Big News: In 6 weeks I’m going to the 4th annual Healthy Living Summit 2012! It’s a conference where blogging, health and magic intertwine and amazing things happen. Since this is going to be my 1st blogging conference (my first health conference was Be Healthy Boston in January) I am beyond excited. On top of that, since WILD HARVEST is one of our sponsors they are holding a recipe contest where we are given a big box of organic goodies and have to come up with a tasty, creative and nutritious breakfast dish!
So, let me set the stage: a couple weeks ago I was sent a big box full of inspiring, organic ingredients – all by WILD HARVEST – and the main rule of the contest was that we had to use at least 3 of the 9 WILD HARVEST ingredients that were sent to us. As you can see we were given a lot to choose from!
I decided to go with a yummy breakfast cookie using WILD HARVEST applesauce, peanut butter and raisins.
In my mind, summer is a spontaneous time full of car trips, vacations and last minute plans – all of which are wonderful but don’t really give you time to eat a nutritious breakfast. So rather than grabbing a breakfast sandwich or opting for a cup of coffee on the go, I thought a super nutritious breakfast cookie would be ideal. That way you can enjoy it on the go but still get all the nutrients and energy you need to keep you going throughout the day.
Breakfast Cookies can also be great for when you have family or friends in town visiting, when your kids need a healthy breakfast at camp or when you’re simply tired of cereal and yogurt. I hear your concern, “Breakfast cookie? How can there be such a thing?” But there is and they’re wonderful!
Check out my recipe below and feel free to change it up when you make your own. Chocolate chips? Sounds good to me. Crunchy peanut butter instead of creamy? Yum!! One great thing about recipes like this is that they’re easy to throw together and they’re super easy to customize. Oh, and if you didn’t notice – my recipe doesn’t include any dairy or meat products! So it’s yummy and compassionate – extra brownie points for me.
So go crazy, whip up a batch of WILD HARVEST Scrumptious Sunrise Breakfast Cookies and then come back here and tell me where you took them! Maybe to the beach or on a morning hike – wherever you need a delicious but healthy breakfast.
Thanks WILD HARVEST & Healthy Living Summit for such a fun contest!!
Please note that I received these free (yummy) products from SUPERVALU INC. for the purpose of this contest and a blog entry! Yay!
