Keto Hazelnut Breakfast Cookies

I don't know about you, but for me the morning is a super busy (like pull my hair out) time of the day. Everything seems to happen at once- my daughter running around looking for everything I told her to put together the night before, the dog wakes up and needs to go out like immediately, I realize hubby set up the coffee the night before.... you get the idea.

For someone who likes to just be able to wake up and press a button and have coffee start, cooking breakfast is a big nope. Not going to happen. Not during the week. So how do we have a healthy breakfast without cooking, especially if eating Keto?  My answer is make ahead, grab n go recipes like these keto breakfast cookies.

My keto breakfast cookies are crunchy, sweet and nutty. They freeze really well and defrost fast. The breakfast cookies last a full week stored in an air tight container. You can make a whole month's worth of cookies- keep enough for a week out and freeze the rest. Remove them from the freezer each week!  Simple.  Breakfast for a month. Done.

Recipe Idea- these keto breakfast cookies can easily be turned into a savory crackers. Simply skip the stevia and coffee. Instead add a touch of pink himalayan salt and some seasonings like rosemary or thyme.
