Cranberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies: Healthy Choices
These breakfast cookies are decidedly healthier than standard cookies. To boost the healthy fiber in this breakfast cookie recipe I also used psyllium powder. I used pure cane sugar in the recipe this time, as I was making them for my daughter but will try substituting part or all of that with a natural stevia/erythritol baking blend next time. She enjoyed the cranberry oatmeal breakfast cookies and they are already a good muffin substitute for her… the swap will make them an even better choice.
