We Ate Cookies and Mounds for Breakfast – Breakfast Cookie Recipe

Yes we did! Ok, it was breakfast cookies and a faux Mounds smoothie, but it was awesome. Here’s the recipe for the breakfast cookie:20150426_113203
2 cups apple sauce or pear sauce (I use my bullet to turn pears and dates into a sauce)
4 Tbsp pitted dates
½ cup almond butter (store bought or yet another job for the bullet)
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 ½ cup rolled oats
½ cup coconut flour (I get the 5 lb bag from Mountain Rose Herbs since I really go through coconut)
½ tsp aluminum free baking powder
½ tsp baking soda (I find mine at Mountain Rose Herbs)
1 tsp xantham gum
1 tsp chia seeds (also a find at Mountain Rose Herbs)
½ tsp sea salt
3 Tbsp crushed pecans
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup cacao nibs (again Mountain Rose Herbs, you may be noticing a trend by now)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix
3. Drop on a greased cookie sheet and flatten slightly
4. Bake for 20-25 minutes until they are golden
5. Let cool and gobble up!

We Ate Cookies and Mounds for Breakfast – Faux Mounds Smoothie Recipe

Yes we did! Ok, it was breakfast cookies and a faux Mounds smoothie, but it was awesome. Here’s the recipe for the smoothie:20150426_113336

I love my bullet, and make all my smoothies in it, but you can use any blender, vitamix or any blending device you have.
Combine
1 banana
½ cup unsweetened coconut (I get the 5 lb bag from Mountain Rose Herbs)
½ cup spinach leaves
4 or 5 pitted dates
2 Tbsp raw cacao powder (also from Mountain Rose Herbs)
2 cups almond milk (or more depending on how thick you like your smoothies)
Blend it down really well so the coconut pieces aren’t too big, serve, and enjoy! It’s ridiculously good.
