These Sweet Potato Breakfast Cookies are a great way to start your day! Packed with nutritious ingredients like sweet potato, oatmeal and walnuts this healthy breakfast cookie recipe is delicious too.
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... 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.
