Almost Breakfast Cookies-9

Breakfast cookies. I wasn’t quite sure about them when I started seeing them float around on Pinterest a year or so ago.

I mean, I love breakfast and I love cookies but a cookie for breakfast made me uncomfortable.

As a savoury breakfast gal, I had some doubts. Could I accept a breakfast cookie? Would I be full? Would I have deep breakfast regrets at about 930am? So. Many. Questions.

Then, Martyna’s book, The Wholesome Cook, appeared on my doorstep to answer those questions. In fact, it basically answers every question you might have about whole foods cooking.

And I mean every single question. This book is a mega 351 pages long with an entire, incredibly useful, chapter on home made basics. Coconut yogurt, I’m coming for ya.

You will probably know Martyna from her blog of the same name. Like the blog, Martyna’s book is filled with beautifully shot and styled feel-good recipes that are always a reflection of Martyna’s food philosophy. Vegetarian, vegan, paleo, allergy friendly options are throughout the book, too.

I made this Breakfast Cookie recipe from The Wholesome Cook, and it has me sold. The not-quite-sweet, super-nutty and definitely-healthy cookie is so perfect for those days you thought you set your alarm but you didn’t about 17 minutes to get into the car. It’ll tie you over to morning tea time, too.

I was gifted a copy of The Wholesome Cook by Martyna Angell from Harlequin Mira. It’ll set you back $49.99 and it is worth every cent.

    Oh my gosh, Erin! They look amazing! Thank you for taking the plunge and trying them – we keep a batch in the tupperware in the pantry all the time and my hubby has them as a post-workout snack too. And they do keep for up to 8 weeks. We know because when my Mum was here in June we baked 860 of them (yes, eight hundred and sixty) and had some leftovers which kept, preservative-free, for ages.
