What you eat for breakfast makes all the difference when it comes to maintaining your energy and productivity levels throughout the day. Not only that, but skipping breakfast or eating one that isn’t filling can lead to extra snacking during the day, which can obviously lead to unwanted weight gain. It might be difficult figuring out how to make a healthy breakfast when you’re short on time before work each morning. Well, we’ve got a great solution. Breakfast cookies you can prepare on the weekend for the entire week! These make the perfect breakfast when you’re low on time since you can just grab a cookie or two before heading out to work – or even sit down and enjoy them with a cup of coffee if you have a little more time. Whichever way you choose to eat them, these delicious (and healthy!) cookies will fill you up and give you that extra boost of energy. They’re a perfect fit for the paleo diet and vegans as they’re grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free!
