Healthy Breakfast Cookies are a must. Way too many of our Fit4Females clients skip breakfast. Whip these up ahead of time. As a Fitness and Wellness Coach, I am always on the search for new recipes so I reached out to my talented friend Ashley of Real Roots to deliver the best to our Fit4Females Community.
Trina’s Tip: For those of us that drink smoothies, they are a great choice but nothing stimulates your digestive system more than chewing your food. Be sure to mix it up.
Each week in my Fit Insider, I dish out a workout, recipe or something full of inspiration and motivation. My goal is to get you to take action. Make these cookies and use the hashtag #Fit4Females on social media so that we can find out and cheer you on. If you need it, here’s a great workout to get you started. Have a cookie post workout 🙂
Healthy Breakfast Cookies
These cookies are great for a quick grab and go breakfast or snack any time of day. They feel like a real treat but are packed with protein, healthy fats, fibre and are completely sugar free! They are very customizable depending on what ingredients you have on hand. These Healthy Breakfast Cookies are vegan but I personally love to add collagen peptides to mine which no longer makes them vegan. You do not have to add this but I love collagen for its amazing benefits. It adds protein, is completely flavourless and is amazing for gut health, hair, skin and nails.
