I have a confession to make... I may have found a cookie that I can't keep my hands off! I just knew that when my kitchen was dancing with the delightful smells of Fall spices that I was in trouble. Coming up with Fall recipes hands down is one of my favorite things and where I feel my creativity really shines. Just ask anyone that has purchased my Fall Detox program and they will tell you just how tasty those recipes are!
If you’re like me, breakfast can grow old quickly… I mean, how many bowls of oatmeal, pancakes or toast can a person have?! That’s why I decided to play around with a fun breakfast cookie recipe to spice things up! Paired with a healthy protein (eggs, protein shake, all-natural chicken or turkey sausage) these cookies make a well-rounded meal! Plus, you can say “I had cookies for breakfast!” and do so guilt-free!
