Being a new mom doesn't always allow for extravagant meals…or meals at all for that matter. So I wanted to find something quick and easy, but healthy as well. This recipe was just that, but I put my own "healthy" alternatives to test when baking up these treats. To significantly cut down on the fats and sugars I substituted two 4oz jars of apple and blueberry baby food for all of the butter, Splenda brown sugar for the packed brown sugar, and gluten free Redmill oat flour for both the wheat and white flour. Also, I didn't have wheat germ handy so I used whole flax seeds instead. I got creative with some slivered almonds and walnuts to add in some omega 3's. These turned out fabulous and are a super healthy breakfast option or quick snack to keep me powered through the day. Next time I'll try adding in a scoop or two of protein powder to take it to the next level.
