Here is a chocolate chip cookie that I would actually give my kids for breakfast. I am breaking my no chocolate before 2:00pm rule here. Okay, maybe I didn’t set this rule in stone, but there is something a little weird about having chocolate in the morning for me. I feel completely fine breaking my own self-imposed rule for these chocolate chip zucchini coconut cookies, though. These cookies just aren’t heavy on the system, yet are very filling. They are a great balance! To boot they use something that we usually have an abundance of at the end of the summer, zucchini.
I have been trying to invigorate my morning meals and mix it up so we aren’t eating homemade granola everyday, as great as it is. These chocolate chip zucchini cookies are a great addition to the breakfast routine. It’s just nice to have a few different ideas in the arsenal. So now through September I will be featuring some different breakfast ideas.
These chocolate chip coconut breakfast cookies are so nice and portable, too. The kids think they are a fun on-the-go treat and are wowed that mom would actually let them have cookies for breakfast. These cookies are a great nutritious boost for those mornings that you’ve gotta get up and go, go, go. Or they work great for a snack. Or they work great as a dessert. Or all three.
