The Benefits of Breakfast Cookies

We have new products we are excited about: breakfast cookies. We have done a lot of work to improve our recipes and bring you the best ingredients and most delicious tastes for our series of breakfast cookies. These single-serving cookies have great ingredients and are incredibly useful for an active, optimistic lifestyle.

Firstly, they contain important ingredients to start your day.

Seeds and berries for lasting energy

We’ve packed our Lemon Blueberry breakfast cookies with chia seeds, flax seeds, and blueberries to give you energy that will last through the morning and invigorate your thinking so you can start the day with a clear mind.

Chia seeds have many benefits, and one is the effect on your energy. BBC Good Food’s Associate Nutritionist Jo Lewin explains, "The combination of fat, protein and fibre means the seeds are digested relatively slowly, providing long, slow release of energy to keep blood-sugar levels stable.” Chia seeds have a neutral flavor, so you get the benefits while they stay backstage and let other flavors, like apple and cinnamon, shine.

As for blueberries, Chloe Thompson describes their benefits: "They rank the highest of any fruit for antioxidants (those free-radical-fighting powerhouses), and one cup delivers 14% of the recommended daily dose of fiber and nearly a quarter of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C.”

Get your daily dose of healthy oats

We use gluten-free oats in . We’ve noticed that many people are searching for oatmeal breakfast cookies because of the benefits of oats. Oats are one of those foods that promote good health when you eat them consistently.

Bonnie Taub-Dix, a Registered Dietician Nutritionist, says it best: "Oats contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fibers form a viscous gel that helps to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood glucose levels. The insoluble fiber in oats helps provide a ‘moving’ experience by curtailing constipation and improving intestinal health. What a delicious way to make your heart and colon smile."

Love your heart

Amanda Macmillan of Health explains that walnuts are the best nut for your heart because they "have high amounts of heart-healthy alpha linoleic acid (ALA).” If you are interested in starting your day with a boost of energy, try our Cranberry Orange Walnut oatmeal breakfast cookie.

Secondly, breakfast cookies fit your lifestyle in many important ways.

A natural wake-up call

Keep breakfast cookies at work or at home. As you get your tasks organized for the day, savor the energizing flavors—lemon, orange, or cinnamon—that accompany traditional breakfast fruit ingredients like blueberry and apple.

On-the-go companion

Grab a few on your way out the door on those days when you have little time and lots to do. Our breakfast cookies are packaged as single servings so that you can take one as needed.

Reinvigorate your afternoon

Somehow, as late afternoon approaches, energy can slide. Don’t let yourself get in a slump—and do not resort to whatever is in the office candy dish. Breakfast cookies are not just for breakfast, and can be a lifesaver at those critical moments when you need the energy!

Parents know that those moments between picking children up for school and dropping them off for extracurricular activities are critical. Children need calories from fruit, nuts, oats, etc. to keep them going and perform well. Breakfast cookies are great for those moments!

Hikes, walks, yoga, and more

You need lots of water and a boost of energy from a delicious snack when you reach the top of the summit or the end of the yoga session. You’re feeling cleansed and the last thing you can imagine is a heavy meal. Take a breakfast cookie with you (and one for a friend)!

Improve how you feel

We created breakfast cookies because we believe cookies are more than a dessert or treat. A cookie can be packed with goodness and deserves to be eaten at any time of day, when you need a pick-me-up. Find a flavor that inspires you: apple cinnamon, cranberry orange walnut, or lemon blueberry.

Discover the variety in the Breakfast Cookie Variety Box. That way, you can have them in stock for those important moments at home, at work, or on the go. Let us know how they help your lifestyle and where or when they have been most useful for you. Enjoy!
