Superfood Breakfast Cookie

Summer is ALMOST here, and although I take clean eating seriously all year, I take it ESPECIALLY seriously now (ignore my awful Engrish).  I am mindful of the fact that I am going to be running around in a bikini every single weekend, and want to look my best! I haven’t been doing so hot though recently; this weekend alone I had nachos for dinner, pancakes for breakfast, dim sum, bags of chips, and I think a pizza was thrown into the mix as well… So basically nothing has changed at all. But I’m not too bummed, food is delicious and I enjoy every bite of it.

BUT I thought that I would try to give myself a boost in the breakfast department with the creation of these breakfast cookies packed with fruits, nuts, and oats!

If you haven’t already read about my love affair with Bulk Barn, then now is a good time to take a read. Especially if you’re hoping to make these superfood breakfast cookies! That is one of my favorite things about the store – although the prices are not as cheap as you’d expect them to be, it is so convenient! I can get everything I need to make a particular recipe, even if it has the most random ingredients in it. These cookies have chia seeds, hemp seeds, almond butter, almond (or oat) flour, plus cranberries and dark chocolate chips. Everything you could want to make a delicious yet nutritious cookie, but not the easiest ingredients to get a hold of. Unless you are a super health freak and already have these items sitting in your pantry, I would suggest taking a trip to the bulk store!

Anyway, these cookies are so good for a morning snack or for an on-the-go breakfast. There is no refined sugar in them, the honey and chocolate chips add just the perfect amount of sweetness! I wrapped a couple up each morning and took them to work, but ate them before I even got on the streetcar. I have no will power. Hence nachos for dinner at least once a week.

  4. Hi Beverly! Living in San Francisco, where the summer is actually cold, I haven’t had a “bikini season” in a while. But I moved outside the city where it is warmer and pool days are in my future. I need a tan! This breakfast cookie sounds delish. Nice work! 🙂

      Ahhh hemp seeds are super good! I recommend trying them on yogurt or cereal first!

    See, I actually do have some chia seeds sitting unused in the pantry – I just don’t like chia pudding so they never get used! But cookies? I like cookies!

    These look fantastic. If I can find the items in lovely Hamburg then I’ll definitely make them. I just read your interesting and fun post (looking forward to the alcohol part…) about tough mudder – I’m training for one now. Apart from running, running and more running, what would be your next big tip? Take care!

      ooo you’re doing tough mudder! good for you. I would practice running on things like sand, and working on uphill sprints. Honestly I didnt find any of the actual obstacles super difficult, but the bits where I had to run up a giant mud hill or in a sand pit for 2 km was DEATH.

    I love your attitude towards eating not-the-healthiest-food. As long we enjoyed it, it’s okay!
    Also this looks so good. Anything with the words superfood, breakfast, and cookie has my full attention! hahah

    Well, I took your advice and did a big run over the weekend! I’ll be focusing on it lots too over the next few weeks. Unfortunately Hamburg is as flat as a pancake so there wasn’t any uphill running involved, and I have no idea where any sand would be around here! Oh well. Looking forward to it anyway…which is probably very silly…

      That’s so great!! I think the runs combined with the Freeletics workouts will be perfect for getting you Tough Mudder ready! Looking forward to hearing about it 🙂
