Yesterday morning, I was inspired to bake something yummy & healthy for my kids. Something yummy that feeds their soul. Something healthy that feeds my need to raise them right. I went to Tropical Traditions.com and browsed throughout the recipe blog and came up with breakfast cookies! Well, they were called 'Gluten Free Coconut Chocolate Chip Scones', but I thought breakfast cookies had a better ring to it. I liked that they were:
This was super easy to whip up in plenty of time for my kids to arise to a warm breakfast. Add a little fresh fruit and you have a healthy start to the day. By the way, these did not make it to the next day. A bowl of crumbs was all that was left.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
*Notes on Almond meal
You can purchase almond meal from Trader Joes, or Whole Foods. However, even if they say 'organic', know that there is in place a law that gives almond growers a loop hole where they can call the almonds organic, even if they are not. Your best source for truly organic almond flour is at your local Farmers Market, or at Sun Organic Farm.
Your other option is to make almond milk and use the almond meal that is left over. Again, your best bet is to purchase your whole almonds from Sun Organic Farm.
