Friday Favorites + 5 Ingredient Breakfast Cookies!

Happy Friday!

Man this weekend came fast.  Did anyone else feel like they just blinked and the week was gone?  I guess it’s a good thing since I have a fun weekend planned with my girls!  Can’t wait to relax in Tahoe with the two of them.  We have dinner planned on the lake tonight, a hike tomorrow morning followed by a wine and brew fest in North Star Village.  So looking forward to catching up and relaxing 🙂

It wasn’t until I sat down last night and was browsing online that I realized today is September 11th.  A day that will never be forgotten.

I can vividly remember exactly where I was, what I was doing, who I was with and the explosion of emotions I felt.  Memories that I’m sure I’ll always remember but wish I never had.  My heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones on that day.

Now, as usual for my Friday posts I’m sharing a few favorites 🙂

Favorite Healthy Treat – Definitely has to be these incredibly easy, clean and delicious breakfast cookies we made a few weeks ago.


I popped them into the freezer and have been enjoying one every so often in the evenings when my sweet tooth arrives.


The Love Nugget asks for them almost every day for his school snack.  I don’t mind sending them with him since they have not added sweeteners (other than what’s in the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips).

Favorite Fall Craving – Okay it’s not fall yet but I can dream about all things pumpkin can’t I?  Like this Protein Pumpkin Spice Coffee?
