Breakfast cookies are a big hit around here. With a 4am wake up and a hankering for healthy carbs and sweets I have declared my kind of cookies an exceptional breakfast. In them is creamy ricotta cheese, whole grains, a little bit of butter and lots of lemon. You might find yourself leaping out of bed (OK, maybe not at 4:00) for breakfast like I do. I even made them gluten and nut free to get more of you guys to eat the most important meal of the day.
At the end of the month I am speaking at my alma mater Syracuse University. I am so excited to share all about my fun career with the students on campus. They have also lined up for me to be on the local TV show Bridge Street on WSYR. I believe I will be doing a cooking demo.
With the ease, simplicity and flavor of these cookies they will be perfect for my on air presentation. They personify everything I do on this blog. Healthy whole food ingredients put together creatively with respect to health and great flavor.
A slight crust on the outside yields a soft corn and oats cake-like texture in the middle. As you can see, I top a bowl of thick greek yogurt with a cookie for snack or breakfast. Serve with or without the dollops of lemon vanilla cream cheese frosting.
This weekend I attended a huge natural foods expo with the great folks from Udi’s Gluten Free Foods. We learned all about their wonderful line of products and toured the show. We also enjoyed gluten free Banh Mi sandwiches at the Nom Nom Truck. Check out a few fun photos and details from the event.
