Christmas Breakfast Cookies, because when it’s the holidays all I want to eat is cookies. All day long.
If there’s a way to eat cookies 24/7 during the holiday season you know I’m going to find it. But I still want to feel like I’m eating regular cookies. Enter these guys. These are really, really good breakfast cookies. Soft & chewy with crispy edges.
They’re healthier, but still super tasty and topped with sprinkles, of course. Doubtful? When my kids ate these they said “they don’t even taste healthy!”. Exactly what I was going for. Healthy cookies for kids. And for me.
No need to wait for Christmas morning… I’m eating these every day. And there’s a good chance I won’t stop in January.
Using almond flour, oat flour & coconut flour amps up the nutritional value.
Maple syrup keeps the sugar lower.
Ricotta and egg for protein.
Plus… sprinkles! That’s how we make them feel like Christmas. 😉
Anything Special You Need to Know?
*These cookies are best fresh. The day they’re made they’re soft and chewy with crispy edges. They’re still good the next day, but they become more soft and cakey.
*They freeze well, but again, once thawed, they will be more cake like. I throw frozen ones in the microwave for a few seconds and eat them with a fork.
