If someone tells you you can't have dessert for breakfast, say, "psh, bye!" You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

You CAN have dessert for breakfast, especially if that dessert isn't jam packed with sugar, which is one of the many beautiful things about these Maple Pecan Gluten Free Breakfast Cookies.

I'm usually crunched for time in the morning, so I like my breakfast to be quick and easy. Usually, I'll whip up some fast scrambled eggs, but with a new year upon us, I wanted to step outside my box and find other quick, healthy options.

I thought about overnight oats, but as I was looking in my pantry for flavor ideas, I spotted a box of chocolate chip cookie mix. Oooooo cookies!

FOCUS, Nicole. You're trying to plan a breakfast. Ok, ok. Sugary chocolate chip cookies are out, but I can make healthier, more savory cookies that I won't feel guilty about eating for breakfast.

Gluten free breakfast cookies. YEP. We're doing it.

Then I spied my Maple Better Stevia from Now Foods. I've been wanting to try that! What would mix well with maple?

I dug through my snack shelf and BOOM: pecans.

With my inspiration nailed, I got to pulling together some other ingredients. Oats, eggs, a little oil, a banana - all things that make for a good breakfast.

I mixed up some batter, plopped the dough on a cookie sheet and a few minutes later my house smelled SO DELICIOUS!

The final result was perfection. They're the perfect mix of sweet and savory. They're filling. They're healthy, and the Maple Better Stevia gave these the perfect sugar-free punch of flavor. That stuff is pure magic.

Now I have a whole batch of these gluten free breakfast cookies ready to enjoy with a cup of coffee as I dive in to my morning emails. Mornings just got so much better (and tastier!).
