Chocolate Cherry Breakfast Cookie Recipe

| 3/28/2012 9:05:00 AM

Our children's easy, go-to breakfast on weekday mornings are organic cereal bars. They love them and request them every day. After a little label reading it became very clear why they love them so much! They are LOADED with sugar. I am trying to reduce our family's sugar intake, so I decided to come up with a cereal bar alternative that was low in sugar and high in protein and nutrition (and of course, deliciousness!). This breakfast cookie fits the bill! It is so scrumptious that they are almost addictive. They also are far more nutritious than the average cereal bar sold everywhere. Made with almond flour, oats, walnuts, cherries and chunks of dark chocolate, this recipe will quickly become a family favorite! Feel free to tinker with your family's personal preferences! Replace the cherries with cranberries, dates, raisins or banana chips, or the chia seeds with flax, pumpkin, sunflower or sesame seeds.
