Baked goods are a popular breakfast treat, but "treat" is the right word, as they also tend to be filled with largely empty carbohydrates and scant protein. After raising your blood sugar, the sugar crash comes an hour or so later when you get hungry again!

Instead, opt for a macronutrient (nearly equal amount of protein, fat and carbohydrates, the healthy kind!) breakfast baked good that you can make yourself. A two cookie serving also offers 39 grams of good-for-you carbs (oat flour and oats), 20 grams of protein and 26 grams of fats. 

These Protein Vanilla Breakfast Cookies feature Multi Collagen Protein, which offers skin, joint and gut support. Learn how to make these below!
