We’ve all heard the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” While helping you pack nutritious lunches is our expertise, we also know that sending your kids off to school with a nutritious and filling breakfast is also very important.
They need a breakfast that will help them kick start their day and boost their energy levels (who am I kidding…like they really need help with that). Fresh fruits, as well as foods rich in whole grains, fiber, and protein, are most ideal.
These kinds of foods will help avoid the sugar slump (that they would get from most “grab-and-go” breakfast options) for longer lasting energy.
The recipe I am sharing with you today for Blueberry Breakfast Cookies fits all of the above bills. They are full of fresh fruit, whole grains, fiber, and protein. They are a breeze to make, perfect for busy mornings when you’re trying to get everyone out the door on time, and I’m telling you now…your kids will absolutely love them! I mean you did read the cookie part of the recipe name, right?
These can also be made ahead for an even quicker morning. Click here for another awesome MOMables breakfast cookie recipe.
