Make these healthy whole grain cookies yourself and enjoy a high-fiber sweet snack which is absolutely perfect for breakfast!
Cookies..oh I love this word.. whole grain cookies with coffee for breakfast is even better! These whole grain cookies are healthy, delicious without being very sweet and go perfectly with coffee in the morning. I like them a lot because you can make a large batch and store them in the fridge. They’re the perfect snack. Yummy and very filling too.
Plus, whole grains have so many health benefits such as improving your circulatory system, helping you lose extra pounds and more!
Now let me tell you about this new brand of coffee I tried recently. I’m not a huge coffee fan, but still.. I do enjoy a good cup of coffee for once in a while. What I like most about Nuvia Café is its flavor! Being healthier and all it’s a plus of course (it contains Ganoderma, African Mango and Pomegranate extracts) but that’s not what I like most about it. This Sumatran Arabica Coffee has an amazing strong flavor. It smells delicious also and it has a yummy, thick foam which I love. So, if you usually enjoy strong, flavorful coffee this is just right for you! Check out their website for more info!
