Healthy Muesli Breakfast Cookies

Muesli cookies are a perfect on-the-go snack that you can make ahead. I love that these cookies are filled with nourishing ingredients without refined sugars and are easy to make.

The seeds (pumpkin, pepita, chia seeds and LSA) provide a good source of protein, essential fatty acids, fibre and nutrients including B vitamins, zinc and anti-inflammatory omega-3s. Meanwhile oats are incredibly nutritious and a good source of B vitamins, manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. Oats are rich in soluble fibre including beta-glucans which are said to:

  • Reduced LDL and total cholesterol levels

  • Reduced blood sugar and insulin response

  • Increased feeling of fullness

  • Increased growth of good bacteria in the digestive tract.
