Very Berry Smoothie Breakfast Cookies

There’s a different story to every recipe I post. Some are family favorites waiting for future generations to be enjoyed, others are inventions I literally dreamed up over night, and a few happen to be complete accidents. Thus is the case with today’s cookie recipe.

Since our MN summer has been lacking the hot temperatures that are normal for this time of year, I am beyond elated to be heading somewhere hot and humid. While temperatures in the high 70’s make for a comfortable summer for most people, the summer lover in me cannot wait to finally break a sweat.

One good thing about the “low” temps is that I haven’t had a reason not to turn on my oven. I’ve been happily baking away lately. Eating sweet treats and going for a run in gorgeous weather…. does it get much better than this?

Actually, yes. Eating doughnuts without having to work out would be even more amazing, but we’re talking about reality here. There’s no greater motivator than finishing my run when these fluffy doughnuts of wonderfulness are awaiting me. It’s the biggest reason why I work out.
