Start Your Day with Cookies – Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Tea party on a cold winter afternoon at my friend’s place, holding a cup of hot tea in my hands, chatting and eating healthy cookies with blueberries and rolled oats baked by the hostess. I said, “These cookies would make a great quick grab-and-go breakfast!” I learned that it’s called “Breakfast Cookie” after she tells me about this food trend. Putting “Eat healthy” in my 2018 resolutions and quickly fulfill it by having healthy cookies for breakfast!

 

Recipe of the yummy breakfast cookies my friend baked:

Lemon Blackberry Breakfast Cookies (Gluten, Egg, and Dairy-Free) + Why I’m Going Gluten Free

My friend used blueberry instead and I love them as no chewing on the seeds of blackberry.

 

Another great recipe she tried that she really likes:

Oh Mega Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies & Superfood Green Monster

 

I love baking and I would like to bake some breakfast cookies myself! Here are some recipes I found online that I am want to try:

Real Breakfast Cookies(Vegan and Gluten Free)

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread Breakfast Cookies

Pineapple Coconut Breakfast Cookies

Definitely going to share my afterthoughts of trying those recipes! Stay tune! 😉

Which kind of oats is Healthier?

The less the oat is being processed the longer it takes your body to digest and get to the actual starch, therefore is healthier. Steel cut oats are simply oat kernels being chopped into large pieces, so they are lower on the glycemic index, i.e. how much they cause a spike in blood sugar. It’s the healthiest compare to rolled oats, quick cooking oats and instant oatmeal. Rolled oats are whole oat groats being steamed, and then rolled out into flakes. They are low on the glycemic index and still a good healthy option. Quick cooking oats were steamed for longer, and tend to be in slightly smaller pieces than rolled oats, which have significantly lower glycemic index than instant oatmeal or other cereals.
