So we made a mistake. We forgot to post a recipe on Sunday and it wasn't on purpose. We were just spending an excessive amount of time away from the computer eating delicious food and making great memories with some friends. It really felt great to unplug a bit and we plan on doing it more. We will just plan better so you can have the normal deliciousness delivered anyways.
So, it was a great time with lots of great friends but now it's back to the gym and eating clean for a while. Why? Because we ate a few too many “Paleo” treats and are now in a sugar coma.
“Like what?” you may ask. Well, how about the ridiculously amazing Vanessa from Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind hand-delivered her Paleo “Reese's” Cheesecake with Fauxreo Crust and it was STUPID!!! And by stupid, we mean the most delicious thing we have ever ingested, which is why we had about half of it. Vanessa = Evil Genius you should go check out.
So, we'll now get to the main point of this blog. In short, we get asked all the time about what people can make or eat for breakfast besides eggs that they can grab and go.
That honestly sounds like a tall order now that we have read over it but have no fear. We normally tell people to make our banana bread and freeze it, make it into pancakes and freeze them, or even make waffles out of them to grab, toast and go. We normally don't eat breakfast, but when we do, it is bulletproof coffee and now we have something to dip in it!
These cookies are simple and easy to make in advance. Throw some almond butter between them and make a sandwich but don't be mad at us when you get addicted. We won't keep you anymore, go get your bake on and enjoy.
