my new go to breakfast

With my new routine and all, I have been trying to plan ahead with at least a few meals per week.  It is much easier to eat healthy when you work from home than it is when you are on location for the day, and the only way to stay ahead of it is to plan in advance.

I came across a few recipes for breakfast cookies recently and am hooked on the concept because you can make them ahead and have a healthy option all week as you are running out the door.  I tried my first batch a few weeks ago and have a new batch in the oven as I type this.  These cookies are loaded with nourishing oats, ground flaxseed, and a healthy dose of fruit & berries.  They are sugar free and can be gluten free if you use gluten free oats {I elected not to} they are a  nutrient & superfood rich option for breakfast on the go.

POISE. | breakfast cookies

1 1/4 cup oat flour
2  cups old fashioned oats {I like to use raw rolled oats}
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 medium mashed very ripe banana
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon lemon zest
1/4 cup lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1 pint blueberries {or berries of your choice.  berries are best as they are lowest in sugar}

Pre-heat oven to 375º. Combine first 11 ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix.  Gently fold in berries of your choice.  Use an ice cream scoop to form cookies and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Bake for about 10 minutes until cookies turn golden brown.

I’ve used blackberries, currants with mulberries, and today I went with wild blueberries that I found at the farmers market over the weekend. Each combination is delicious. You can make them ahead and store them in an airtight container or freeze them which makes it very convenient and they last you a while.   This recipe makes about 2 dozen.

Tell me do you have any favorite healthy breakfast go to’s?
