of raisins), chopped pecans (instead of almonds) and maple syrup (instead of stevia)
3) Raisins, almonds and agave nectar (instead of stevia)
4) Dried apricots (instead of raisins) and honey (instead of stevia)
5) Dried blueberries (instead of raisins) and desiccated coconut (instead of almonds)
