So my cookie pic isn’t the most exciting, buttt these breakfast cookies are simple to make, yummy & a great grab & go for breakfast or a snack.

So how are these healthy?

  • No baking sugar
  • All natural
  • Uses ginger, which has many health benefits (see juicing post for more information)
  • Offers fiber & protein from oats, coconut flour, pumpkin puree & banana

Molasses adds the best flavor when looking for a gingerbread taste!

I like to compare blackstrap molasses to dark chocolate. It’s not as healthy as a carrot, but it is a better for you sweetener that offers many health benefits as well.
