Just because I’m back to eating better for the new year, doesn’t mean I’m not going to have a treat on occasion. I’m going to be smarter about it though, and as you will find, a treat can easily become a viable meal, when you wisely choose ingredients. Healthy walnuts and oatmeal are prominent in this sweet potato breakfast cookies recipe, choosing a natural zero calorie sweetener lowers calories and sugar load, and Smart Balance Blended Butter & milk are heart healthier without sacrificing flavor.
These sweet potato breakfast cookies are sort of halfway between a cookie and a small muffin top. They are quite tender on the inside and filling for their size. Over the past week, I would eat one to supplement a salad which wasn’t quite enough to satisfy me, or eat 2-3 with my coffee for a filling breakfast. I enjoyed this version, but will mix it up a bit next time i make them, for variety.
