This giant cookie may not be your first initial reaction when it comes to back-to-school, but I happen to be a big fan of the breakfast cookie and how portable it can be.  It’s actually quite perfect when eaten either before work or at my desk on a busy morning.  It is even better when bacon and coconut/nut butter are involved.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free, Nightshade-Free

Serves 1

Ingredients

2/3 cup of Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free rolled oats
1 TB of whole chia seeds
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1 packet of Stevia or 1 tsp of coconut palm sugar
pinch of fine sea salt
1 TB of raw coconut butter
1 TB of raw sunflower seed butter
1/3 cup of coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk)
1 strip of bacon (turkey or pork), cooked and crumbled

extra coconut or sunflower seed butter, bacon, and/or fruit for topping

Directions

1. Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl: oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, sweetener, salt.  Mix well.

2. Stir in coconut butter, sunflower seed butter, and coconut milk until well-combined.

3. Gently stir in bacon crumbles.

4. Form the cookie dough into a circle, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight (or for at least two hours).

5. Top with additional coconut/seed/nut butter, bacon crumbles, and/or fruit.  I chose berries for my cookie, but I imagine that banana slices and cacao nibs would be delicious, too!
