Chunky Monkey Quinoa Breakfast Cookies

Posting a cookie recipe on the day that you’re starting a 3-day juice cleanse probably isn’t the best idea.
Here I am, sipping on green juice, practically drooling on my keyboard. I want to devour my screen! Seriously, all I want to be eating are these Chunky Monkey Quinoa Breakfast Cookies, and instead I’m drinking vegetables and won’t be having another bite of solid food for three days…wah!
BUT I couldn’t resist sharing these. I made them on Friday and they were gone by Saturday, so that was a sign that you needed them as soon as possible.
We’re big fans of breakfast cookies around here, aren’t we? There’s been a total of four different flavors so far – Toasted Coconut Quinoa Breakfast Cookies, Zucchini Bread Quinoa Breakfast Cookies (one of my faves!!), Carrot Cake Quinoa Breakfast Cookies and Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Breakfast Cookies – and honestly, I think these new ones might be my favorite.
The goodies inside this version are just too hard to resist.
First there’s chocolate. We haven’t had chocolate in our cookies yet, and let’s be honest…chocolate just makes everything better.
Second, there’s peanut butter + banana, which if you know me, is pretty much my absolute favorite combo.
Third, there’s chopped dates which again…obsessed.
And fourth, well….they’re cookies. for breakfast. I just can’t even.
