Need a portable breakfast “cookie”? These muesli breakfast cookies have all the hearty goodness baked in.
It’s morning, again. Time to get the kids up, clothed, teeth brushed, hair done, and make sure their socks match.
Somewhere between helping your son find his missing shoe and cleaning up the bowl of dog food that got knocked over, you need to feed them.
Yeah, breakfast is kind of important. They do have to eat in the morning. Every day. *sigh* –just like making lunches, another essential thing to do–but luckily you can get ideas here.
Having nutritious breakfast staples on hand is a must for busy mornings. I know I need to be able to reach into a container or my freezer and have something we can grab & go or simply reheat before we run out the door.
They need foods that will fill their bellies and hold them over until the next snack or meal. If they’re not at their best, they’re not going to be able to concentrate and focus like they need to.
This Muesli Breakfast Cookie recipe is packed full of fiber and protein to get their day started right.
It’s a kid-friendly cookie, so they won’t even know you’re packing all that nutrition inside! The honey and chocolate chips add sweetness, while the oats, seeds, and nut butter add the heart healthy grains and protein you love.
Allergy Friendly Tip: If you’re having trouble finding a “safe” brand of store bought Meusli, like my family, it’s easy to make your own! Just mix together certified Gluten Free oats, dried fruits, shelled seeds, and a little bit of ground flax or hemp for added nutrition. It really can be made to your liking and desire.
