Breakfast Cookies – Start the Day Off Right

These breakfast cookies are make with quality ingredients and can be eaten at breakfast or as a snack.

As parents, we want our children to start their day out with the right types of foods in their body in order to maintain concentration, keep energy levels up and most importantly, to stay healthy.

These breakfast cookies have protein, carbohydrates, and vitamins from fresh or dehydrated fruits – all the things you want your child to have to start the day off right.

We have a tradition in our family of making these breakfast cookies during the first week of school. The kids like them because they are a quick grab in case they are late for school and they also make great snacks for the afternoon!
