There’s a saying I’ve heard before that goes a little something like this: “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

Now whether or not you believe this to actually be true, I think we can all agree that breakfast becomes a hella lot more important when there are COOKIES involved.

I call these cookies the healthiest breakfast cookies because I personally believe they are pretty darn healthy as far as a cookie can go.

What’s in the healthiest breakfast cookies:

The healthiest breakfast cookies have also got a permanent place on my weekly meal prep rotation. I love to prepare a batch of these healthy seedy cookies on a Sunday and them them ready to go for the rest of the week!

  • An assortment of healthy seeds
  • sliced almonds
  • Natural nut butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Whole grain oats

Health Benefits of Seeds

Firstly, these cookies have not one, not two, not three, but four different types of seeds – sunflower, pumpkin, chia and sesame.

Seeds are a great source of protein, healthy fats and provide many micronutrients needed and that are missing in many western diets.

Chia seeds are know for their fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, pumpkin and sunflower seeds have been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer, and sesame seeds are known to regulate levels of estrogen.

How to make healthy breakfast cookies

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
