Yummy Breakfast Cookies

May 8, 2019

Yesterday morning I was struggling to come up with something different for breakfast. I know I can't be the only mom who gets stuck in a slump of making the same few things for breakfast day after day, week after week. So yesterday, I thought I'd try something different, and came up with this YUMMY Breakfast Cookies. Packed with veggies and sweetened with maple syrup from our trees these were cookies that I felt great about giving to my boys to get their day started. 

 

 

INGREDIENTS:

2 c Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oats
1/8 c whole spelt flower
2 large carrots - shredded
1/2 a small green zucchini - shredded 
1/2 c organic dried currants
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/4 c pure maple syrup
2 large eggs 
          (could easily use flax eggs instead)
1 tsp cinnamon

          (or 1 drop of Young Living's cinnamon vitality essential oil)
1/8 tsp nutmeg

          (or dip a toothpick in Young Living's nutmeg vitality essential oil and swirl it into the mix)

DIRECTIONS:

Put all ingredients in a mixing bowl, and have your kids stir (child labour and learning all at once) until combined.

Spoon onto a greased  (I use butter) cookie sheet and cook at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

I should have doubled the recipe to feed my bottomless-pit-boys. But they will definitely will be a new weekly staple at our house in the mornings.
