One of the regular “healthy” ingredients that I missed while doing Whole30 was oats. I love a good bowl of oatmeal in the morning to keep me full and satisfied and these Apple Cinnamon Oat Breakfast Cookies are the perfect portable recipe!
Since finishing Whole30, we’ve cut down majorly on dairy, but have added in some of the other non-compliant foods, like oats. Oat milk is by far my favorite non-dairy milk to use for frothing in my lattes and it doesn’t make me feel sluggish like dairy can.
These cookies + my oat milk latte have been my g0-to breakfast as of late. Bonus: Norah loves them too! I’m a big fan of the breakfast cookie. I mean, who doesn’t want a cookie for breakfast?
If you still have some summer zucchini laying around, my Zucchini Chocolate Chunk Breakfast Cookies are SO good. But I’ve been getting some pretty good apples lately, and I’m definitely in the mood for all things cinnamon-spiced.
I am beyond ready for fall. For some reason, it seems like this has been a never-ending summer and I’m sure the weather will continue to be warm for quite some time. But I can’t wait for the cool crisp air and all of the yummy fall food!
