Cookies for breakfast?  Yes, please.  But don’t worry.  These are both kid and mom approved.  Plus, they’re gluten free, vegan, oil free and contain no artificial sweeteners.

When you add in all of that healthy stuff, you might find it hard to believe that they’re also delicious.  But believe me, they’re good.  They don’t last long, even my husband finds them irresistible.  My personal favorite is the chunky monkey cookie, thanks to the chocolate chips.  But don’t underestimate the blueberry muffin, it’s a close second.
