Now on to another breakfast option, breakfast cookies!
These cookies contain only 2 T of local honey. The chopped figs help in sweetening! Next time you’re using sugar try sweetening with fruit instead 🙂
Some ingredients include…
- Chia seeds: help with skin & aging
- Ground Flax: high in fiber & omega-3 but low in carbs
- Acai powder: nutrient dense & can boost brain function
Acai Fig Breakfast Cookies
- 1 c quick oats (gluten free if needed)
- 1/3 c coconut flour
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1 T ground flax
- 1/2 T acai powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 c unsweetened apple sauce
- 1/4 c non-dairy milk
- 2 T organic raw honey* or pure maple syrup
*Agave nectar has a low-glycemic index b/c it’s largely made of fructose, the single most damaging form of sugar. Opt instead to buy local, organic honey. Local beekeepers will not use dangerous factory-farming methods, & it helps maintain your local bee population 🙂
- 3 fresh figs, sliced & diced
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Line a baking sheet with a silpat & set aside.
- In a large bowl add & whisk all dry ingredients.
- Add in your wet ingredients & mix until combined.
- Fold in your sliced figs.
- Use an ice-cream scooper to distribute batter among your silpat. Lightly press down each scoop of batter with your palm to form into a flatter cookie shape.
- Bake for 12-13 minutes. Enjoy!
Enjoy the long weekend!
