Now that the kiddos are back in school, do you struggle to get them out of bed in the morning?
Some days, my five-year old has no problem waking up at the crack of dawn and eager to head to school…..and then there are those other mornings where he could use just a liiitttle bit of help.
So for those days, we’ve got cookies. Breakfast cookies that is. An awesome way to wake up and totally worth getting out of bed early for!
Plus, it’s the perfect way to use up the rest of the garden zucchini and squash if you’ve still got a ton.
ZUCCHINI BREAKFAST COOKIES
These cookies have a little bit of summer and fall with the zucchini AND applesauce. Perfect for those not ready to give up on summer yet but also don’t want to get left behind from all the fall treats.
My kiddos LOVE these cookies and we’ve already made them at least a dozen times already. It’s a great way to sneak in some veggies and if you are not a fan of applesauce, you can totally use pumpkin puree instead.
The best part about these healthy cookies is how easily they come together without having to use a mixer. Just two bowls, a box grater and a cookie scoop helps to evenly portion out the dough. A fun baking project that even the kiddos can help out with.
They are also completely flourless, refined sugar free with some chocolate chunks for good measure. Or, feel free to add some dried fruit or chopped nuts instead for a bit of texture and crunch.
We sweetened them up with banana and honey and added a little bit of oats so they hold together. You can also make them completely paleo by leaving out the oats and swapping in almond flour instead.
They’re also freezer friendly and you can even make them ahead of time. Just warm them up for a few seconds for a healthy and delicious breakfast with your morning cup of java — or toss a few into your lunchbox to enjoy throughout the day.
