Loaded Vegan Breakfast Cookies

Cookies…gluten free, vegan, healthy, eat-them-for-breakfast-cookies!! 

What’s not to love?!

These cookies are LOADED, hence the name, with healthy goodness!

I was inspired by these yummy cookies by Because I Like Chocolate, and packed them with even more than I thought possible! We’ve got GF oats, flaxseed, GF oat bran, banana, natural peanut butter, coconut, raisins, goji berries, protein powder (optional!), and just for that extra kiss of sweetness, some vegan dark chocolate!

These cookies will rev up your engine, fill your belly, and get you started for the day!

Of course, you can always have these at any time of the day, not just breakfast! They would also make a perfect pre-workout snack, and because they are only 109 calories each, why not have two?! 🙂

Who says cookies should only be eaten as a rare treat?! I think these would be a suitable day-to-day snack! Fiber, protein, healthy fats, and no refined sugars, flours, or junk, sounds good to me!

In fact, I’ve been including these cookies in healthy meal deliveries for my nutrition clients! Yep, that’s right!

Don’t be intimidated by the lengthy looking recipe! Just mix everything together and these cookies are done in a flash!

Remember, I’m not a fan of the finicky recipes myself, so you better believe these little guys are easy-peasy!
