I guess I’m all about that breakfast cookie. I like to eat weird things like soup and steak and pizza for breakfast, so why not dessert? (Plus, sometimes it’s cool to give my kids cookies for breakfast.) When it’s full of grain-free, naturally sweetened ingredients, I think that’s allowed. So today I’m sharing these grain free breakfast cookies (also naturally sweetened and Paleo friendly).
This one’s a fan.
We tested these on a crowd of unsuspecting mamas and kiddos and they were a hit. The arrowroot keeps them light and almost biscuit-like, and the sweet-salty combination is perfect. (He’s such a ham…)
Plus, cookies are super-portable, so they’re easy to grab on the run when we’ve got a busy day ahead. With fruit and maybe an egg cup, you’re good to go. Print and bake these, k?
- ½ package (about 6 slices) cooked bacon, chopped
