26 May Grab n’ Go Power Cookies
We named these cookies POWER cookies because they are full of nutrients that fuel your brain and body. Oat bran and shredded apple add fiber to keep you full and focused all morning long. Chia seeds and walnuts add a dose of healthy fat.
Pair these muffins with a protein like Greek yogurt, almond butter or hard-boiled eggs to make a complete, balanced breakfast. Most importantly, make these in advance so you can grab-and-go in the morning without worrying about what you’ll eat for breakfast to keep you full all morning.Print
