Healthy Egg-Free, Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies | Real Food RN

Breakfast is always tricky with kids for a variety of reasons: time constraints, crabby kids in the early morning, and picky eaters. Throw food restrictions into the mix and it can be very frustrating to find a great way to do breakfast!

While doing an elimination diet with my son, we had to eliminate eggs, white sugar, and all grains. Hmmm. So, I did some experimenting and came up with some Healthy Egg-Free, Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies, and they were a big hit! We have made these a number of times since I first created this recipe and like to add in things like: shredded carrots, raisins, different nuts, etc. They are very versatile and hide all sorts of goodies! Enjoy!
