Breakfast cookies are all the rage these days, and you can see the appeal. Who doesn't want to eat cookies for breakfast? Kids certainly love it, and done right, it can actually be a great way to pack some nutrition into their morning. These paleo double chocolate breakfast cookies are a huge hit in my house. They're easy to throw together before the kids are even awake, and you can make them low-carb as well.
Many people are surprised to find that chocolate is a healthy food. It's the added sugars and fillers that make most store-bought chocolate bad for you. Using unsweetened cocoa powder and extra-dark chocolate (think 85 percent cacao or higher) allows you to sweeten to taste with sugar alternatives while maximizing chocolate's antioxidant benefits. I like to put the chocolate chunks right on the top before baking so they seem like a real treat for my kids.
Makes 10 cookies.
