Happy National Cookie Day! In honor of this ‘holiday’ I created a batch of breakfast cookies!
It was perfect timing because Monk Fruit in the Raw is sponsoring a contest through Recipe ReDux, to challenge members to use their new zero-calorie sweetener to create a baked good. It’s easy to bake with because it measures cup for cup like granulated sugar. Using Monk Fruit in the Raw is a simple way to cut back on sugar and calories.
Cookies for breakfast? Yes!! These are packed full of whole grains, protein, fiber, and low in sugar. Using Monk Fruit in the Raw kept these cookie low in sugar while still providing a sweet taste.
Pair these cookies with some fruit and a glass of milk or yogurt for a well balanced meal to help you power through the morning.
Makes 16 cookies
2 cups oats
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener
2/3 cup almond butter
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
These cookies were ridiculously easy to make. All you need is 1 bowl some healthy ingredients and 30 minutes to spare. Make these and have breakfast ready to go all week. Swap in an out different seeds, nuts, and dried fruit to what you prefer.
