Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Happy New Year! I hope 2015 is treating everyone well so far! A new year implies new goals, resolutions, and routines. As nice as the holidays were, I know I’m looking forward to establishing a new routine and getting back on track with my eating and sleeping patterns. Many of us had a few weeks off from school and work which was well deserved, but makes it tricky to go back. Back to school and work means menu planning and making lunches ahead of time.. Which I know we all LOVE. hehe Over the holidays I experimented with this delicious oatmeal breakfast cookie which is loaded with healthy super foods (banana, flax, coconut, goji berries, oats, pumpkin seeds). It can be enjoyed in the morning for breakfast, as a mid-day snack, or on the drive home. Because they are loaded with super foods and fibre and have minimal sugar, they will keep you feeling satisfied. You won’t feel bad if you eat more than one! These are kid friendly too!
