I really liked the Morning Sunshine Breakfast Cookie that came in my Cuisine Cube delivery. I’ve heard of breakfast cookies but usually assume that they aren’t gluten free.
The Apple Cinnamon Quinoa cookie is all natural, high in protein and has slow release carbs. It is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and all ingredients are non-GMO.
This breakfast cookie is thick and hearty with a nice crunch on the outside while still being soft on the inside. That’s extra impressive considering that I failed to notice that the package said to store “in freezer or refrigerator, thaw before consuming” and instead left the cookie in my pantry for at least a week before trying it. Good thing they are all individually wrapped.
The texture was like a thick oatmeal cookie, hearty, soft and chewy all at the same time. This cookie does contain gluten-free rolled oats in addition to organic rice flour, tapioca flour and quinoa flour. It is sweetened with agave which I sometimes think gives things a strange flavor but I didn’t notice it at all in this cookie. The cookie was sweet but not too sweet for breakfast. I could taste the cinnamon and apple flavors but they weren’t overpowering.
Anyone who reads my posts knows that I’m all for convenient breakfast foods that I can grab and go.
This cookie will be making it into my rotation. You can order them in packs of three here. This fall apple flavor would pair perfectly with your favorite warm beverage.
