Some days there are just not enough hours in the day!

On days when I have to be out the door early, I still want my daughter to enjoy a nutritious breakfast.

I am a planner, a bit of a Type A personality (okay, more than a bit), and I like to plan in advance. I love cooking in batches to freeze for the week and use as needed. One of my go to recipes is this hidden veggie breakfast cookie. Just grab, go and eat nutritiously while on the run!

This recipe is great, even for the pickiest of eaters. Yes, it’s filled with nutrient-rich ingredients and, of course, veggies, but it also contains chocolate! It’s such a simple recipe I like to double it to freeze half to use on a later date.

This is also a great recipe that parents and kids can make together. Let the kids grate the veggies (with adult help), mash the bananas, and help form the cookies for baking.

Part of my goal in living a real food lifestyle is to teach my daughter to have a passion for nutritious food. I find the more I let her help, the more interested she is in eating a variety of nutrient-rich, homemade foods!
