Cookies for Breakfast? Yes, please! This recipe from Pro Triathlete Linsey Corbin is exactly what you need to start the day off right.
This recipe is simple and tasty. The ingredients are a good combination of fast-burning carbs and low-glycemic carbs that burn slowly to fuel you for a longer workout. The base of this recipe is mashed bananas (natural sweetener), whole-grain oatmeal, almond butter (hello, healthy fats!), and an egg to keep everything together.
Corbin says, "I like these cookies as they aren't overly sweet. Sometimes before a long run, eating a bowl of oats just doesn't sound that good, or you are training early and don't have the time to prepare breakfast. With a portable, sweet treat like this, just grab a breakfast cookie, a slurp or two of coffee and you are good to go."
These breakfast cookies are also a blank canvas for mix-in options, making it easy to please a variety of cravings or use what you have on hand. "I tend to dump in all the nuts, fruits, and of course mini-chocolate chips," says Corbin.
